Putting on the Glitz at Naeem Khan
by Ian Laughead
This awards season, expect more glitz and glamor than ever. As one of Hollywood’s favorite brands, ApparelMagic client Naeem Khan took to the runway at New York Fashion Week with a collection heavy on crystal, tinsel, and everything that shines.
Starting off the show on a high note, the first model made her way down a premiere-worthy red carpet in a louche set of black silk pajamas with thick stripes of crystals worn over lacy lingerie. The next look was an equally stunning robe coat embroidered from collar to hem with metallic gold thread. Both looks, while updated with a maximal, showgirl style, harkened back to Faye Dunaway’s iconic silk-robe-attired portrait at the Beverly Hills Hotel after her 1977 Oscar win.
The extensive detailing was not limited to only the pajama dressing styles, but further applied to a suite of coats, dresses, and over-the-knee boots in graphic jumbo florals. Too much was just enough when Khan layered those florals with oversize leopard print and spliced it with beading, purple rick-rack, and sheer insets. Showpieces galore.
Other, more paired down pieces made just as much effect though, with a dress for every type of embellishment and style, including a feather column, a gold-scaled sweetheart neckline number, another patterned with petals, and classic red chiffon drapes.
Tailor made to make an impression in the paparazzi’s flashbulbs, we can expect Hollywood’s best—and brightest—starlets to take a spin in Khan’s frocks down the red carpet.
