Naeem Khan is an Indian-American fashion designer known for his ornate and intricately detailed gowns, and for dressing First Lady Michelle Obama, Beyoncé, Queen Noor of Jordan, and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge. Brimming with glossy color photographs of Khan’s chic designs, Embellished (Rizzoli) is an enthralling look at one of America’s most exciting designers. The book is an ode to Khan’s dazzling ready-to-wear and bridal designs, highlighting intricate embroidery, refined drapery, rich colors, and lush couture fabrics. Khan’s innovative vision marries the rich traditions and handmade textiles of his Indian roots as well as design inspirations from his travels to Peru, Japan, Russia, and Spain with modern techniques. Dramatic red-carpet gowns are studies in volume, while bejeweled frocks sparkle with sequins and crystals. Elsewhere, modern renditions of suits and pajama sets embody Khan’s romanticism, with delicate hand embroidery.
