This collection was absolutely breathtaking. I loved the soft, light fabrics and intricate beadwork that Khan is known for. I would LOVE to find an occasion to wear one of these gorgeous dresses.
Indian-born designer Naeem Khan founded his eponymous label in 2003, presenting his first collection at Olympus Fashion Week in 2005. His work is ornate, intricately detailed, and best known for red-carpet gowns employing handmade fabrics. The label is carried in more than 200 stores, including Neiman Marcus, Bergdorf Goodman, and Saks Fifth Avenue. Clients include: Padma Lakshmi, Beyoncé, Eva Longoria, Alicia Keys, Princess Aga Khan, Carrie Underwood, and Michelle Obama. “So much of Naeem’s success is being able to take his family’s background, with its knowledge of embroidery and beadwork, and use a light hand to get a very modern approach. His clothes are sexy, and still have a lovely romantic quality about them. You are the star when you wear the clothes.” Ken Downing, City Magazine.
