Designer Watch: Prabal Gurung
Prabal Gurung, Resort 2013, Prabal Gurung Fall 2012
This Singapore designer was raised in Nepal and studied fashion in India, so naturally his designs are a fusion of his diverse cultural and spiritual influences.
Gurung debuted his first collection at NYFW a mere three years ago, and has since become a favourite amongst modern style icons like Zoe Saldana, Kate Bosworth, Florence Welch, Lady Gaga, and even the First Lady, Michelle Obama.
There’s been loads of buzz around his Resort 2013 collection, with his graphics being described as “works of art” worthy of a canvas, rather than a silk peplum dress. It sounds fussy, but his use of primary colours and simple lines make for effortless tailoring.
