"She is really smart, educated, with a passion for fine clothes." That's the way 37-year-old fashion designer Bibhu Mohapatra describes his typical customer. Credit his luxurious red-carpet ball gowns for heightening the fashion world's recognition of Bibhu's exquisitely refined sensibility. His dresses and gowns have an immensely loyal clientele because they strike a delicate balance between classic and modern. Yet what makes them unique is their timelessness. Bibhu's clothes are destined to have a life beyond any one season. "My typical client is not a fashionista," he says.
