Best New Designer Of 2009 – Prabal Gurung

Posted by Catherine Kallon Comments

This time last year not many knew of Prabal Gurung.

The designer must have known he made it when he appeared on the front cover of WWD during fashion week back in February, but the rest of us were yet to catch up.

In April Zoe Saldana should be credited for being the first to bring Prabal Gurung to the red carpet.

It her defining moment of the year, and no doubt it was Prabal’s too.

The celebrity love didn’t stop there.

Demi Moore and Rachel Weisz gave their seal of approval at the same Cartier 100th Anniversary event, whilst Becki Newton gave us a twirl in a stunning ruffled bib confection.

After being invited to the designers Spring 2010 presentation during New York Fashion Week, I knew this collection would be just as popular on the red carpet, and I was right.

New girl on the block Carey Mulligan was the first to wear the Spring 2010 collection, followed by Demi Moore, Leighton Meester and Thandie Newton.

Stylish CNN reporter Alina Cho opted for the same feathered Fall 2009 dress as Demi Moore, whilst Ashley Greene ended Prabal’s year as Zoe had started it – wearing a stunning red dress.

All this love in only his second season proves what a talented designer Prabal Gurung is.
