One of the most well-renowned Indian designers to make it big and create a mark on international waters as well is Naeem Khan. Born in Bareilly the ace designer known for his intricate gowns and glamorous dresses, developed an early interest in garments thanks to his father and grandfather who designed clothes worn by Indian royalties.
The designer moved to the United States in 1978 and played apprentice to legendary designer Halston, who was known for his clean and minimal designs. Only in 2003 did Khan launch his own label and showcase his work at the New York Fashion Week and was well received with some of the world-renowned celebrities wearing outfits created by him on red carpets and to shows.

With sequin dresses, tunic-like gowns, statement jewelled and sequined pantsuits, the designer has not hesitated to experiment with prints, embroidery and sequins on his outfits.
