Whether it’s a model sashaying down the runway in one of his couture creations or a woman donning a spectacular diamond encrusted necklace from his jewellery line, Bibhu Mohapatra is pushing the boundaries of creativity with his latest jewellery collaboration with Forevermark says Sanjana Parikh

Hailing from the eastern state of Odisha, Bibhu Mohapatra has had a deeply entrenched love for the vibrant textiles and luxurious fabrics that India has to offer. His mastery with fabrics led to the launch of his eponymous label that has been ruling fashion runways since 2009 and has seen a slew of A-list celebrities donning his stunning creations. Edgy and bold, most of his ensembles denote the subtle power of femininity that every woman possesses.While he was completing his degree from the famed Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City, Bibhu honed his skills as an assistant designer at the iconic American fashion label Halston. His eye for detail and keen sense of aesthetics was recognized as he was awarded Critics Award Best Evening Wear Designer in his senior year. A nine-year stint at J. Mendel after his graduation taught Bibhu the tricks of the trade and helped cement his career. Today, he is a well known name amongst fashion circles in his own right and creates custom couture evening gowns, cocktail dresses and furs for a select group of private clients in New York, Europe and India

But creating high fashion ball gowns can be wildly different from crafting opulent diamond necklaces. A true testament to his creativity and skill, Bibhu has managed to combine these distinct talents into a single collaboration. So how exactly did he go about this? Weeks of brainstorming on what exactly he could bring to the table occupied his thoughts prior to his meeting with Sachin Jain of Forevermark. “My main focus was to present what my brand stands for and what I will take away from this collaboration. It was the curiosity and hunger for gaining knowledge on the art of jewellery making that led to this collaboration. I had some idea about what jewellery means culturally but did not have technical knowhow. I made numerous sketches along with the design team who gave me many options on how to best realize my initial ideas and thus Artemis was conceived. I am way more informed now than I was at the beginning of this journey.”
