New York based designer Prabal Gurung is taking his first step into footwear with a collection of six new designs which will accompany his Spring/Summer 2015 offering. Opening up on his approach to the new footwear collection, Prabal reveals that he did a lot of research before creating the new pieces, and asked many people established in the industry for some advice. He explained: "I asked some of my biggest mentors: Carolina Herrera, Caroline Brown [Donna Karan’s incoming CEO] and Anna Wintour. I reached out to retailers, and I talked to Nicholas [Kirkwood]. I wanted to make sure I had an understanding of what I was getting into. It was extremely important that I get feedback. I wanted to be luxury, but at a smart price point."

The educational process opened his eyes to see that shoe design is a "different ball game" to clothing creation and people react differently to shoes: "It felt like I was going back to school. It’s a whole different ball game. It is one product where functionality and the design aesthetic truly need to meet. And shoes need [to evoke] an orgasmic reaction."

Prabal is excited about the label's expansion and is also hoping to venture further in to accessories with bags and other leather pieces in the future. He's hoping to create a whole global brand: "We definitely want to get into handbags and small leather goods. The most exciting time is now, and the next ten to 15 years are going to be everything I’ve dreamt about: [crafting] a brand that can be global."
