American-Nepalese fashion designer Prabal Gurung presented a colourful collection for Fall Winter 2018, inspired by powerful women from Gurung’s home country Nepal along with women-centric groups like India’s Gulabi Gang and the Mosuo tribe of China. Pink, as it turns out, is a common color shared amongst these cultures.
There was a series of lush cashmere and wool knits with feather and sequin detailing, as well as velvet finishes, pearl embellishments and quilted puffer jackets. Prabal Gurung is known for staging socially-charged runway shows in the past and this time, it was no different. The diverse cast of models walked the runway side by side, holding white flowers, with some linking arms. The moment drove home the designer’s message that women are stronger together, and stronger in color. See the full lineup below.
