Prabal Gurung Spring 2012
For someone who's never really bought into the whole Gurung hype, even I have to admit that there was something strikingly beautiful about his Spring 2012 collection. Filled to the brim with sumptuous violet, the collection was notably futuristic, eye-catching and very, very chic. He didn't overwhelm us with colour choice, something most designers this week seem to have done, Gurung didn’t overwhelm us with his color choice; he was more interested in details, drawing from the work of Japanese photographer Nobuyoshi Araki.
The collection transformed from flirty into seductive reality before coming full circle with immaculate tulle silk gowns, all encompassing the empowering effect of romance.
I haven't bought into his hype just yet, but consider me definitely watching his next move.
