Honest opinion about the Indian Fashion Scenario

Naeem Khan at New York Fashion Week

Posted by Indian Fashion Police on September 17, 2010

Spring is here for sure………………..Oh I know it is still autumn but that is what I am thinking after looking at Naeem Khan’s Spring 2011 collection which he presented on 16th Sept., 2010 at the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week 2010 in New York City. His earlier Spring 2010 collection was dominated by colours like black, white, fuchsia, pinks but this time around it is a bouquet of amazing spring colours. Whereas the Autumn 2010 collection had loads of sequins, detail work and tonnes of shimmer…………Spring 2011 had more emphasis on floral details and was very subtle.  If you wish to see Naeem Khan’s Fall 2010 collection please click here

The collection had evening gowns, short summer dresses, cocktail dresses, skirts with flirty tops, Kaftan type dresses with golden embroidery work, one shoulder and even off shoulder dresses. Styling was kept neat in order to give more emphasis to the outfits with straight set in front hairstyles…………………what makes his collection stand out as always has to be the combination of his outfits and the amazing  jewelery……………………………Let me guess Mrs.Ranjana Khan gets the credit for the colourful summer feel jewelery. The collection was all about colour, colour and more colour which is the nerve of any spring collection…………..Naeem Khan has got to the point.

My favourite piece of creation in this collection is definitely the floral motifs on yellow background outfits…………..love the play of different tints & hues with minimal detail work…………..very, very contemporary yet absolutely spring. After seeing all the boring summer collection in whites, blacks and beige [of course it is boring if there ain’t anything new & creative]……………..this collection was like fresh air. Let’s understand that international fashion is not just about ‘cut’ anymore…………the detail work is ‘in vogue’ and the way to future. In fact in my opinion it is the kind of detailing that makes  a designer unique in today’s fashion scene.

My Verdict about the Naeem Khan Spring 2011 collection : His creations are here to stay!!!

P.S. : To the Indian Media : Please do put the spotlight on Indian origin Designers settled abroad for their hard work and show some enthusiasm as you would when you look at any Bollywood celebrity…………….Our country has immense talent settled abroad but we rather admire a foreigner’s work than acknowledge our own people. Pity!!!
