NEW YORK — After five years at Bill Blass, Prabal Gurung is launching a signature label with a fashion presentation Feb. 12 at the Flag Art Foundation here.
Undaunted by the recession and the recent shuttering of Blass, Gurung’s move to unveil his 15-piece collection publicly is self-funded. Gurung said he has been selling made-to-measure pieces to private clients for the past few years. He intends to sell his signature ready-to-wear to a few specialty stores domestically and abroad.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
