Naeem Khan's Spring/Summer 2016 runway show was dazzling -- literally his designs sparkled (see slides 15-18 above). This show was arguably one of the best we saw all week, if not the best, thanks to thumping house-opera, dramatic lighting and the most intricate, unique gowns of every color in the rainbow.
The collection included a wide array of patterns as well as solid colors -- think yellow, red, purple and pink. Khan debuted several eye-catching details like diamond-encrusted necklaces that acted as halters on several gowns (see slide 19) and 1970s'-era stripes with an added glitter effect.
One of coolest things about Khan's spring line, however, was the vast time periods from which he drew inspiration. Most runway shows this season have paid homage to the 1970s, but this collection featured pieces that harked back to the 1920s Prohibition Era, the '40s, the '50s, the '60s and '70s, and even the 1980's age of disco. Khan did not discriminate when it came to honoring styles from throughout history, and the variety was refreshing.
