Prabal Gurung’s Fall 2010 presentation may have been in a small venue, but the talented designer who showed his first runway collection drew a big crowd.
This was my first sighting of Anna Wintour – who arrived with her daughter Bee – and Rachel Zoe who arrived with Brad who quite clearly has a huge fan base.
Every editor, buyer and high profile stylist like me eagerly awaited the first exit.
Coats were first presented with had cocoon shaped sleeves which were colour-blocked in black and white or camel and white.
I loved the mini dresses which will appeal to Zoe Saldana, Leighton Meester and the rest of the young Hollywood hip crowd.
Ruffles, folds and embellishments gave these looks a sweet feel, but the darker colours gave them an edge.
Demi Moore would love a mixture of the tweed dresses and the cigarette pants which were white or grey at the front and black at the back. Brad’s chin hit the floor in admiration as he mouthed “OMG” as one of these looks hit the runway.
I loved this collection, one of my favourite looks was the definitely the gold mini with the asymmetrical ruffle neckline. This has to have a red carpet moment.
After the show I met Prabal backstage who gave me a big hug and thanked me for speaking so highly of this work on my blog.
When he makes clothes this stunningly beautiful and well tailored, what’s not to love?
In this video you can see Anna Wintour in the front row.
The woman who started our love affair with Prabal Gurung took her seat in the front row.
She looked so cute with her knit dress and sexy thigh-high boots.
Let’s hope she was Oscar shopping. That crimson gown would look amazing on her.
