Many of the world’s most stylish women are devotees to a new name in fashion: Naeem Khan. Committed to adorning elegant women in clothes befitting their refinement, his glittering fan base of starlets and socialites includes Beyonce, Eva Longoria, Penelope Cruz, Taylor Swift, Lea Michele and Queen Noor of Jordan, and his designs have graced the silver screen in fashion film classics like Dreamgirls and Sex and the City.
His luxurious collection consists of impeccably cut dresses, sophisticated gowns and chic cashmere separates – all embroidered by hand. Khan was born in India and grew up surrounded by design. He cultivated his vast knowledge of textiles under the watchful eyes of his grandfather and father, both well known in India for designing intricate clothing worn by the royal families. As a child, he was mesmerized by the handwork produced in their workshops, and always knew he wanted to be part of their intensely visual culture. As a teenager, Khan moved to the United States and apprenticed for Halston, where he absorbed the ethos of modern restraint, and the secrets of draping and cutting fabric to create a clean, elegant, timeless silhouette. Between the equally opulent but aesthetically opposite worlds of his father and Halston, Khan’s style was nurtured and his aesthetic was born. (bio via Facebook)
