Prabal Gurung’s eponymous line might still be fairly young, but that isn’t to say the label hasn’t already packed in a host of impressive achievements. From CFDA Womenswear Award Winner to dressing First Lady Michelle Obama, Prabal has built his brand on a style of dress that isn’t for the faint hearted. Here the designer speaks candidly in this week’s #MySelfie.
What is the trait you most admire about the fashion industry?
What is the trait you most deplore about the fashion industry?
The sometimes apparent ‘herd’ mentality – the incessant need to belong to a group and inability stand alone.
If you were to be reincarnated as a piece of clothing, what would you be and why?
The white T-shirt – it’s a wardrobe staple.
What was your most memorable fashion moment?
Meeting the 3 American Greats: Calvin, Ralph and Donna together in one room.
What is your style motto?
Sensual, subdued and spontaneous.
What were you thinking when you took this Selfie?
In this week’s ‘My Stuff’ we speak to Pernille Teisbaek, the Danish stylist whose blog, Look de Pernille, offers a glimpse into her daily life from a very fashionable perpective.
Days off are best spent with my….friends, family & dog, Wilma.
I’m travelling and I’m wearing my… Nike trainers and socks.
Shoots are the best when I bring my… awesome playlist, so we can boogie, while we work.
I get Monday morning inspiration from my… favourite local coffee shop, where I drink my daily cappuccino and watch a bunch of chic Danes entering a new week.
I keep it chic with my… red fingernails and gold rings.
Great escapes are always made with my… running shoes and a bikini in the bag.
