Prabal Gurung’s Spring/Summer 2015

My favourite designer, Prabal Gurung just showcased his latest collection. His latest collection is inspired by native Nepal and is playful with texture and silhouette, offering his signature feminine styles mixed with an unexpected dose of androgynous charm.

In his SS15, the designer wanted to continue what he began last season. ″I wanted to continue the journey,″ he said. ″This time it′s more a visual diary of her trek up the mountains.″ We′re back in the Himalayas, only now it′s spring. Instead of deep reds, he used a palette of sunset pastels.

According to Vouge, Prabal Gurung went for a more undressed approach with sassy slashes, slits and keyhole flashes of flesh. Sporty in silhouette with racer-back vest styles and little flirty skirts, his midnight tones and dusky grey-purple palette kept it regal and evening worthy – iridescence incarnating short shifts and T-shirt numbers – while zingy knits continued along this peek-a-boo vein, veering off around the body. And this was very much the theme and silhouette of the collection, drawing on frills and spills of hemlines as it went, the shorter dresses towards the end of which were the prettiest and most covetable.

The collection got lots of positive reviews from fashion editors and fashionistas.

I am in love with  the awesome prints of Himalayas and clouds. Of course, I loved it all but here are my favourites.

Apart from the clothes, I am lusting on those amazing killer heels.

Prabal Gurung Resort 2015

Inspired by a show of the British artist Matthew Stone’s work at The Hole gallery, Prabal Gurung ( my favourite designer), named his latest Resort collection: Unconditional Love. He said he approached his striking new Resort collection as if it were a “one-stop shop from morning to evening”. The idea, he explained, was prompted by all the traveling he’s been doing to trunk shows in places as far-flung as Singapore and Toronto.

I love everything from this collection, from tees and sweatshirts to floor-length gala dresses with prints or jacquards designed to evoke Stone’s brushstrokes. The prints and jacquards came in vivid shades of red or blue, sometimes mingled together, and they turned the clothes into moving canvases.

Here are some of my favourite from the collections..And looks at those choose, love love love.

View the rest of the collection .

Apart from his latest collection, he is definitely making waves around the world and doing a great job.

Take care,

Prabal Gurung Ready to wear Fall 2014 collection

My favourite designer, Prabal Gurung, just showcased his ready to wear Fall 2014 collection and I have to say it is one of my favourite collections so far. The collection reflects the kingdom of Mustang, a part of Dhaulagiri Zone, one of the seventy-five districts of Nepal, and definitely the most amazing place in earth. I am in love with the vivid shades of saturated crimson and saffron worked into rich layered looks, filled with draping that recalls the robes of monks. The lot of his cashmere were produced in Nepal which adds to the collection’s vibrancy.

The catwalk was dominated by marigold, crimson, bordeaux, black, gray, and ivory palette and featured asymmetry, wrapped fabric, embroidery, masterful draping, high slits, hiked hemlines, and the mixing of textures and proportion– soft chiffon micro skirts paired with big chunky sweaters.

Of course I loved it all but here are my favourites.

 

And here is the full collection.

The man himself 🙂

Take care everyone ,

Femininity with a bite… This is how Prabal Gurung describes the shapes he intends to create for meeting the needs of his customers. According to him, this variety of luxurious with minimalistically chic and also casual wear are just what ladies need most for their best looks. So that’s what has been interpreted with the language of fashion in the impressive Prabal Gurung pre-fall 2014 collection. The strictly feminine and classic designs are followed with some modernized and impressive options, which sometimes are observed in a single combo with each other, too.

If you like sophisticated and chic items, please check his collection and I am sure you will love them.

“There’s such a feeling of satisfaction when something you imagined turned into something real”.

“Being the first Prabal Gurung”

The lasted issue of on TNM Magazine featured Prabal Gurung on the cover with his story.

Prabal-Gurung-TNM-Magazine

Prabal Gurung had his inspirations, but it was never his purpose in life to follow anyone’s footsteps. Everyone is born different, but many of us tend to focus on molding ourselves into someone we admire, or someone the society deems a “success”. He very well could have been as big as his inspirations, but that was not what he was aiming for. Prabal was different and he knew it better than anyone else. Regardless, he wasn’t meant to be the next big thing. He was destined to become someone much greater, he was destined to become Prabal Gurung.

