Prabal Gurung

Fall 2011, NYFW

Starting your show with Karlie Kloss in a red off one shoulder prom dress is certainly a smart move; this is a model that people take note of when she walks. This dress is also sure to turn up on the red carpet at some point soon. As the show continued an array of textures were present; fur, chiffon and lace being the main fabrics used with the colour palette being largely black and white with pops of red.

Fur was used for coats, simply for sleeves and around necklines hopefully Gurung went the way of Karl Lagerfeld and used faux fur. Luxurious chiffon dresses, sheer blouses and cotton coats were held in with leather sashes whilst the models wore leather gloves, an all white outfit which consisted of soft white trousers and a fur waistcoat looked very innocent except for a leather mini harness around her upper half. A purple dipped dyed fur coat placed on the shoulders of a model dress in a black sheer floor skimming dress showed an interesting touch of glamour and gave the fur a hippie 70s feel (is that possible?).

The show closed on several more Oscar worthy dresses- a stunning pink dress with a spilt to the knee revealing black cut out tights and pink strappy sandals which sounds like a Barbie heaven but the high neckline and black leather accessories make this much most sophisticated. The last two dresses are feathered; one in black and one in white and both strapless.

Overall the show was glamorous and full of red carpet worthy garments, the hair was kept sleek on top and messy past the ears. Make-up was simple with strong elongated eyebrows. Shoes strappy and often the looks were paired with black bandage tights and used pinks and purples cleverly in order to not look too garish or Barbie doll.
