Bibhu was appointed Design Director of J Mendel.
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 at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in New York with critical praise.
After ten years working as a designer for other top luxury fashion houses, Bibhu Mohapatra launched his very own ready-to-wear label.
