(5)

With the encouragement of friends and family, he decided to pursue his dream and moved to New York City to attend the Fashion Institute of Technology in 1996. He graduated one year later, having received the prestigious Critic’s Award for Best Evening Wear Designer of the Year. In 1998, while at F.I.T., Bibhu was offered a position as an assistant designer at Halston. There, he developed his design skills and in 1999, when Gilles Mendel, CEO of the iconic French furrier J. Mendel, sought to repackage his label into a more youthful brand and expand into ready-to-wear, he hired Bibhu to help realize his vision. Bibhu was appointed Design Director, and he transformed J. Mendel into one of the most sought-after luxury fashion labels. The brand appeared regularly in the press and on the red carpet with Angelina Jolie, Cate Blanchet, Sienna Miller and other style icons wearing Bibhu’s designs. Following the Spring 2008 J. Mendel collection, Bibhu resigned from J. Mendel in order to establish his own label. Since then, he has presented many collections, under his own label, to much critical praise.

To change, we must move, be it awkward, unfamiliar, uncomfortable, and (hopefully) enlightening.

Because standing still is no longer an option.

The Giant Rests in Peace.

“Generations from now, when parents teach their children what is meant by courage, the story of John Lewis will come to mind — an American who knew that change could not wait for some other person or some other time; whose life is a lesson in the fierce urgency of now." - Barack Obama.

Lovingly called the Conscience of Congress, beloved civil rights leader John Lewis devoted his life to stand against inequality and injustice with the non violent ideals of his guru, Martin Luther King.

The unmatched beauty of Odisha handloom - Odisha Ikat.
As featured in Harper’s Bazaar India a while ago. A dress in a intricate pasapali pattern handloom silk, by the incredible artisans of Odisha’s Bargarh district.

The name Pasapali is derived from pasā or gambling games using Chess board from ancient India. These saris have intricate check patterns of contrast colors resembling the chess boards which gives it such name.
