NEW YORK (AP) — New York Fashion Week always has its share of memorable moments, the weird and the wonderful and everything in between. Here are some highlights of eight jam-packed days:
A CHANT OF GRATITUDE
To begin, a wonderful scene. Designer PRABAL GURUNG has done a lot to support his native country, Nepal, after the devastating earthquake hit in April. He began his show with the moving sight of 30 Buddhist monks chanting a prayer of gratitude for the fashion community’s help. Gurung then put on one of the more beautiful shows of the week, a tribute to Nepal in shades of yellow, saffron, peach and tea rose, with gorgeous embroidery. “All I wanted to do is show a little of where I’m from,” he said.
