Touched by the devastating earthquake in his native Nepal earlier this year, Gurung decided to use his fashion fame and social media following to urge for donations from the public.

On our minds is Prabal Gurung’s SS16 show, an addition to the cause-dedicated ones which seem to frequent NYFW this season. Touched by the devastating earthquake in his native Nepal earlier this year, Gurung decided to use his fashion fame and social media following to urge for donations from the public. With some large sums collected in support of the victims, the designer expressed his gratitude to the fashion industry which he means enabled him to help in such a large scale. His appreciation was reflected in the show which was opened by 30 praying Nepalese monks and the collection itself referenced the country’s colourful traditional dress with flowy, sensual garments in warm orange and yellow tones. View the collection in full here.
