DHAKA: From Prabal Gurung’s futuristic Marilyn Monroe to Jill Stuart’s 1970s rock chick and sensual but modest Lacoste, designers unveiled a vast array of spring looks on Saturday in New York.
Singapore-born Gurung, whose creations have been worn by Kate Middleton, Michelle Obama and Oprah Winfrey, went to extremes to ‘preserve an elegant woman who is more and more rare’.
Gurung’s dresses and skirts fell mid-calf, some elegantly off-shoulder, in pastel pink, lavender, canary yellow, green or bold prints.
Lips were bright pink and tangerine while hair was slicked back.
Describing his collection as ‘femininity with a bite’ the designer, who launched his eponymous brand in 2009, said he pushed into the future using unusual fabric choices, reports The Straits Times.
