Prasad is a design visionary. His technical brilliance was honed while working for over twelve years on the New York fashion scene with commendable stints at Calvin Klein Collection, John Varvatos, Oscar by Oscar de la Renta, and Ellen Tracy. Raised in New York, Prasad acquired a BBA with a major in international marketing before continuing on to study at F.I.T.

He decided to use his years of hands-on design expertise and fine craftsmanship to create Bishop, a company whose ideals are of quality and tailoring.

In 2003, Prasad met his future partner and wife on a blind date while working at Oscar. His signature lies in his structured construction (of clothing) and hyper-attention to detail and he currently is responsible for design and marketing at Bishop.

"Style is about defining an essence or
energy… We rework classics, bringing an
indefinable edge to them."

spacer KARAM KIM

Korean born and internationally raised, F.I.T. graduate Karam earned formal training under fashion greats Donna Karan, Michael Kors, and Tse. This training has given her an impressive knowledge of design and tailoring - something that she draws upon today. Karam arrived to New York City in 1998 to study fashion design at F.I.T. She maintained a residency in the East Village, where she drew upon street edge inspiration. This led to glowing reviews for her feminine, street-edge take on conceptual pieces with clean lines.

Karam met her future collaborator and husband in 2003 while working at Yigal Azrouel. She currently is responsible for design and manufacturing at Bishop.

"Because fashion has a voice that translates over continents, now is the time for a brand to influence what young men and women wear."
