Runway Review: Prabal Gurung Spring 2011
Prabal Gurung's Spring 2011 collection brightened the runway and enlivened the crown on day three of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. This season Gurung focused on architectural constructions, geometric patterns and bold colors. The young designer, who premiered his collection only a year-and-a-half ago, is now considered one of fashion's most promising stars! Having previously dressed celebs like Leighton Meester and Demi Moore, Gurung became a household name when First Lady Michelle Obama was spotted looking radiant in one of his red dresses.
This season fans Rachel Zoe and Barbara Bush sat front row along with Poppy Delevigne, Maggie Betts, and Elle'sJoe Zee. They marveled at his latest looks, which were both sophisticated and sexy; hemlines hit just below the knee and sheaths were form fitting and flattering. With a striking palette dominated by turquoise, yellow and orange, its clear the future is bright for Gurung. ~Tania Sarraf
