Prabal Gurung’s Fashion Week Diary


In the lead-up to New York fashion week, designers go through hundreds of behind-the-scenes preparations to arrive at the completed show. This NYFW, we’ve sweet-talked a few of them into giving us an exclusive peek behind the curtain as they cast, score, style, and ready their presentations. Next up: Prabal Gurung.

“It’s all about the details—the perfect draping and fit is crucial to each and every piece. I had [patternmaker] Nicolas Caito come in and work his brilliance. And the blush pink color of this dress…well, kind of makes me blush!”

“After I saw Didier’s [hairstylist Didier Malige] vision come to life on our muse, McCallan, it was time to regroup over some healthy eats with my stylist, Tiina Laakkonen. This past weekend I was able to really visualize all of the show elements coming together. Excitement ensued.”

“Nothing like a stellar shoe to really pull the look together. Here we are adding our PG touch to this season’s Nicholas Kirkwood shoes by working in some leather straps. Who wouldn’t develop a fast foot fetish from these heels?!”

“I love this combination of fabrics and how it looks like the ivory is flourishing. It almost appeals to all of your senses.”
