Charity Begins at Home - Prabal Gurung SS16

Prabal Gurung's Spring/Summer 2016 show began with a procession of thirty monks chanting in unison in a mark of respect for the victims and survivors of the earthquake which struck the Nepalese designer's homeland in April this year. The ensuing show line-up courtesy of Piergiorgio Del Moro casting combined the essential ingredients of the element of surprise, fresh new talent, industry veterans and diversity, to create a stunning display of showmanship which enthralled all in attendance from start to finish. Dutch ingenue Jamilla Hoogenboom opened proceedings, signalling a discernible shift in the modelling paradigm with fellow newcomers NY native Olivia Jansing, Romy Schonberger, Lauren Van der Graaf, Irina Djuranovic, Julia Fleming, Jessica Burley, Willow Hand, and the Pavlova twins Lia and Odette residing over proceedings. Never one to veer towards the banal, Del Moro ensured there was diversity aplenty with coloured models Aya Jones, Amilna Estevao. Issa Lish, Leila Nda, Yumi Lambert, and model of the moment Lineisy Montero all representing. Industry veterans Kirstin Owen, Liisa Winkler, Missy Rayder and Maggie Rizer wore Gurung's Nepalese-inspired collection with the all of the aplomb and authority that comes with having lived and learned. Interspersed in between were fashion's current obsessions, Amanda Murphy, Vanessa Moody, Sophia Ahrens, Julia Van Os, and comeback kid Zuzu Tadeushuk.
