NEW YORK (AP) — Prabal Gurung had a lot to say at New York Fashion Week, and he said it in living color.
The designer sent models from 35 countries around the globe down his runway Sunday, chosen to represent a world where “all humanity reigns.” Because, as Bruce Springsteen said in Gurung’s closing song, we can “Dream Baby Dream.”
Until then, we can imagine living in Gurung’s festive utopia beneath his rainbow of Buddhist prayer flags hanging from the ceiling center stage. And we can take a hint printed on seat assignment cards left for his guests: “I am a voter.”
And, for the first time, we can revel in his first menswear collection. Among his men was Anwar Hadid, joined in the show by his supermodel sisters, Gigi and Bella.
