Bibhu Mohapatra, Aditi define luxury at a summit

New York-based designer Bibhu Mohapatra and actress Aditi Rao Hydari know a thing or two about luxury and were present at the 2016 edition of Robb Report's Limited Edition Luxury Summit .

Mohapatra, who was favored by US First Lady Michelle Obama, said: "It's all about finer details, being classy, and appreciating the idea of craft and heritage and the study behind it."

Asked what luxury means to him, and he says, "Fashion became more vivid after I left India. I started looking at my history and heritage as luxury, as I built my brand in New York six years back. Having said that, India is in my veins, I don't have to particularly 'think' India while designing," he said.

Aditi, on luxury said,"I treasure my mother's embroidered pieces that I still have in my studio. She is the one who taught me to sew," the designer shared.

She also revealed how she thought having cash in her wallet was true luxury these days. It truly is, Ms. Hydari!
