Naeem Khan’s Spring 2017 collection was a departure for the designer as he infused some 70s style into his work — and he managed to do so without taking away from his signature embroidered dresses and voluminous gowns. Check it out right here and let us know who you think will be the first to rock the latest looks on the red carpet.
Naeem Khan debuted his Spring 2017 collection at New York Fashion Week on Sept. 14, where he sent a vibrant collection down the runway. While embroidered caftans and full ball gowns, (style signatures of the designer!), were present, his inspiration for the show was visible as soon as the models emerged. The show opened with slinky, bias-cut gowns in shades of red, black and white, making it clear that he drew upon his time working for his mentor, Halston, in the 70s. It was a departure for the designer but the dresses were just as gorgeous as his more signature pieces emerged later in the show.
His attention to detail was visible in the fabrics and the materials he wove throughout the collection. For example, one personal highlight had to be the opaque glass fringe dresses that shimmied down the runway in vibrant hues of blue, red, and yellow.
