A quick description of what Prabal Gurung’s ready-to-wear collection offered during his show at the 2018 New York Fashion Week would be a bust of colour. Prabal’s previous show was a huge act of activism and when asked about this year’s show backstage, he explained that his palette and silhouette were inspired by female-dominated society, India’s activist Gulabi Ganga and the matriarchal Mosou Tribe of China. There’s a pleasing agony in the connection of these two groups of women and Gurung explained it using the colour pink as he tries to connect the strength of these women with being feminine.
As much as you would like to connect fashion to activism, we already know that you have to have the mind of a feminist before you wear an outfit that would evoke and awaken your activism. Clothes generally make you feel powerful but you have to embrace and embody them as a part of who you are, channeling your personality so that your outfit speaks before you do. Prabal Gurung’s new collection featuring colourful woven over-sized sweaters, velvet jumpsuits, sequin dresses combined with bows and faux fur brought wild femininity to the light.
