New York Fashion Week Spring 2011: Prabal Gurung

Sharing is caring!

Designer: Prabal Gurung

Inspiration: Minimal, futuristic look

Top Trends: bright color ensembles (bold yellow, oranges, and blues), 5 inches below the knee dresses and skirts, sexy cuts, narrow cocktail dress, opaque against sheer pieces, pencil skirts

My Thoughts: When I saw the opening look, I knew it was gonna be a good show. I just love the bright colors. I’m digging the futuristic glam and the cuts are true perfection. The collection was made for a strong and feminine woman who wants to show off her sexy side. He definitely experimented for spring and the end result…. fabulous! No wonder First Lady Michelle Obama is a fan.

Makeup: “Futuristic. That was my interpretation of Prabal Gurung’s world, and he accepted it, ” said lead makeup artist Tom Pecheux. Models had a clean face with a matte finish. To give a hint of shimmer to the eyes, Tom Pecheux used lots of pure white pigments- white liner and white eyeshadow.

Hair: A deep side part in the front for a sleek ponytail in the back. A silver barette was also used on the ponytail.

Nails: Jin Soon Choi created “line art” for the models using Sally Hansen’s nail polish for a simpler version of a moon manicure.
