Prabal Gurung S/S 2011

In a cascade of nude looks, one after the other, the aqua, yellow, and poppy red pieces really stood out. Prabal Gurung is a new favorite among both celebrities and high-fashion critics, and this collection proves that he has a right to be. Gorgeous patterns that were designed and cut to perfection showed off his design skills developed at Bill Blass. Similar colored fabrics were draped and layered over each other, creating unexpected texture on a monochromatic look.

Mesh was used throughout, inserted in sexy cutouts that still maintained their modestly. Asymmetrical draping and feminine curves looked sexy in a canary yellow dress.

Soft prints in red and white added depth to a solid collection, while layering and shreds of fabric created a modern fringe effect on cocktail dresses.

Sleek, modern with a touch of girlish charm, this designer is laying down the ground work for a long lasting career.
