Prabal Gurung on Alber Elbaz

Prabal Gurung's Favorite Fashion Moment — "Alber Elbaz Said, 'I Know Who You Are!'"

When we heard that designer Prabal Gurung was going to make an appearance at Neiman Marcus in San Francisco, we didn't hesitate to run over there, even in our high heels! As expected, he was a delight — we sat on fancy chairs and chatted about everything from his beginnings to his dream collaborations to favorite holiday styling tips. But first, we must share Prabal's favorite fashion moment thus far: meeting Lanvin designer Alber Elbaz.

To hear what Prabal said about their first meeting,

Both attended the recent 2010 ACE Awards in NYC — where Alber was honored with a Designer of the Year award — and when Prabal went up to Alber to meet him, Alber said: "I know who you are." Prabal couldn't believe his ears. "Really?" he asked. He shared that that was a defining moment for him because he has looked up to Alber for so long. "It's a moment I will always cherish," Prabal says. He went on about how he admires the way Alber thinks of women, and, in fact, it's the same way he, himself, views women. When we brought up Lanvin's upcoming collaboration with H&M, Prabal couldn't be more thrilled: "It's one of the best fashion videos I've seen in a long time. It was very Alber to create something so tongue-in-cheek." If you haven't seen it yet, check it out below.
