Deep Purple [Prabal Gurung SS2012]: for

As an architect there was one massive reason I moved to the United States of America after college and that was to be like my idol architect Frank Gehry. I remember the first time I stepped into a building designed by him, I cried. Profusely. So image my excitement on getting my invite to one of my favorite fashion designer’s shows to be taking place in a Frank Gehry designed building. I really want this show to happen again just so that I can feel the pure pleasure I felt being in that moment again. Art everywhere. I can’t explain the immense impact the structure had on the collection either. The white translucency of the glass fa├žade on the white, purple and black collection, which also had a lot of shear, played perfectly well together. 

The orchid lips and the butterfly sunglasses are definitely the trade marks of this season’s collection. Prabal knows how to design in detail. Here are some of the glimpses from the show but I can bet they do not make up for the real experience.

Nicki Minaj in all her funk glory. Major love.

Taylor caught in action. I would love for her to read stories to my future kids with those expressions.

  4. I want to know more about your experience as an architect and your response to Gehry, but maybe this isn't the place. I love that you had such an experience though. Very intersting. I find his buildings a little less so, but to each his/her own.

  5. Frank Gehry is a really cool architect! I love Gaudi so much, and I think they have things in common! The pics are great! And can please someone send me this gorgeous black dress?? I'm in love with it!! :)

  6. That's some gorgeous clothing:D Nice post!
