The 2010 recipient of the prestigeous Ecco Domani Fashion Fund Award, Prabal Gurung’s designs have been worn by many celebrities:
1. Michele Obama (see red dress below)
2. Demi Moore (black dress)
3. Zoe Saldana
4. Oprah Winfrey
5. Taylor Swift (white dress)

Born in Singapore and raised in Kathmandu, Prabal cut his teeth into fashion design in Delhi, India. He studied at the New Delhiā€™s National Institute of Fashion Technology and worked with several famous Indian fashion designers like Manish Arora. Traveling through Australia and England and working with other stylists, Gurung accumulated more experience in this field. He finally ended up in New York, where he hit the big time. The break came when the First Lady Michele Obama wore a red dress that Prabal designed for which he received rave reviews.

Prabal lives in New York at this time and plans to travel back to Nepal for the 2011 Nepal tourism year. We wish more success to Prabal.
