Prabal Gurung producing T-shirts

Prabal Gurung will venture into casualwear.

The couture designer, whose gowns have been donned by American First Lady Michelle Obama and actress Zoe Saldana, has announced that he will be making T-shirts.

Prabal is looking to expand his line in 2012 as he wants his designs to be more accessible.

"SP12 production fittings. Hope u guys luv these T shirts we r doing the 1st time as much as I do (sic)," the designer posted on his Tumblr account along with a picture of one of his creations.

The T-shirt range is part of Prabal's spring collection. The garments will reach retailers in March and sell for $200 to $300 each.

Prabal is relatively new on the scene, first showing in New York in 2009. He's won scores of famous fans since then, and is now a member of the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA).

His critically acclaimed Spring/Summer 12 Resort collection debuted at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in New York City last September.
