Prabal Gurung will release a collection with Lane Bryant

Prabal Gurung is set to launch a new collection with Lane Bryant.

The 37-year-old fashion designer has collaborated with the retail company and will unveil a new plus-size clothing range with the brand in March 2017, and has admitted his inspiration to design the forthcoming capsule was to allow all females to feel their "absolute best".

Speaking about the upcoming capsule, the creative mastermind said: "Designing clothes for the modern woman, one who is fashionable and unafraid of how she feels about herself, has always been my source for inspiration.

"I truly believe that confidence is the key, and I continually strive to create clothing that allows women to look and feel their absolute best."

And the CEO of Lane Bryant, Linda Healey, has revealed the brand is equally as excited for the clothing line, which will be their fifth designer partnership, to hit stores.

Speaking about the partnership, Linda said: "We are delighted to welcome him to Lane Bryant and offer his innovative fashions, spirit and unique styles to the Lane Bryant customer."

Meanwhile, Linda has praised Prabal for his skill as an artisan and building a successful designer brand.

Speaking about Prabal - who launched his eponymous clothing label during New York fashion week in February 2009 at the FLAG Art Foundation in Chelsea - she said: "Prabal is a master at mixing materials, fabrics and textures - he pulls it off in such a way that each piece becomes its own artistic statement. His ingenuity at mixing sporty ease with unabashed glamour has made his label a huge success."
