Drawing inspiration from all over the world, Prabal Gurung is a designer of the global generation. His collection for Atelier Swarovski is full of bold colors and razor sharp lines: red, gold, silver, blue and jet black crystals create a powerful statement whilst the jagged, splintered shapes keep the pieces feeling fresh and modern.
“The collection was inspired by early 20th century cubist and futurist artists.”
— Prabal Gurung
Gurung was born in Singapore and raised in Kathmandu before moving to India to begin his fashion career. He studied first at New Delhi’s National Institute of Fashion Technology then spent years travelling the world before moving to New York where he continued his studies at Parsons School of Design and worked for designers including Donna Karan and Cynthia Rowley.
