8 Things We Loved about Prabal Gurung Spring 2016 at NYFW

Prabal Gurung’s Spring Summer 2016 show at New York Fashion Week started with chants performed by Buddhist monks. The Nepal-raised designer set up a relief fund earlier this year for the Nepal earthquake that killed nearly 9000 people in April.

And then one by one, models walked down the ramp in a collection that as a whole was a tribute to Nepal. Prabal Gurung’s inspiration clearly showing through the silhouettes. The color palette included light shades like white, pale yellow, saffron, pale pinks and peach – colors that remind you of Buddhist monasteries in Nepal.

The fabrics were a mostly flowy sheers and a mix of some satin silks, knits and shimmer. Some had water-color-like brush strokes by a Nepalese artist. Some had sequins and some threadwork The silhouettes were beautiful- fit for a breezy Spring-Summer day! The tops included sheer pussybow blouses and off-shoulder tops, some with half sleeves with conservative necklines and some sleeveless with daring deep-cut V-necks ending just above the navel. Dresses were calf to floor length, some with a hint of fringe and a mix of thigh-high slits on midi-skirts.

Art, But Not Too Much!
