Naeem Khan
Fall ’19 Bridal

A subdued collection of a newfound bohemian lightness and refinement for the designer

Fall ’19 for Naeem Khan was a celebration of the artisan techniques he’s renowned for, yet suffused with a newfound lightness and refinement that only elevated each piece. A true master of his craft, Naeem stayed true to his textural techniques carried through each collection with delicate beading, three dimensional appliqué and bold silk embroidery.

This season was a beautiful balance of tactile finishes with sheer, ethereal organzas and slim-lined silhouettes. While staying true to his roots, the drama of Naeem’s collection was toned down and channeled into intricate detailing, creating an elegant collection that exuded a modern bohemia.

Editor’s Highlight

A sheer gown wrapped in antique botanical motifs, the perfect dress for the modern bohemian bride. On first glance, it looks to be embroidered, yet a closer expectation reveals layers of intricate and unexpected textures – stitches is lined with white pearlescent beads, framed with a quilting beading technique and constructed from a blend of different fabrics. It’s this inimitable detail and artisanal approach that never fails to surprise us every single season, that separates Naeem Khan from any designer.
