pg-mark2

What happens when a fashion designer has a distinctive taste of designs, a very creative mind, and a concise vision for their collections? The answer would be Prabal Gurung, making sensational ensembles every season for us to be amazed.

The Singapore-born fashion designer, who moved to New York in 1999, launched his brand, PRABAL GURUNG, during New York Fashion Week in February 2009. Since then, he has consistently impressed the fashion industry with his exquisite, yet elegant, print designs; stunning dress structures, and alluring fashion shows.

Hollywood celebrities, particularly actresses, wear Prabal Gurung with pride, and decorate the outfits with accessories to make it sparkle. This shows how established the brand has become over the six years it has been in the industry.

The type of aesthetic used are sustainable, yet high quality materials, so it can ensure the distinction of the collection that it has achieved, both visually and tangibly. My favourite collection has to be the S/S12 collection, that was showcased at the New York Fashion Week at Lincoln Centre, New York.

S/S12 Collection 

Not only is Gurung is aiming at the high-fashion/haute couture tier, but the brand has also aimed towards high street retailers. The designer has collaborated with Target in 2013. The floral- inspired collection consisted of a least 80 pieces, with prices ranging from $19.99 – $199. The fashion range, which was released on February that year, sold out almost completely in one day. To say that this collection was a success would be an understatement to say the least.
