Naeem Khan Spring 2012

The evening wear Maestro, Naeem Khan never fails to delight, dazzle, and surprise. The inspiration for his spring 2012 collection was actress Ava Gardner in The Barefoot Contessa, and costume designer Edith Head. Richly embellished detailed gowns, and vibrant hues of yellow, lilac and bright pink mesmerized us as the models walked down a mirrored runway, emerging as if from a desert mirage. Metallic fabrics and embroideries were used masterfully. More restrained from his fall 2010 collection, we are witnessing a style that is distinctively that of Mr. Khan’s.
