Piergiorgio del Moro for Prabal Gurung
Piergiorgio del Moro cast the SS 2016 Prabal Gurung show at NYFW! In addition to the models cast by Peirgiorgio that walked the runway, Gurung opened his show with 30 Buddhist monks, which you can watch here. The monks who had traveled from Nepal to New York to chant a prayer of gratitude for the world's help during the earthquake that killed thousands in Gurung's native Nepal in April.
"When the earthquake happened, the first people that came to our rescue in Nepal was the fashion industry here, and I wanted to show some kind of gratitude to them," Gurung said after Sunday evening's show. "I go and visit the monastery (in Nepal) all the time, and I had this idea, and they wanted to do it."
The entire runway show was dedicated to Nepal, with garments in shades of lemon, saffron, peach, tea rose and other variations of orange and yellow. There was barely a dark color in the mix. Especially effective were lovely white dresses embroidered in orange and yellow, and filmy chiffon evening gowns that floated down the runway. (via Business Insider)
