Prabal Gurung is one of the fastest growing, hottest designers in fashion today. His label launched in February 2009 and has already garnered many accolades and collaborations with mega conglomerates. His designs aren’t absent from prominence either. First Lady Michelle Obama and the Duchess of Cambridge have been sporting his womenswear in recent years. Prabal was born in Singapore, raised in Kathmandu, Nepal and graduated from Parsons The New School for Design in New York. He spent his early career under Cynthia Rowley and then was appointed design director at Bill Blass before he launched his brand. Currently he designs womenswear with an abstract artistic touch that is quite unique. Distinct shapes and designs printed on fabrics ranging across the entire color spectrum is Prabal forte, while his collections remain entirely sophisticatedly modern and chic.
