Prabal Gurung once described his ideal customer as “a thinking man’s sex symbol.  A beautiful woman with brains, a lethal combination.”  Here again he presents a highly polished New York Fashion Week collection for precisely the women he worships – goddess like, bold in colour and rich in layers and texture.

This season is directly inspired by Nepal, and the richly mythical and legendary culture it celebrates.  Sari-like cloth sat swathed around the sensual elements of the female body; the neck, waist and hip.  Feather and fur, silk and muslin-type fabrics were synonymous with the inspiration behind AW14/15.
