Prabal Gurung: Designer in the Spotlight

If you have been following my blog, you know that I am a big fan of Prabal Gurung and his collections.

I am loving all the pretty prints in Prabal Gurung’s Pre-fall 2012 from sunglasses to shoes along with kaleidoscope pattern on dresses, dark and bold pattern with a mix of amazing silhouettes/textures from Fall 2012 and bright colourful candy-colour mixture of modern silhouettes, laser-sharp tailoring, asymmetry, and florals from Resort 2013 collections.

Also, a lot more celebrities are wearing Prabal Gurung and I am so happy to see that. His success has rocketed through the sky in the last few years and yet he is still humble and grounded to his roots. Prabal Gurung is always eager to convey that he was incredibly proud to share his Nepalese heritage and that he never forgets his country. From press interviews to professional endeavours it is true that Prabal Gurung has maintained close ties with Nepal and  he mentions Nepal in almost every interview .

Recently Anne Hathaway wore R13 White Jersey Hand Draped Gown with Tulle Corset to Batman premier. Michelle Obama, Lady Gaga, Zoe Saldana, Barbara Bush Ashley, Greene, Olivia-Palermo, Jennifer Lawrence,  Jessica Chastain, Rachel Weisz, Hailee Steinfield,,Sonam Kapoor and Ginnifer Goodwin  were seen donning Prabal Gurung dresses as well.

One day I dream of wearing a Prabal Gurung dress as well and hope my dream will come true soon  🙂

Prabal Gurung : A Fashion designer from Nepal

It is always so good to see anyone from Nepal doing well in an international level and I am so glad to see Prabal Gurung in the international fashion arena.

I saw his designs on Michelle Obama, Demi Moore, Zoe Saldana and Oprah Winfrey. I just love him and his creations.

Here is the excerpt from his website introducing him.

 “Gurung was born in Singapore and raised in Kathmandu,Nepal. It was in New Delhi,India that his design career truly began. While studying at New Delhi’s National Institute of Fashion Technology, Gurung freelanced at several production and fashion houses and apprenticed with Manish Arora. His travels took him to Melbourne and London, where he assisted stylists for various fashion shows and editorials at international publications. In 1999, Gurung moved to New York City. He began his career in New York interning for Donna Karan while attending Parsons School of Design. In his first year, he was awarded the “Best Designer” title at the annual Parsons /FITdesign competition.

After Parsons, Gurung spent two years with Cynthia Rowley’s design and production team, which allowed him to gain even more invaluable experience within the fashion industry. Soon after, he was appointed design director at the iconic Bill Blass. After five successful years, Gurung left his post at Blass to launch his own collection, PRABAL GURUNG.”

Look at his collection from Spring 2012 collect here . They are so amazing and beautiful. No wonder so many celebrities loves his collection.

 

Sarah Jessica Parker  was in Australia recently and she wore Prabal Gurung. It was just beautiful.

 He is also the goodwill ambassador for Maiti Nepal .  This is what he told ekantipur about his association, “A society free from human trafficking is possible and we must realise that it is our responsibility to make this world a better place for all mankind. By simply stating our desire, we sow the seeds of great change,”

 Best wishes for all the good work.
