Rock chicks and futuristic chic hit NY fashion week
NEW YORK (AFP) - From Prabal Gurung's futuristic Marilyn Monroe to Jill Stuart's 1970s rock chick and sensual but modest Lacoste, designers unveiled a vast array of spring looks on Saturday in New York.
Singapore-born Gurung - whose creations have been worn by Kate Middleton, Michelle Obama and Oprah Winfrey - went to extremes to "preserve an elegant woman who is more and more rare."
Gurung's dresses and skirts fell mid-calf, some elegantly off-shoulder, in pastel pink, lavender, canary yellow, green or bold prints. Lips were bright pink and tangerine while hair was slicked back.
Describing his collection as "femininity with a bite" the designer - who launched his eponymous brand in 2009 - said he pushed into the future using unusual fabric choices.
