WHAT WE THOUGHT: The show began with a soulful rendition of "Addicted to Love" by Florence and the Machine and a perfectly tousled Karlie Kloss sashaying down the runway in a crimson-colored off-the-shoulder silk faille dress. From there, the love parade went on to include long silk georgette skirts cut on the bias, floating chiffon gowns, and even tulle blouses and frocks adorned with silk organza flowers and itty-bitty leather bows.
One could envision a rich recluse like the aforementioned Charles Dickens character swanning about in one of these creations, topped with any of the decadent ombré-dyed fox fur that Gurung showed today. The heartfelt use of colors, ranging from red to hot pink to blush to fuchsia, felt like the designer's own personal valentine to the charmed audience.
