Naeem Khan at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week

And so opens the Naeem Khan Spring 2012 show at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week. The glitter! The glam! As the lights came up, the music rocked, and the models strutted down the runway, the stage at Lincoln Center came alive with flashing photog lights and the oohs-and-aahs of appreciative fashionistas. From the very first multi-colored flowing floral caftan to the very last silver metallic ballgown, Naeem Khan's spring collection rocks.
Silver, gold, pink and red dominated the color scheme on Thursday night, and long or short gowns on the runway were the essence of femininity. The jet-black mirrored runway reflected floral prints, sparkling high heels, lace and chiffon hemlines, and ostrich feathers sweeping the floors.
Khan's designs are innovative and exciting. A chantilly laced off-the-shoulder jumpsuit, a nude beaded cowl-front gown, a gold beaded cocktail dress, a body-hugging floral dress with thigh-high slit and a sequined gown with ostrich feather skirt. Satin, chiffon, tulle and organza. Burgundy, taupe, periwinkle, fuschia, orange, silver and ruby. The collection is as diverse as Khan's celebrity clientele.
Ah, if only I lived in the world of the rich and famous, a world where I could wear a different Naeem Khan ballgown to every fancy party I'm invited to every day of the week! Khan seems to truly understand the female body and is not afraid for his designs to show off some of those curves that we women have been blessed with!
A little bit rock, a little bit sweet, sexy and classic at the same time, Khan's designs are the most beautiful and chic on the runway this season. - Jennifer
