I love Bibhu. The CFDA loves Bibhu. Fashion Forward, Making It on the CW loves Bibhu. I thought about writing a story with just xoxo's, but here's some textual love for this talented visionary designer from Orissa, India.
His CV reads like a dream: Assistant Designer at Halston, straight out of design college; Design Director at J. Mendel where he revived the fashion house; recipient of the Young Innovator Award from the National Arts Club. And now at the helm of his own namesake label, Bibhu recently showed at the NY Fashion Week Fall 2010 shows. But of course, you know you've really made it when your gown appears on Gossip Girl (the dress to the left was seen on evil Juliet's character earlier this season).
