Is Mr. Gurung *the* Designer to Watch? Prabal-y!

UPDATED below with photo . . .

This afternoon I watched Prabal Gurung's Fall 2012 fashion show via live stream.  One of my former students was photographing the event, and it was terrific to see him in action.

Gurung's show was a lovely display of living ombre: first the designer sent out models with the darkest hair, wearing black, then with brown hair wearing blues, and then gold-to platinum blondes wearing copper, gold, and white.

His final parade brought out all the models, which showed off the beautifully graduated tones of the clothes and hair.

My favorites: a black caped trouser suit that opened the show (and how I love the Philip Treacy for Prabal Gurung hat):

all of the light dresses (some of which had sparkly faux cut-outs at the waist) worn with gold Nicholas Kirkwood shoes:
The shoes sit on a sparkly platform

and this dark dress, with Kirkwoods in black:

My favorite audience member: the stunning Elettra Wiedemann,

whose natural beauty shone in her decidedly individual ensemble: a skinny white blazer over what I believe were these pants:

And here's the lovely photographic evidence:

That caped trouser suit is a *must*. And congrats to your former student. How wonderful it must have been to watch him shooting away in such an environment!

It was a real treat to see him at work, Shani. And he is not only talented but generous, as he reTweeted this post to the lovely Elettra (who graciously responded).
