Gurung was born in Singapore and raised in Kathmandu, Nepal. After beginning his design career in New Delhi, he moved to New York to finish his studies at Parsons The New School for Design. Upon graduating, Gurung spent two years with Cynthia Rowley’s design and production teams. Soon after, he was appointed design director at the iconic Bill Blass, a post he held for five years until launching his own collection, PRABAL GURUNG. A focus on quality and innovation has placed Gurung at the forefront of American fashion with designs worn by leading ladies including First Lady Michelle Obama and The Duchess of Cambridge, to name a few. Notable accolades include the 2010 Ecco Domani Fashion Fund Award, 2010 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund runner up, with various additional honors over the course of his career to present.

About Kelleigh Bannen & Colson Horton

Singer-songwriter and Nashville native Kelleigh Bannen knew music was her calling at an early age. While the Apple Music Country host spent years writing, performing and touring as an artist, she also found herself interested in exploring musical conversations with other artists, creatives and executives. In 2019, her self-created podcast "This Nashville Life" caught the attention of Apple Music who asked Bannen to join the music service as the host of banner playlist show Today's Country Radio and the first anchor host at "Apple Music Country". Bannen's compelling interview style and natural artistry help her to connect with artists in a meaningful and intimate way, allowing listeners around the globe a front row seat to these conversations.

A Gracie Award winner for Women in Media, multi-year Billboard Power Player, ACM and CMA Awards Nominee, Bannen has conducted noteworthy interviews with some of country's biggest names including Dolly Parton, Carrie Underwood, Luke Combs, Eric Church, Ashley McBryde, Miranda Lambert and Luke Bryan. She is equally passionate about her role in providing a platform for new artists, songwriters and creators. Bannen's in-depth interviews demonstrate the extensive time and attention she pours into album projects; analyzing the music, lyrics and collaborators.

Kelleigh continues to write and record music on her own in between her work for Apple Music on her self-titled daily radio show, “The Kelleigh Bannen Show,” and her weekly radio show “Today's Country Radio.”

"I am continually inspired by this music community," she says. "Nashville is bursting with talented vocalists, storytellers, and dreamers."
