Quote of Note | Prabal Gurung

“There is this print, which is the central theme of the collection, that I spent more than six months working on. It took lot of research and trial and error. The end result is something I am very proud of. There is this jacket in this print, and from afar it looks like any other blazer. But if you look at it closely every seam, every print matches to a T. I never thought it was humanly possible for me to achieve this—and call me dramatic if you will—but when I saw it finished I was in tears.”

-Fashion designer Prabal Gurung, whose print-heavy spring 2012 collection was inspired in part by Nobuyoshi Araki‘s 1997 “Sensual Flowers” series of photographs
