Naeem Khan of NY makes India debut

World-renowned stylist Naeem Khan, who has dressed the likes of US First Lady Michelle Obama, singer Beyonce and actress Penelope Cruz, showcased his collection for the first time in India at the Lakme Fashion Week 2013.

Being held in Mumbai, the fashion fiesta is on a roll with a plethora of celebrity showstoppers and front-row personalities.
Day two ended with a fashion coup of sorts with global star Freida Pinto seated in the front row to cheer for Naeem. She played her part to the tee, dressed in a black and white knee-length number by the Indian-born American designer.

While the audience flocked to get a glimpse of her, Freida graciously kept a low profile to ensure all the focus was on the designer.
Naeem’s collection was a melange of glamorous evening wear, cocktail gowns and red carpet dresses. Models sashayed down the runway in chic numbers with a hint of shimmer and sequins. The filigree leaf work embellished red and green floor sweeping dresses had just the right mix of sexy and red-carpet opulence. The collection was inspired by traditional weaves and textiles of the country but the silhouettes were modern and contemporary.

The designer was humbled with the appreciation he received. While walking to the head ramp, he said, “I’m so happy to be here. I was anxious thinking how Indians will perceive my work.”

Dsigner Rocky S presented a trendy collection of evening gowns and dresses on Day two. The color black and fold dominated his creations and model-turned-actress Evelyn Sharma was the showstopper for the designer second season in a row.
