::: DAY 1 ::: PRABAL GURUNG

Hi Everyone,

You probably don’t know him and not even heard of his name, but evidently he is very popular between celebrities as well as Fashion Magazines…

Prabal Gurung was born on March 31, 1979 in Singapore to Nepalese parents and raised in Kathmandu, Nepal. Prabal began his designing career in New Delhi, India. While studying at New Delhi’s National Institute of Fashion Technology, he apprenticed at several local production and fashion houses and designed with Manish Arora. In Melbourne and London Gurung assisted stylists for fashion shows and international publications.

In 1999 Gurung moved to New York City, where he interned for Donna Karan while attending Parsons School of Design. In his first year he was awarded the “Best Designer” title at the annual Parsons/FIT design competition. After Parsons, Gurung spent two years with Cynthia Rowley’s design team. Soon after, he became the design director at Bill Blass. Following five successful years at Blass, Gurung launched his own collection, PRABAL GURUNG, during New York Fashion Week in February 2009 at the FLAG Art Foundation in Chelsea. For Fall 2010, he staged his first runway show in the Tents at Bryant Park.

A focus on quality and innovation has placed Gurung at the forefront of American fashion with designs worn by leading ladies including First Lady Michelle Obama and The Duchess of Cambridge, to name a few.

Gurung’s designs have been also worn by Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lawrence, Demi Moore, Emma Watson, Anne Hathaway, Amanda Seyfried, Sarah Jessica Parker, Kerry Washington, Kara Hayward, Diane Kruger, Elettra Wiedemann, January Jones, Kate Hudson, Marion Cotillard, Scarlett Johansson, Selena Gomez:

… and very recently in Golden Globe awards 2014 by Sandra Bullock and Zoe Saldana.

 In 2010 he was the recipient of the Ecco Domani Fashion Fund Award and received a nomination for the 2010 CFDA Swarovski Womenswear Award. He was also chosen by prominent fashion editors, retailers, designers and business people for the {CFDA Fashion Incubator} for 2010-2012. In November 2010, Gurung was awarded runner-up for the 2010 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund.

 Prabal Gurung launched his eponymous collection in February 2009 with a philosophy encompassing modern luxury, indelible style and an astute sense of glamour.
