Top NYC designer laughs off streaker, showcases Nepal

Top NYC designer laughs off streaker, showcases NepalOne of New York’s top designers has thrust Nepal onto the map of high fashion, unveiling one of the most exciting catwalk shows of the season, inspired by his Himalayan homeland. Award-winning designer Prabal Gurung unveiled his fall/winter 2014 season in the cavernous recesses of New York’s Moynihan Station on Saturday, watched by a packed house led by style queen Anna Wintour. But Gurung, who formed his eponymous label in February 2009 after studying in India and New York, laughed it off. He travels back to Nepal once a year and loves to trek in the Himalayas, often just with a porter for company to recharge his batteries from the chaos of the jet-set life.
