Can a political statement ever be subtle? For Prabal Gurung, the answer is yes. The designer loudly displayed his democratic leanings early on during New York Fashion Week by designing a Hillary Clinton t-shirt for the ‘Made for History’ fashion show. In contrast, for his own SS’17 runway presentation on September 11th, he was more covert. Through understated embellishments, he used the show as a platform to honor inspiring women. Silk dresses came printed with tiny lilting script lifted from the speeches of prominent female figures and not-so-graphic tees featured significant quotes, one from Susan B. Anthony, in embroidered font with dripping black threads.

Nothing more…nothing less. #pgnyfw #nyfw #Spring2017 #cfdanyfw #pgworld

For those who don’t like to mix their wardrobe with their voting preferences, Prabal Gurung presented an elegant collection complete with separates that would be perfect for an edgy career woman and bias cut dresses for after work soirees. The designer’s palette moved from neutrals to bold monochromatic looks of cerulean, golden green, peach, and that seemingly ubiquitous, rust orange.
