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.

During Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York, Naeem Khan delivered a richly detailed, heavily embellished collection for fall 2010. Our senses were filled with dazzling jewels, shimmering golds, and heavily sequined dresses reflecting the light around the models as they sauntered down the runway to a rock and roll soundtrack. The collection was heavy with elegant brocades, fur trimmed motorcycle vests, and feathered skirts. With Michelle Obama wearing his gowns, we can imagine we will be seeing a quite a bit more of Mr. Khan. Photos and video by Stevyn Llewellyn.
