Many of the world’s most stylish women are devotees to one of the biggest names in fashion:
Naeem Khan. Committed to adorning elegant women in clothes befitting their refinement, his
glittering fan base of starlets and socialites includes Beyonce, Penelope Cruz, Taylor Swift, Lady
Gaga, Jennifer Lopez, Sarah Jessica Parker, Freida Pinto, Kate Beckinsale, Katy Perry, First Lady
Michelle Obama and Queen Noor of Jordan, and his designs have graced the silver screen in
fashion film classics like Sex & the City and Dreamgirls.
His luxurious collection consists of impeccably cut dresses, sophisticated gowns and chic
separates – all embroidered by hand. Khan was born in India and grew up surrounded by the
beauty of its culture, architecture, history and design. He cultivated his vast knowledge of textiles
under the watchful eyes of his grandfather and father, both well known in India for designing
intricate clothing worn by the royal families. As a child, he was mesmerized by the handwork
produced in their workshops, and always knew he wanted to be part of their intensely visual
medium. As a teenager, Khan moved to the United States and apprenticed for Halston, where he
absorbed the ethos of modern restraint, and the secrets of draping and cutting fabric to create a
clean, elegant, timeless silhouette. Between the equally opulent but aesthetically opposite worlds
of his father and Halston, Khan’s style was nurtured and his aesthetic was born.
He launched his eponymous collection, Naeem Khan, in 2003 and began selling at Bergdorf
Goodman, Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue. Since then the collection has grown to be sold
at more than 100 specialty stores across the world. His runway shows are among the most
anticipated events of New York fashion week. In 2008, Naeem Khan was inducted as a member of
the prestigious Council of Fashion Designers of America.
Naeem debuted a collection for HSN, TIMELESS by Naeem Khan, in October 2009, which sold out
within moments of his first appearance on the network. The line is sold exclusively via HSN and
consists of cocktail dresses and separates. An extension of the TIMELESS collection, a Tissavel
faux fur line including hats, scarves, vests and coats, launched in November 2011. Naeem Khan
Bridal launched in October 2013 and is being sold at top stores globally, including Bergdorf
Goodman and Mark Ingram Bridal Atelier in New York, Neiman Marcus in Dallas, and Saks Fifth
Avenue in Beverly Hills.
