Relieved to be stepping inside during yesterday’s random downpour, we were delighted to find Frida Gustavsson sitting in hair and make-up backstage at Prabal Gurung. “It’s my only show of the day” she said, a rarity for a model in such high-demand. Eager to reminisce about her summer, Frida shared stories of the couture shoot she did with one of her favorite photographers, Paolo Roversi, for Vogue Italia. “I love working with Paolo and it was amazing to wear all the couture. I really liked this one by Valentino with these beautiful sleeves,” she told us while miming a tightly encompassing sleeve moving up her arm. Continuing on the subject of arm candy, we passed along one of our Swedish flag bracelets designed with nOir Jewelry that she couldn’t wait to wrap around her wrist. “Do you have one for Poland!? I want to give one to Jac!” she said while digging through our bag for a bracelet of red and white.

Making our way to the front of the house we bumped into Elettra Wiedemann wearing the USA version of our bracelet and an incredible pair of pants by Prabal Gurung. “I’ve been friends with Prabal for years now so I like to make sure I go to his shows but aside from this I’ll probably be spending most of [Fashion Week] up at Goodness,” she told us of her Fashion Week plans before posing for a mob of photographers dying to get a shot of the supermodel beauty queen.
Pushing through the crowd, we made it to our seat just as Caroline Brasch Nielsen opened the show in a sheer dress decorated with a watercolor-esque purple pattern. The show list consisted of a whopping thirty-eight models such as Alana Zimmer, Hanne Gaby Odiele, Jourdan Dunn, Karlie Kloss, Magdalena Frackowiak, Jacquelyn Jablonski, Lindsey Wixson, Arizona Muse and obviously, Frida Gustavsson who closed the show wearing a floor length gown with tulle detailing.
Combining edgy silhouettes with feminine fabrics like silk, feathers and tulle, this collection was breathtaking – easily one of Prabal’s best yet.
