Naeem Khan is the one to beat. Yes, I know it is not a competition but every collection he creates, tops the last one. Even as his collections continue to get more beautiful, more detailed and more elaborate, they are distinctly Naeem Khan.
Who is the Naeem Khan woman? She loves color, textures and fringe. She is bold and is immersed in luxury. She is confident, strong and fills her life with inspiration. Oh yeah, she only wears Christian Louboutins.

During New York Fashion Week, I had the privilege of sitting front row at the Naeem Khan Spring Summer 2018 show. From the front row you experience the clothing in an intimate way and take the best photos. I witnessed the movement of each tassel, the sparkle of each bead and the layers of lace appliques on each dress.
For months I have been watching the development of the collection. I am so thankful to Naeem Khan for giving his followers a glimpse into the design process. On Instagram he showed the lace construction of one of the dresses. To then sit at the show and actually see the dress in its entirety on the runway was definitely a fashion lover’s dream. I also witnessed Naeem manually design the fabric for the collection. He literally hand drew the print( See image below) and then turned it into a fabric. This is the true essence of fashion design.

My favorite look from the collection was a pink beaded jacket with collar details and matching mini dress. The pink color was more a hue and very feminine. I also loved the pink floral embroidered kimono with lace bustier and drawstring tuxedo pant. I am all about Kimonos right now so this was a look I would wear on one of my luxury getaways.
