Hey you, young gun designer: Want a tip on improving your NYFW GPA? Especially if you're going the un-airconditioned Hudson River pier route, we'd suggest you don't show Saturday opposite

Prabal Gurung Designer: Prabal Gurung

  • "He drew from a wide range of fabrics, including organza, tulle, silk and ostrich feathers, in gleaming white or vivid red, with frequent frilly details to create a particularly feminine look." {AFP}
  • "Prabal Gurung is proposing a little more freedom in a woman's wardrobe." {The Associated Press}
  • "Gurung installs a long, long runway that is enveloped with smoke at one end (but no mirrors--or only the ones backstage) and sends out layers of chiffon in varying lengths that echo, albeit with a certain sophistication, the long-in-the-back-short-in-the-front aesthetic every teenager seemed to embrace this summer." {The Cut}
  • " No matter what this designer does, it's dressy as hell, and polished in a signature downtown fashion." {Daily Front Row}
  • "Spring/summer shows are usually about showing more skin, not less. But for Prabal Gurung, his 2013 collection revolved around introducing an eastern silhouette to western women - which means covering up a little bit more." {

    The Daily Mail}

  • "While the detail and craftsmanship was indeed beautiful and a true testament to the designer’s talent, we can’t help but wish he’d consider the body, too." {FashionEtc}
  • "Prabal Gurung has created a youthful uptown image, but his summer collection featured everything from floaty clothes that might have come from his native Nepal to full-skirted and feathered prom dresses that looked like a parody of femininity." {International Herald Tribune}
  • "That Mr. Gurung’s layered silhouette resembled Riccardo Tisci’s recent men’s wear show is only one reason these clothes, however well made, instantly slid down a memory hole." {The New York Times}
  • "The silhouette ... was, he reports, borrowed from the traditional kurtas that his mother and sister wear at home in Nepal. But this was a bittersweet homecoming." {Style.com}
  • "These were absolutely clothes you could live in." {Vogue.com}
  • "The designer softened slightly, and emphasized a floaty, frillier side of his aesthetic, which was a welcomed adjustment." {Vogue.com UK}
  • "Helped solidify the edgy look he’s embracing while also emphasizing the kind of beautiful dresses that got him noticed in the first place." {WWD}
