Prabal, who has dressed the Duchess of Cambridge and Michelle Obama, will be unveiling the six new styles as part of his ready-to-wear catwalk show at New York Fashion Week.

The Nepalese American designer also gave fans a sneak peek at one of the designs called the Cecily Pump, a black colour-blocked stiletto with snakeskin detail.

Off the catwalk, Prabal recently announced that he would be collaborating on a beauty range with MAC Cosmetics.

"Creating this line has certainly been emotional for me," he said. "I think back to the beauty products on my mother's vanity that I saw growing up and how much they resonated with me. It's pretty incredible to be in a position to now be developing my own."

With celebrities such as Jennifer Lawrence, Scarlett Johansson and Marion Cotillard all repeatedly wearing his designs on the red carpet, the young designer admitted that he didn't have a specific muse.

"I've always been interested in intelligent, beautiful women who are aware of the space they occupy," he revealed. "And the relationship they have with fashion and the world, not just herself."
