Since launching his label in 2009, Prabal Gurung has enjoyed five seasons as part of the Swarovski Collective, where he has experimented with innovative fabrics and applying new design techniques to current silhouettes. Widely recognized for his intricate crystal embellishment that has featured heavily on both the catwalk and red carpet, Gurung’s aesthetic incorporates elements of sportswear combined with couture details.
AW 2015 COLLECTION
Inspired by the "explosive" colors of fall in the Adirondacks, Prabal Gurung's Fall/Winter 2015 collection was a study in modern simplicity, merging soft neutrals and bold reds. Long shimmering dresses beautifully emebellished with Swarovski crystals were worthy of the red carpet.
SS 2015 COLLECTION
Soothing colors, fluttering feathers, flowing fabrics and exquisitely embellished crystals, Prabal Gurung's collection played on the concept of movement and femininity with a hint of edginess.
AW 2014 COLLECTION
Drawing inspiration from a recent trip to Nepal, Prabal Gurung showed a collection that paid homage to his roots. The red carpet favorite made liberal use of rich crimson hues and embroidered fabrics. Gurung closed his show with a procession of models in banded, satin gowns of crimson and navy, embellished with Swarovski crystal.
SS 2014 COLLECTION
Prabal Gurung’s Spring/Summer 2014 collection is a celebration of the archetypal elegant woman in a modern context. Pastels and acid brights feature while silk evening gowns are adorned with Swarovski crystal rosettes and exposed crystal embroidered corsetry.
AW 2013 COLLECTION
“Swarovski have been so instrumental in the growth of emerging talent and are of course extremely generous in their support for more established brands as well. Their generosity extends beyond the product as they continue to find innovative ways to implement new initiatives and stay relevant within the industry and beyond.” – Prabal Gurung
AW 2011 COLLECTION
“This season draws from the romantic styles seen throughout the Victorian times with a slightly savage, street-wise edge. The Swarovski crystals add to the richness of the collection and help create the juxtaposition between precious and casual couture.” -Prabal Gurung
SS 2011 COLLECTION
Tribal-influenced luxury pieces were complemented by a bold colour palette at Prabal Gurung. This season, Swarovski elements added texture and richness to the intricate detailing seen throughout the collection.
AW 2010 COLLECTION
“The overall focus this season is on beautiful silhouettes that are electrified with Swarovski fractured crystals and beaded embroidery that toughen and empower each piece while maintaining a classic and timeless appeal.” – Prabal Gurung
