Ladies Who Lunch: Bibhu Mohapatra Fall 2011!

A native of Orissa, India, Bibhu Mohapatra is one of the fastest rising stars in the New York Fashion world. But, success didn’t come overnight. With a few interesting twists and turns, this talented designer came to the US, studied at FIT and paid his dues at J. Mendel before going out on his own.

Currently part of the CFDA Fashion Incubator program, Bibhu Mohapatra presented a beautiful and sophisticated Fall 2011 Collection at the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in New York.
Mr. Mohapatra’s collection draws on both the Indian culture he grew up in and the sensibility of his adopted American home. Rich colors, luxurious fabrics and a sense of drama are the highlights of this collection.

We met up with Bibhu Mohapatra in his design studio to discuss his Fall Collection, his Indian origins and his bright fashion future.