Considering the fact that his dream of becoming a fashion designer completely contradicted the norm that benchmarked doctors and engineers as the ultimate occupation, Prabal was headed for a lot of skepticism. He was bullied for being different, and his inclination towards arts and design was never taken well by the all-boys crowd at St. Xavier’s School. But on a positive note, this just might have prepared him well to power through all the adversities of life. No wonder, today he sits high in the global fashion industry as the darling of the sensational New York fashion scene, rubbing shoulders with the A-listers of Hollywood. It is safe to say that right now there aren’t many Nepalese people who can boast of such achievements.

 ” Today he sits high in the global fashion industry as the darling of the sensational New York fashion scene, rubbing shoulders with the A-listers of Hollywood. It is safe to say that right now there aren’t many Nepalese people who can boast of such achievements “

Born in Singapore, Prabal was brought up in Kathmandu but he began his professional design career in India where he spent eight years. He then moved to New York to continue his studies at Parsons The New School for Design. After graduating, Prabal spent two years with Cynthia Rowley’s design and production teams. Soon after, he was appointed design director at the iconic Bill Blass. For many pursuant in the fashion field, this would have been considered an apex point in their careers. No one would have thought any less of him if he had decided to ride it out till his retirement. Prabal however, had bigger plans. He resigned the post he held for five years and launched his own collection – prabal gurung.

After that there was no looking back and it’s been a continuous ride uphill. It is no small achievement when your brand is the choice of a variety of powerful women from the likes of Oprah Winfrey, Rachel Weisz, Anne Hathaway, Demi Moore, Jennifer Lawrence and Sarah Jessica Parker to Michelle Obama and The Duchess of Cambridge. Needless to say, Prabal Gurung’s career has already reached dizzying heights of success. Although he remains firmly rooted to his Nepali ancestry, there is no denying that India and more so New York has had a huge role in his accomplishments.

“Being a global citizen, I have my roots in Nepal. However, I don’t want to take away the contributions that India has on me. I know the hidden nuances in our culture about that aspect. When I started designing in Nepal, everybody was laughing as they termed design as a “bored housewives’ hobby”. I grew up watching Hindi movies and listening to Hindi music as much as I listen to Nepali music. It has shaped my aesthetics and my love for music and it allowed me to dream. It was in India that I found out that there is a legitimate career to be made and when I launched my collection, India was the first to embrace me, so I don’t want to take away that from me. And finally you can say that I found myself in New York. America gave me an opportunity to be myself, live my dream and in complete honesty, a story like mine wouldn’t have been possible anywhere else in the world. I’ve lived in America for 14 years and accepting the citizenship has been emotional, natural progression in terms of business and profession.”

” Although he remains firmly rooted to his Nepali ancestry, there is no denying that India and more so New York has had a huge role in his accomplishments “

Family plays an important role in every child’s development and it was no different in Prabal’s case. Prabal highly credits his mother to be his guiding source of inspiration. Considering the conservative mentality of the time period and society he grew up in, the career path he chose wasn’t going to be easy to follow. Almost everyone wanted him to conform to the basics and be normal. But his mother encouraged him through every step, and rather embraced him by convincing him he was perfect just the way he was. With the support of his mother and the rest of his family, there wasn’t much the world could do to stop his ascent. Prabal did not have everything handed to him; he had to work harder than the rest. Had he quit sketching, concentrated more on improving his grades like his teachers encouraged him to, his initials would have probably never acknowledged a second glance. 

With over a decade of hard work in the profession, he is now in a position where he excels at what he does and is a prominent figure in the fashion industry. Now a major source of pride for the entire country, Prabal has been doing his part to give back to the country as well. Utilizing the platform he has achieved, he along with his sister, brother and like-minded friends founded the “Sikshya Foundation Nepal” to give back to the society and education.

“I realized that the platform I had and the attention that I was getting, it wasn’t fair to keep it to myself. I wanted to turn that to something I always was avid about. The satisfaction I get out of this is amazing. It’s been such a gratifying, fulfilling, positive and spiritual feeling. I’m very proud of the fact that we’ve been able to do this.”

” Utilizing the platform he has achieved, he along with his sister, brother and like-minded friends founded the “Sikshya Foundation Nepal” to give back to the society and education “

There is no doubt that his resilience, passion and personality played a huge role in his success. There are only a handful of Nepalese people who we can look up to as having highly succeeded by following their passion and Prabal Gurung simply personifies the agenda. Not being the one to let herd mentality stir his thoughts, Prabal never let his humble origins restrain his boundless dreams. 

“I’ve never felt less than. We should remember that we have a rich culture and heritage and we are no less than the rest of the world. The fact that I am from Nepal gave me the identity and great advantage as the first designer in New York from Nepal. We have to change our mindset. Its not a question of bigger or lesser but its just people are different. We need to embrace our different qualities and that’s when we realize our strengths and that will take us places.”

