In Prabal Gurung‘s fall runway show, there were a total of 39 looks. Surprisingly, there was a streaker at Prabal Gurung’s fall runway show. It is rare, especially in New York City. The streaker wore a gold crown, a black trench, and very little else. He came out, and then skipped off the catwalk very quickly.

This time Gurung’s collection reflected more fully on his Nepalese heritage more than he did in the past. He always travels every year back home to get some inspiration from the ordinary citizens. In his most recent visit, Gurung was greatly impacted. He saw glorious portraits of ordinary citizens in extraordinary clothes. Also, he saw a few abstract paintings by artist Cecily Brown.

Later, Gurung brought all these great ideas, and presented his cozy and colorful collection. Some of the looks were chunky turtleneck sweaters, thick scarves, chiffon micro skirts, strappy, and embellished heels.

This model had fabrics wrapped around her body. It was extended from a cut-out blazer through which a luxe scarf was threaded to sexy, shoulder-baring tops; one of which was embroidered, so that it almost looked as if marigold necklaces had been wound around the model’s torso. Other models, wore cocktail dresses.

It caught the attention of the audiences. Gurung was inspired by this season, particularly with his trademark notions of sport, and a party-ready feathered skirt.
