Naeem Khan


Naeem Khan is a Mumbai born, American fashion designer to the Hollywood's biggest stars, after launching his fashion brand 'Naeem Khan' in 2003. His collections consist of exquisite cuts, beautiful hand-work embroidery, sophisticated gowns and chic separates. He grew up in India, being influenced by the culture, architecture, history and aesthetics of the hand embroidery capital. His talent and knowledge grew from the influence of his granddad and father, that are well known in India for their craftsmanship of clothing and intricate deigns that have been worn by the Royal Family.

Since his early days of success many of his collection pieces have been worn by the A-listers of Hollywood and powerful women such as, Beyonce, Eva Longoria, Penelope Cruz, Taylor Swift, First Lady Michelle Obama and Queen Noor of Jordan.

I love the way in which Khan works well with the placement of embroidery and print, the way in which he understands a women's body, allowing the fabric and cuts to elegantly drape beautifully. Below are some of my favourite pieces from his Autumn/Winter 2010 and Spring / Summer 2011 collection. -★
