By Mumbai Mirror: Bith Priyanka Chopra and Isha Ambani wore Nepalese-American fashion designer Prabal Gurung to the Met Gala this year. Last year, Deepika Padukone wore a trail gown by Gurung, who is one of New York’s leading names in fashion, ever since Michelle Obama wore one of his dresses and put him on the international map.
But, Gurung’s popularity with India stars goes beyond his immense talent. We hear he is in a steady relationship with a leading Indian filmmaker. Very few of the film maker’s friends know this, as he guards his privacy fiercely. But Gurung is openly gay and a supporter of LGBTQ rights. A Washington Post article even dubbed him ‘The most woke man in fashion’.
Gurung, 39, born in Singapore and grew up in Nepal with two siblings and single mum. He moved to New York 20 years ago, and was always politically engaged. Meanwhile, we can’t wait to see more of him in Mumbai.