We love reveling whenever our fellow countrymen succeed in putting Nepal on the global map, and Prabal is currently the epitome of that success on a global scale. He has also opened doors to people who dare to think out of the box, and he now serves as a fine inspiration to succeed by following one’s passion. A firm believer of hard work and determination, this basically sums up his attitude towards success.

” I wish we could simply be supportive of each other and enjoy everyone’s success by following our dreams and encouraging and complementing each other. The minute you start thinking and be truly happy for someone’s success, success finds you! ”

“I feel honored that I am able to inspire so many young passionate people. You need to believe that there’s enough room for everyone and you need to define your own success. Always aspire to become the next YOU, not someone else. I firmly believe that necessity is the mother of all inventions. It is time for us to figure out who we are and what we stand for. We need to get out of the typical Nepali mentality and stop pitying ourselves that we’re born in a country that has been on the receiving end for grants from other countries. We should strive to be able to compete with the rest of the world. I wish we could simply be supportive of each other and enjoy everyone’s success by following our dreams and encouraging and complementing each other. The minute you start thinking and be truly happy for someone’s success, success finds you!”

– Oprah Winfrey at the start of my career. She’s been a source of inspiration for me. I was asked to make something for her from my first collection for the cover of O magazine (Oprah Winfrey Magazine), which she was sharing with Ellen DeGeneres. She loved it and it was an incredible moment for me. And also the first lady, Michelle Obama- who’s been a great supporter of new American designers and has put American fashion on a global map. I’ve had the chance to thank her for wearing my design on behalf of the entire nation.

– I didn’t. This is all I’ve ever wanted to do. Life is a journey and I want to enjoy it and the process. Since I wasn’t good in studies, I was more inclined towards arts, music and creative side of things.

What’s been your source of inspiration for the designs that you do every season? 

– It comes from everywhere – music, art, books, artists, places I’ve visited but the one thing that remains constant is the girl that I’m designing for.

In conversation with Prabal Gurung

My favourite designer, Prabal Gurung, was in Nepal to celebrate the festival of Tihar with his family and friends. I was so happy to follow his instagram where he treated his entire fan with great photos and videos every day.

He looks so cute in Nepali topi

Lucky for people in Kathmandu, he also organised a fundraiser for Shikshya Foundation Nepal , titled “In Conversation with Prabal Gurung” which became a sell out event.

prabal gurung

I so wished I was in Nepal for the event. Luckily for his fans like me RVL radio (Revolution radio, Nepal’s one of its kind online radio station, connecting people and music globally.), big thank btw, did the live broadcast of the event.

It was a great experience watching him speak so honestly. It was late night for me when it started but it was worth it when I listen to his story in his own words. I do have to admit some of the people who asked questions wasted their value opportunity by asking unimportant/useless questions but nevertheless the event was a huge success. I keep on reading experience of the people who were there and definitely envy them.

Here is the report on myrepublica.com regarding the event.

***

 “My family is the source of my strength and inspiration,” shared Prabal Gurung, the much acclaimed fashion designer, at a conversation program held at Army Officer’s Club Auditorium in Bhadrakali, Kathmandu on Friday.

Titled “In Conversation with Prabal Gurung”, the program was organized by Shikshya Foundation Nepal, of which Gurung is one of the founding members. The proceeds collected from the program will go to CNN Hero Pushpa Basnet’s Early Childhood Development Center (ECDC), an organization dedicated to educating the children of imprisoned parents in Nepal.

Ashutosh Tiwari, the Head of WaterAid Nepal was the moderator of the conversation, which was attended by hundreds of enthusiastic audience who was keen to see Gurung live and learn about the designer, whose list of clientele includes high profile Hollywood stars, along with the First Lady Michelle Obama.

When asked to share about his childhood days, Gurung opened up charmingly, “I was a bit different from my classmates and even my siblings from early on. I liked doing things my way and was always interested in doing creative works, like sketching. When I told my associates that I was interested in fashion designing, they advised me to take up something else as the profession in Nepal wasn’t much heard of or looked up to then. It was my mother who encouraged me to follow my dreams and assured me that being myself was perfectly fine.”

