Naeem Khan Spring ’19 Bridal

A decadent collection of gowns inspired by nostalgic icons

There was a hustle and bustle backstage as final touches were stitched, hair finessed and decadent Chopard jewels meticulously layered around wrists and necks. The energy in the room was of true excitement as the collection was finally coming together after months of toiling over every minute detail; layers of stranded iridescent glass bead tassels, embroidery intertwined with pearls, sequins, feathers and raffia and newly explored stitching techniques and fabrications. It was clear Naeem Khan was pushing the boundaries this season, a notion he reiterated with the collection’s inspiration; powerhouse female rockstars the likes of Madonna and Pat Benatar.


Rockstars with a feminine edge… powerful, beautiful, fearless. Classic Naeem notions come into play, yet approached in a different way for a fresh take on bridal. 70s inspired silhouettes of embellished jumpsuits, hooded tracksuits and party dresses with art deco motifs and sheer panels. It’s unapologetically lavish and extravagant, rich in texture and detail.
