Congratulations, Prabal Gurung!

The designer is now a US citizen

We were so pleased to hear that Prabal Gurung has earned his stars and stripes to become a US citizen.

Given he took his citizenship test just 24 hours before his s/s 2014 show (which featured midi-length pencil skirts, 1950s bustier dresses and satin jackets) at New York Fashion Week, we’re also impressed – it’s no mean feat to plan a fashion spectacle and answer difficult questions about all things USA.


Singapore-born Prabal, whose designs have been worn by Michelle Obama, the Duchess of Cambridge and Diane Kruger, hinted at a potential celebration party to WWD – but for now, it's back to the drawing board, and his pre-fall collection.
