NYFW: Naeem Khan Spring 2014 Fashion Show
The Naeem Khan spring 2014 fashion show was by far my favorite. Naeem Khan brought drama, elegance, and sheer beauty to the runway. He was inspired by Latin culture and I specifically loved the way he incorporated the Spanish rose into his collection. I attended the show as KIS Group's fashion correspondent and I can now truly appreciate when people say, "Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life."
Naeem Khan's beaded looks were beyond beautiful. From my incredible third row seat, I could actually hear the fabrics move on the runway. One of my favorite looks was an iridescent white beaded dress that gave the appearance of having floating sleeves since the beading was sewn onto nude mesh.
The color palette for the collection was primarily white, red, and black, but Naeem Khan did throw in a few pieces covered in vibrant pinks, greens, and oranges. I did not understand those pieces' placement in the overall collection until I saw that they were inspired by Mexican tile prints. I loved the exquisite beaded detailing of birds and deer on the top shown below. The models' hairstyling was also Mexican inspired, wraparound braids signature of the late Mexican painter Frido Khalo.
The most exciting part (after finding my name on my seat) was the show's finale. Naeem Khan sent a model down dressed in a gorgeous wedding gown with a veil that cascaded down to the floor. This finale look was a sneak-peek at Naeem Khan's new bridal line which will debut later this month!
Celebs filled the front row at the fashion show. I spoke with a bunch of them and pictures are to follow in my next blog post. :)
