Prabal Gurung is known as feminist brand. For Gurung, feminism and female empowerment have always been core ideas since before the launch of his brand in 2009. Last year, in Prabal Gurung Fall 2017, models rocking T-shirts that read, This is what a feminist looks like; The future is female, etc. This year, Prabal Fall 2018 runway in New York in this collection continued to use feminism as his muse, but this time dominated colors, rather than words, to send a message. Models walked together holding white roses, that made the overdue and appropriate nod to #TimesUp.
Gigi and Bella Hadid made their runway debut in Prabal Gurung show. Gigi opened the show wearing a a patterned pink wrap, whiles Bella closed the show in a stunning strapless velvet gown.
Prabal Gurung Fall 2018 collection was all about colorful collection, pearls, variety of textures, from velvet to sequin. In Prabal Gurung show we also saw traditional long white skirts that were paired with bright, patterned and embellished tops; pencil skirt matched with a white sweater, which was embellished with a strapless floral bodice and fur sleeves. The collection is inspired by “female-dominated societies, by the women-led Mosuo tribe of China.
Prabal Gurung’s message is clear: Wear pink and purple as much as you can this fall/winter season!
