The rumor mill: Prabal Gurung for Target?
Fashionista is reporting that Prabal Gurung is rumored to be the next Go International designer for Target. First, they noticed that among all the celebrities who attended Target’s fashion event at the Standard last month, Gurung was also seen on the red carpet. And since then, they've heard from two sources that Gurung is indeed Target’s newest guest designer. Their take is that Gurang's use of bold colors, sharp tailoring, and elegant cocktail dresses would translate well for the masses.
So who is this guy, anyway? Gurung is apparantly a rising design star (his first runway show was just last season) with just the right buzz to land a Target collaboration. He’s adored by editors and celebrities alike (including Michelle Obama and Oprah), he wins fashion awards, and hasn’t shied away fashion reality TV either (after making an appearance on The City this past June).
