Ok – spill it. Were you at Target yesterday for the launch of Prabal Gurung for Target? Were you able to snatch up anything? Of course I was there… and was happily surprised at the colorful array of items still available for purchase! Of course, of the 92 items available, my local Target probably had only around 10 items for sale! But who’s counting? (Ok – I was!)
“Prabal Gurung launched his eponymous collection in February 2009 with a philosophy encompassing modern luxury, indelible style and an astute sense of glamour.
Gurung was born in Singapore and raised in Kathmandu, Nepal. After beginning his design career in New Delhi he moved to New York to finish his studies at Parsons The New School for Design. Upon graduating, Gurung spent two years with Cynthia Rowley’s design and production teams. Soon after, he was appointed design director at the iconic Bill Blass, a post he held for five years until launching his own collection, PRABAL GURUNG.
A focus on quality and innovation has placed Gurung at the forefront of American fashion with designs worn by leading ladies including First Lady Michelle Obama and The Duchess of Cambridge, to name a few.“
