The Naeem Khan 2008 fall runway show embraced luxury with a zeal for everything glamorous. Few other fashion week designers showed truly gorgeous gowns complete with metallic fabrics and embellishments. Fall 2008 seemed more focused on ready-to-wear lines, and it was inspiring to watch Khan’s departure from the conventional frocks of most Bryant Park shows.

The twenty-six looks embodied the jet set lifestyle with long, lean sweeping gowns and backless python numbers. The clothing had movement and every garment was absolutely stunning. This line was not as esoteric as the Parisian collections, but it definitely brought back a sense of nostalgia with a nod to old school Hollywood.

The attention to detail was exquisite with marbled paillettes, crystals, feathers, and embossed leopard prints. The mix of high shine, sparkle, and onyx with sophisticated animal prints ushered in a return to decadence on the catwalk. Khan proved that even in the midst of bad economy, there still is a need for extravagant couture. Show goers Nina Garcia and Eva Longoria nodded in approval as they undoubtedly found the collection to be red carpet worthy.
