NYFW: Prabal Gurung Fall 2012

Prabal Gurung Review

"Awe-Inspiring" - The first two words that came to mind as Prabal Gurung's Fall 2012 collection starting strutting it's way down the runway today.

The collection started off with heavy power dressing attire. Sleek, black ensembles, military style hats and long fur coats were soon followed by dresses with sheer fabric and petrol blue-y/green panels, pulled in with a patent leather waist belt. Then came a sort of, intergalactic twist on florals. Blue/black dresses with repeat pattern roses were given a dominating feel with long black leather gloves and were seriously striking to look at. It certainly gave florals a new lease of life, being a big hit for me personally.
If I thought I was enjoying the collection thus far however, it was nothing compared to how I would feel after witnessing the finale dresses. Lace and rose appliqué dresses, with ostrich feather skirts and trains were followed by 'Elvis white' on metallic gold gowns, and Swarovski studded show stoppers which seriously impressed onlookers - Anna Wintour, Bryanboy, Susiebubble and actress Zoe Saldana to name but a few - as well as myself.

The eclectic looks combined with fierce, insect style accessorising - bracelets, neck cuffs, cape pins and waist belts - make Prabal Gurung's Fall 2012 collection a top competitor in my list of NYFW 2012 favourites.

Here are my top three looks;

Personally, I felt that it was quite fitting that the collection showed on the anniversary of the legend that is Alexander McQueen, considering that some of the pieces from the Fall collection looked to be quite McQueen-esk in my opinion - especially the petrol blue, rose print dresses. What do you think?
