Inspired from Stella?

The Singapore born sweetheart of American fashion, Prabal Gurung’s collection sent out a range of garments with violet florals, psychedelic prints and geometric cuts showing off the flesh. The fashion designer took inspiration from fetishistic work of Japanese photographer Nobuyoshi Araki. He explored the boudoir bringing out the ‘naughty’ in girls with floral dresses in violet, psychedelic prints, faded silk and tulle.

The designer worked on the fetish trend which was spearheaded by likes of Stella McCartney, Alexander McQueen, Marc Jacobs and Louis Vuitton last season.
On second thoughts, looks like the Prabal Gurung has clearly drawn inspiration from new trends & styles freshly seen at Stella McCartney’s runway last season.
Take a look at the comparison.
