Michelle Obama wears Naeem KhanThanks in no small part to Michelle Obama, Naeem Khan was thrust even farther into the international spotlight. How to capitalize on that new influx of potential clients? Expand into daywear and separates. From the first look—a black and white rose print organza cocktail dress—one knew that a new chapter had begun. “I purposefully wanted to take my night aesthetic and bring it into daytime,” he said backstage. “But these aren’t clothes for going food shopping; they’re for more important things. Like lunch.”

His own travels inspired Khan for spring, whose focus featured such elements as Moroccan art, geometric patterns and metalwork, as well as floral imagery, burning desert sunsets and the crashing ocean surf. It’s nice to see Khan explore the non-black tie pursuits of his fabulous clientele.
