After graduating from FIT, Bibhu was hired by Gilles Mendel, CEO of the iconic French furrier J. Mendel, where he became the label’s Design Director - a position he held for nine years. After almost a decade at the helm of J. Mendel, Bibhu, responding to the rapidly increasing demand for his work, moved out on his own and launched his eponymous label, Bibhu Mohapatra, during New York Fashion week in 2009. He is now completing his eighth ready-to-wear collection under his namesake label, which features elegant designs inspired by the theories of human movement and expression. The Spring 2014 collection draws reference from the methods that lead modern and expressionist dance – defying any limitation or regulation of self-expression and defining the modern woman.

Rising young designer Ryan Jordan debuted his SS/14 collection Friday night, September 6, during New York Fashion Week, and the presentation blew us away. Only two years out of Parsons, Jordan went straight to work as Nicola Formichetti’s assistant at Mugler and has worked on projects for Lady Gaga. Now he’s launched his own line that is already demanding attention within the fashion world.
Jordan became interested in fashion at a young age – influenced by his grandmother, who was a dressmaker in the Philippines, and his mother, who studied and worked in fashion. He sees fashion as something that allows us to cope with our insecurities, and wants to create designs that give women confidence. “The RYAN JORDAN woman always has a fearless exterior,” the designer explained.
