NEW YORK (AFP) - One of New York's top designers has thrust Nepal onto the map of high fashion, unveiling one of the most exciting catwalk shows of the season, inspired by his Himalayan homeland.

Award-winning designer Prabal Gurung unveiled his fall/winter 2014 season in the cavernous recesses of New York's Moynihan Station on Saturday, watched by a packed house led by style queen Anna Wintour.

Within minutes, a male streaker wearing a raincoat, gold crown, red socks and leopard print thong dashed across the catwalk and dropped to his knees.

A model stalked past him and he flashed his backside and racy thong as usually uber-serious fashionistas cracked into a few titters and security rushed to usher him out.
