When I saw Naeem Khan’s new Fall 2015 collection, my first thought was that very piece was quintessentially Naeem, with his trademark embellishments etched strongly into every design. As it turns out, that was exactly what the designer had in mind. This season marked Khan’s 10th year at New York Fashion Week and the show was a celebration of his work over the last decade. It was also a tribute to the people behind the glamour – the hundreds of artisans in India as well as the fabric makers in Europe who have been an integral part of his work.
The collection, which borrowed design elements from his previous collections, consisted almost exclusively of evening wear and was rich with the exquisite beading, sequins, embroidery, and craftsmanship the designer is known for. There were quite a few looks I loved throughout the collection but the ivory and silver pieces shown toward the end of the show were phenomenal. With the Oscars just a few days away, it’s a given that one his gowns will definitely make an appearance on the red carpet. Stay tuned!
