Our sunny San Diego is about to become the stage of a couture fashion show not to be missed! As we all know, couture is scarce in San Diego so when someone like Naeem Khan presents his Fall 2013 Collection, all the local fashion industry goes in alert!
Just in case you have been living under a rock, Naeem Khan is an Indian-born, American fashion designer whose designs have been worn by anyone who is anyone, such as Beyonce, Carrie Underwood, Eva Langoria, Heidi Klum, Brooke Shields, Nicole Richie, Queen Noor of Jordan and the list goes on and on. But Naeem’s most recognizable designs are those put on the couture map by our very own First Lady Michelle Obama.
On May 21, 2013, Naeem will grace the runway at the Globe Guilders Fashion Show where he will personally present his Fall Couture Line. Inspired in the art deco sketches of Erté and the opulent designs of the Byzantine and Ottoman empires, the collection will be fresh from its unveiling at New York’s Fashion Week in February 2013.
Presented by the Globe Guilders and Neiman Marcus, Celebrating Couture 2013 will be chaired by Elaine Darwin, while Iris Strauss will host the patron party at her Rancho Santa Fe estate the evening of Monday, May 20, with Naeem Khan as special guest. By donating $500 or more to help offset the fashion show expenses, you will receive an invitation for two to attend this very exclusive event.
