Prabal Gurung Catwalk Fashion Show New York Womenswear FW2014
Prabal Gurung payed a trip to his home in Nepal and visited a tiny place called Mustang in the Himalayas. He was caught by the traditional culture and serenity and translated that into his fall-collection.
The designer infused his lineup with a sense of ease beginning with beautiful melange knits — capes and trapeze shapes — elegantly bundled with scarves and crafty Mongolian lamb coats worn over draped chiffon skirts. Nepal provided more than inspiration — some of the cashmeres were produced there.
There was balance to everything, whether the fluidity and structure of tailored jackets and pants laced with draped satin panels, or the drama and softness of cocktail dresses and gowns embellished with mosaic crystals and ostrich feathers.
Done in warm colors, such as crimson and orange, the finale was romantic and racy.
