Ibhana featured in Potomac Lifestyle Magazine September 01 2018



Whether you are taking a day trip to a Virginia winery, touring Paris, or are a keynote speaker for a convention in Cleveland, we’ve got you covered. Partnering with local boutique Ibhana Creations, we created three looks to inspire your style for the next time you travel.

Meena Tharmaratnam started Ibhana when, after a divorce, she needed to rejoin the workforce, calling it “a kick in the pants that started a fire.” While she didn’t have a background in business or fashion, she loved art and had developed a great eye. Meena began by importing and selling Indian shawls from her home in 2002, graduating to fashion and trunk shows for the next 10 years. After advice and mentoring found at the Rockville Women’s Business Center, she launched her first location with a pop-up shop in Cleveland Park in 2012.

When she opened her shop in Potomac, Meena quickly learned to tailor her inventory to the needs of women in the area.

“She travels a lot,” Meena says of the usual customer. “We focus on travel-friendly, wrinkle-free clothing that is easy to care for.”

The shop features Canadian and American lines offered by designers such as Joseph Ribkoff, IC, Samuel Dong, Tianello and Papillon Blanc in sizes 2 through 20.
