On my last visit to New York City, I fell in love with some of the old Art Deco era buildings with stylized details in starbursts, chevrons, metal work, and step back towers with arch work. The New York City skyline with those beautiful towers and rooftops served as Khan’s muse.The show started with some incredibly intricate embroidery patterns, that felt a bit busy due to the competing hues of red and blue layered throughout each dress. But then the color palette muted down to mostly black, white and grey, and in came the stunning sequin looks that mimicked the glittering sun on the buildings’ facades.
Flapper style fringe tiers create incredible movement on some of the looks in sheer shimmering silver. Khan took a departure from the sheer floral embroidery trend for a more sleek, Greco-Egyptian pattern of animal wings and plant leaves over a honeycomb mesh.
