A model hits the New York runway in Gurung’s spring gown. 

(Photo:prom dress shops)His spring/summer 2016 edition, one of the highlights on day four of fashion week, opened with meditative chants from 30 barefoot monks dressed in red robes. It closed with a version of Be My Baby — a song Gurung said he had loved since watching hit movie Dirty Dancing. In between was a stunning show in classic Gurung style: timeless yet effortlessly modern clothes drawn from a palette of saffron, vermilion, orange, blush, black and white in beautifully cut, floaty fabrics.

“Everything I did today was very, very personal; I kind of laid my heart out there, so we’ll see,” he said backstage after the show.

Gurung showed off a mesmerising orange sequined dress, delicate form-fitting knits in orange and yellow stripes and plenty of fringing — a key look on the New York catwalks this season. To finish, he revealed sequined evening dresses and billowing orange and yellow evening gowns with full skirts falling in soft folds.

The Nepal-raised designer, who dresses first lady Michelle Obama and Britain’s Duchess of Cambridge, was almost in tears backstage as he recalled the the 7.8-magnitude quake that killed nearly 8900 people and reduced some 600,000 houses to rubble across the impoverished nation.

“The minute it happened, I reached out to my friends and I was like I needed to do something. I was going insane because I felt so helpless, just to see my own identity kind of crumbling,” he said. He set up a relief fund, raising more than $US1 million ($1.4m).

Victoria Beckham also showed yesterday, describing her collection as a homage to her “carefree attitude.” Bohemian flowing tops, skirts and dresses ruled the runway in knits, silk, leather and suede. A gingham pattern appeared on everything from jackets to skirts to dresses.

And this time, no signature sky-high stilettos, but rather flats, kitten heels and sandals.Read more at:graduation gowns