Gurung attributes his current position to the nine years of education on fashion designing in India and years of experience and practice in the US. To the youngsters aspiring to reach the heights of success in their career, he advised, “There’s room for everyone. All you need to do is believe in yourself, be yourself and work hard to achieve your dreams.”
Present at the event, Apeksha Ghimire, 13, a student of Kaasthamandap Vidhyalaya in Mandikhatar, shared, “I’m very glad to have come to this event because listening to Gurung’s success story has motivated me a lot. Being a Nepali, he has reached such great heights and it boosts me up as a student to strive harder to reach my goals too.” She further said the cause behind the charity event encouraged her to be a part of it.

Sharing her excitement, Pushpa Basnet shared, “Success is a result of continuous hardwork. These and many other life lessons are what the attendees of today’s event taking back after listening to Gurung’s success mantra.”

She further added that since the proceeds of the event will go to the education of her children from ECDC, the program has served two noble purposes.

I really wish he would come to OZ and I get an opportunity to meet him. Ohoo a girl can always dream 🙂

I was over the moon when RVL radio announced that they are going to have one on one with Prabal Gurung. BTW great job Prasan from RVL radio!

While I was listening to him, I wanted to go to Skype and talk to him too but I knew that there was a long queue so just enjoyed watching him on Revcam and listening to his answers.

Again, he proved he is down to earth and he was nice and humble throughout the conversation. I couldn’t believe 2 hours went so quickly and it was early morning for me here in Sydney 🙂

If you have missed the live broadcast, here are some snippets.

Some of my favourite quotes of Prabal Gurung so far.

My family is the source of my strength and inspiration”

 “The journey has been exciting‚ humbling‚ one of absolute gratitude and more than I had imagined”

“Always aspire to become the next you, not someone else”

“I would ask my country to be proud of me for taking a chance”

“I enjoy the highs and lows of life as I believe that when you are in the low the high comes the next that always makes me plan accordingly”

Here is another of his interview published on http://www.thehimalayantimes.com

Fashion icon Prabal Gurung has had a fantastic journey since he wowed the world with his eponymous collection at the New York Fashion Week 2009. His innovative and cutting-edge designs have made Gurung a known face in the global fashion circuit. Having had his designs adorned by the likes of First Lady Michelle Obama, The Duchess of Cambridge, Lady Gaga, Oprah Winfrey and other celebrities, Gurung has fashionably carved a niche for himself. In an exclusive with TGIF he spoke with Terence Lee straight from the heart.

Q. Tell us something about growing up in Nepal. Does that experience influence your designs?

A. Growing up in Nepal, I have always been aware of the rich culture and heritage and that has been a huge influence on me as a person and hence affects me as a designer. The way women gracefully carry themselves here in Nepal is reflected in my designs. The colours I choose are very subtle and my designs are predominantly red with draping like saris that are worn here. But at the same time I didn’t want to limit myself as an ethnic designer. I wanted to emerge as an international designer.

Q. From global fame after the New York Fashion Week 2009, you have gone from one achievement to another. How would you describe this journey till date?

A. The journey has been exciting, humbling, one of absolute gratitude and more than I had imagined. I didn’t imagine accomplishing this or that in this year, but I had always wanted to do all these things. When I moved to New York and started working in fashion most people did not know about Nepal. The fact that many designers and celebrities have now come to Nepal feels great. It feels great to represent Nepal in my own way and I feel blessed.

Q. One lesson you have learnt on this journey.

A. The journey has not been easy but there are always ups and downs with everyone. The one lesson I have learnt is perhaps to be completely honest and true to myself and to keep listening to my heart. I always feel that with 100 per cent integrity and absolute passion and hard work things will work out. Being famous cannot be the end goal.

Q. ‘Prabal Gurung’ is a brand in the Fashion World. Nepal sees you as an icon with pride. How do you feel about that?

A. It’s an honour I hold with great pride and absolute humility because I feel very blessed. I was not your typical bright student. If you had asked people back then if I was going to be this person, they would have laughed.

Nobody would have believed it, including me. I knew I wanted to do something different and something that I love. I hoped I would be able to survive in the early days and I am happy with the way things have worked out.

Q. Women have always inspired your designs. How do you know what women want?

A. So you basically want my secret (chuckles)… the thing is that women have so many layers and are very complex. Without being sexist, I think women are emotionally different from men. I have understood what makes women comfortable and what they want to look like. Again if there is one thing that’s the truth, it is that every woman wants to look beautiful and my designs stem from this idea. I try to make them look beautiful and not ridiculous or vulgar. I want women to look their best and the most graceful. So that’s my little secret and the motivating factor for my designs.

Q. You have designed and dressed some of the most famous women. Is there any one woman that you would like to design for in Nepal?

A. There are so many women. While I may not know many public figures in Nepal, there are many friends and family members who do buy and wear my stuff.
