New York Fashion Week S/S 2016: A Somber Sunshine Meditation on Nepal at Prabal Gurung

There’s nothing we can tell you about Prabal Gurung‘s spring collection that comes near the one-page typed message the designer placed on each seat. So today along with our images from the runway we’re sharing the exact text from the Singapore-born Nepalese-American designer about the earthquake and flood in Nepal this last spring and what the region has meant for his life and work.

The show started like none other: with two minutes of chanted prayers from 24 monks in saffron and yellow robes—shades that were to be repeated amid black and white in the spare spaghetti-strap halter dresses, fringe and beading details, and softly draped architectural knits to come. On the runway, the hues and silhouettes read as sunshine, a sort of new dawn or rebirth. Later a remix of a Cure song faded into an especially melancholy version of the Ronettes’ “Be My Baby.”

Party Report: Jeffrey Fashion Cares at Art Beam in New York

Fashion loves a good cause—and a good runway show! Industry insiders flocked to Art Beam in Chelsea on April 6 to put up some coins for a good cause: this year’s Jeffrey Fashion Cares bash.

On behalf of Jeffrey Kalinsky, Nordstrom’s EVP of Designer, Zachary Quinto hosted a raucous live auction and men’s fashion show following a cocktail reception/silent auction. The auctions featured some pretty hot ticket items, including invitations to Elton John’s Oscar viewing party and a Paris Fashion Week package that includes front row tickets Dries Van Noten and Lanvin’s shows.

The runway show sampled from thirteen of the best in the business: Dries Van Noten, Lanvin, Raf, Baja East, Bobby Abley, Christopher Kane, Valentino, Loewe, Haider Ackermann, Ashish, Christopher Shannon, Saint Laurent, and Givenchy all lent menswear threads to the catwalk to help raise funds.

Who was there? Everyone was there—including Prabal Gurung, Narciso Rodriguez, Joseph Altuzarra, Carole Radziwill and Anna Wintour. Now in its twelfth year, the Jeffrey Fashion Cares team has raised over $5 million dollars for non-profits and charity organizations benefitting the LGBT community.

Street Report: Eva Outside Emporio Armani

Oh, Eva, you are too good to us! Not only is the amazing Eva Chen, editor in chief of Lucky magazine, incredibly stylish, but she is also the sweetest. It’s so refreshing to see a smile in the midst of the Fashion Week scene. Eva’s contemporary cable knit jumper is beyond covetable—I love the tonal palette and varied textures! A cool pair of cat-eye shades and strappy sandals with socks are fun and funky accessories to her cozy transitional look. Can’t wait to see what Eva has in store for us in Paris!

Hedvig Outside Prabal Gurung

Hedvig is one of the most chic and stylish bloggers around. I am a loyal follower of her blog, The Northern Light, thanks to her refined taste and understated glamour. As it was a scorcher today, Hedvig opted for a light and breezy maxi dress with a great print and vibrant color. Classic white sneakers are a huge trend right now, and they go with everything! Her minimalist Valentino bag adds a nice pop of contrast color. You look gorgeous, Hedvig!

Rumi Outside Prabal Gurung

Fashion blogger extraordinaire Miss Rumi Neely (Fashion Toast) stole the show today, thanks to her new puppy. She walked up with that fuzzy li’l pup and everyone lost their minds!

Of course, Rumi is also a fashion maven and looks stunning, even without the added draw of a cute baby animal. It was blazing hot today in NYC, so her understated whites were a great choice. It wouldn’t be Rumi without a little edge, and her textural clutch and platforms add just enough contrast to her look.

Street Report: Annie Outside Prabal Gurung

I have a total style crush on Annie Georgia Greenberg, a senior style editor at Refinery29. She loves to have fun with fashion—and during Fashion Week, a sense of humor is necessary! Today’s look has vintage appeal with some modern twists. I am obsessed with gingham, so this bold print is a standout. A bright coral lip and some retro mod clear shades cap off the look. Can’t wait to see what’s next for Annie!

Runway Rundown: Prabal Gurung

Notorious prankster Vitalii Sediuk streaked across the stage at the Prabal Gurung show this afternoon, but ultimately failed to steal the spotlight, which was firmly planted on the designer’s bold new collection. Gurung revealed a sleek, innovative offering for fall, replete with asymmetrical hemlines, nubby, oversized sweaters and rich, autumnal hues. We love the intricate beadwork in his eveningwear juxtaposed against soft, draped fabrics and unruly feathers.
