Never one to deny a fashion loving woman her glitz and glam for that special occasion, Naeem Khan once again delivered a full spectacle of lovely bedazzled frocks with his latest collection for spring/summer New York Fashion Week. The designer is always inspired by the female form, a woman’s natural curves, her athletic prowess, her confidence, and her ability to own the room. When it comes to lines and silhouettes, drape and color, lengths and styles–Khan leaves nothing out this time around. His latest collection is a visual candystore of diverse, wearable confections.
Khan’s color choices are never boring. Floor sweeping gowns in emerald green, 18k gold, scarlet red, dreamy ivory, and more, are delivered with many different variations from one-shoulder to strapless, cap sleeves and three-quarter. Dresses fit breezily while keeping the figure on full display behind silk organza, and layers of sheer mesh. Sharp, fitted blazers trimmed in silk lapels are paired with long evening wear, perfect for those ladies that balk at sleeves, opting for that editor’s style jacket look instead. Beadwork usually makes a memorable appearance in each Khan collection, and this one is no exception. The designer was inspired by the glamorous disco era of the late-70s/early-80s when he created his showstopping finale look–a crystal beaded white jumpsuit with a plunging neckline and matching little plume-feathered capelet. Talk about ending on a high note.
