The runway sizzled leaving a trail of fire behind it after the opening look for Naeem Khan’s Fall Winter 2015 runway show with a strapless black empire waist lace gown with hand placed gold beaded and hand painted gold accents leading the way. Maybe fire is a bit amplified, but the runway definitely was not ready for the figurative fire Khan’s collection left ablaze for his 10 year anniversary of showing at New York Fashion Week.
Gown after gown melted the runway proving to be even more magical and beautiful than the last, with an incredible amount of sparkle and noble quality to each. The precise details on these gowns are literally impossible to capture with photos alone. One needed to be front and center to take in all the intricacies and complexities of the design themselves.
With an air suited for royalty, each gown featured divine fabrics sourced in India and Europe with intricately hand painted lace, gold metallic dome beads, embroidered accents, and Swarovski crystals. Other regal accouterments included fur, tails, BEST IN SHOW: 20 Stunning Red Carpet looks From Naeem Khan Just In Time For The Oscarstrains and capes.
No detail was left under-dressed; hair was coiffed in elegant French rolls fit for a queen led by Joseph Dimaggio, Master Session Ambassador for Davines. The set design was also very majestic, with an elaborate blue, black and white graffiti wall designed by Trek6 with Swarovski crystal strands hanging down to the floor on each side of the mural in the forefront, a perfect rendition to the, “Modern woman who lives in a timeless world of classic beauty,” Naeem Khan declares.
Epitomizing luxury, style, elegance, class, and grace while adorned in Christian Louboutin heels, this showing wowed us all. Every piece presented absolutely blew us away but if we had to pick our favorites; a white tuxedo with tails that dusted the floor stole the show, in addition to the finale look an iridescent hot pants romper with plunging neckline halter top, lace stockings and lace kings cape.
We look forward to seeing Khan’s creations bringing the fire to the red carpet this Oscar season.
