Naeem Khan - New York Fall 2009
(NEW YORK) Naeem Khan opted to show his Fall collection with a presentation for the first time in several seasons, which allowed his devoted following to admire the breathtaking handiwork even more closely. Khan unveiled approximately 20 looks at his soaring Garment District loft with two separate tableaus. The first group presented a nod to Indian opulence, offering up fur-trimmed brocade coats and embroidered velvet dresses that take the notion of luxury, well, up a notch. The second group of heartstopping evening gowns reminded more than one seasoned editor of why women near and far are lining up to pay handsomely for such unusual, memorable pieces. A crystal-heavy column appeared to have been born on the red carpet--nay, the stage itself--while a pale pink tiered gown will surely dominate A-list events around the globe. Khan worships his customer, and judging by the socialite-studded cocktail party that followed his presentation, the feeling is mutual.
