First Lady Michelle Obama, Taylor Swift, Beyoncé: fashion designer Naeem Khan has outfitted these and many other modern-day style icons in his elegant, hand-embroidered gowns. Originally from India, Khan comes from a long line of designers — his father and grandfather created clothing for royals and dignitaries — and got his first industry job, an apprenticeship at Halston, when he was still a teen. Organza off-the-shoulder cocktail dresses, quilted trench coats, beaded ball gowns, and bridal dresses are just some of the luxurious designs you'll find in his collection, which also includes jeweled and embroidered cashmere sweaters and tops.
Naeem Khan specializes in gowns of stunning proportions, and this sale is full of them. Rich with beading, embroidery and curvy cuts, these are dresses for unforgettable events. Make an entrance in head-to-toe zebra-print chiffon or any one of these gem-encrusted goddess gowns. Just as glamorous are the embellished tops, tunics and sequined cocktail dresses. Famous for stealing the spotlight at social events, a Khan gown was the First Lady’s choice for a recent state dinner.
Whether poised for a summer gala or chic garden party, these brilliant, achingly stylish gowns are showstoppers, to be sure. Our Noir stylist picks for the season include an exquisite Marchesa Couture bow-front dress, beset with ombre fringe; a graphic technicolored floor-sweeper by Jonathan Saunders; and a wonderfully ornate minidress from Naeem Khan, glimmering with an all-over paving of mirrored jewels.
Fill your closet with a versatile mix of seriously stylish frocks.
