Gurung, who was born in Singapore, grow up in Nepal and studied fashion in New Delhi, had previous spoken of his desire to dress President Obama's wife, describing her as his ideal.

"Michelle Obama has brought an huge sense of glamour back to the White House with her keen fashion sense and by the way she wears clothing with confidence. I am proud to describe her our First Lady. To me, she is the perfect PG woman," the designer had earlier said.
The 46-year-old first lady is known to prefer young designers over recognized high-couture names, choosing Jason Wu, a little-known designer who grew up in Taiwan, to design her inaugural ball gown. The flowing, white, one-shouldered gown studded with applique embroidery, a huge ring, along with peep-toe white Jimmy Choo high heels, thin diamond bracelets and dangling earrings joined the Museum of American History's collection of First Ladies' dresses on Wednesday.
