CITY 2020 with Bibhu MohapatraExperience the vibrant celebration of fashion, art, and culture as the Tampa Museum of Art celebrates its centennial year and the 10th annual CITY. Watch the Museum transform into an energetic runway filled with fashions by internationally renowned designer Bibhu Mohapatra.

Growing up with his family in Odisa, on the east coast of India, Bibhu Mohapatra’s appreciation for sumptuous Indian fabrics and vibrant colors began at an early age. This initial exposure to textiles and garment construction still inspires Bibhu’s designs and permeates throughout the collections of his namesake label.

Bibhu’s eponymous label, Bibhu Mohapatra, launched its first collection during New York Fashion week in 2009. Since then, the fashion house is currently being sold at Bergdorf Goodman, Neiman Marcus, Lane Crawford and select specialty boutiques across North America, Europe, Russia and the Middle East.

To date, celebrities such as Hilary Swank, Gwyneth Paltrow, Glenn Close, Jennifer Lopez, Ciara, Rita Ora and Lupita Nyong’o have all worn Bibhu’s designs and he had the honor of dressing the former US First Lady, Michelle Obama.

Proceeds from CITY: Fashion+Art+Culture benefit the Museum’s exhibition and education programs.

Chairs: Allison Beard Luzier and Enrique Crespo
