Zardozi Editor-in-Chief Rina Chandarana John got a first look at Indian-born designer Bibhu Mohapatra’s latest collection at Fashion Houston.
His Spring 2015 Ready-to-wear collection was full of eclectic prints and contemporary patterns, showcasing a perfect blend of Eastern trends infused into Western cuts.
Coveted by the likes of Michelle Obama, Mohapatra’s eponymous label has sent waves through the fashion industry through his presentation of luxury Ready-to-wear and couture collections at New York Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, Fashion Houston and in Mumbai at Lakme Fashion Week.
Mohapatra told Zardozi that he’s hoping to create an all South Asian collection featuring saris and lenghas and that his Motherland is a constant source of inspiration for his work.
