The phrase “age is just a number” has never felt more accurate than at Naeem Khan’s fall 2019 show during New York Fashion Week.
The designer, an ApparelMagic client, let an intergenerational cast of beauties strut down the catwalk in some of the shiniest, sparkliest, and most feather-laden pieces of clothing this side of a Bob Mackie retrospective. And even more, Khan did it in the best taste imaginable.
Like disco dancers from the legendary 70s night club, every fluid movement of these women captured the light and energy in the room. From teenage models in the running to be this season’s it girls to women like Pat Cleveland who were really in attendance at some of history’s greatest parties, each woman looked strong, elegant, and very, very glam in her individual look.
These looks were not for the wall flowers. Dresses were dripping with metallic threads, spangled in sequins, flowing with fringe and feathers, and worn with very high slits and sheer panels. For believers in astrology, though Khan is a Taurus-Gemini cusp, his clothes are made for Leos, ready for the spotlight at a moment’s notice.
