Prabal Gurung puts a spotlight on the world’s misfits

Prabal Gurung sent his New York Fashion Week models down a long, stark runway Saturday in the shadow of the United Nations wearing an explosion of sheers and colors as an ode to the misfits of the world. He called his misfits "my families, my tribes, my friends" whose rights are often taken advantage of. As a creative person, Gurung said, the pandemic has reaffirmed his need to tell stories rather than simply send clothes down a runway. (11 SEPT 2022)
