Naeem Khan’s spring 2018 bridal collection is everything you could ask the designer for, with a little bit extra thrown in for good measure. The luxurious looks and incredible embellishments were everything – top to bottom the styling was absolutely incredible.
Backstage, Naeem Khan explained the aesthetic, saying: “It’s about luxury. This woman really wants the best, and these brides come from all across the world, from Saudi Arabia to Israel to Santo Domingo, Peru to North America. It’s the crème de la crème,” and the sentiment is evident in every inch of every look. A Naeem Khan gown is distinctive, gorgeous, romantic and dreamy, always.
The Naeem Khan bridal spring 2018 collection is well-rounded offering a lot of different options for every preferred aesthetic and silhouette. The modern take on flapper style made a very big impression on the runway for this collection and it was breathtakingly beautiful.
There were plenty of gown options, but the drop-waist gown with ostrich feathered skirt worked stunningly with the embellished bodice is definitely for the bride with a sultrier and more adventurous look.
My personal favorite, however, was the glittering, shimmering jumpsuit that was completely covered in caviar beading in a detailed and organized fashion. The jumpsuit was stunning and unbelievably beautiful. Perhaps the bride wants a laid-back wedding but still wants to stand out and certainly sparkle. She can do that in this pantsuit. Perhaps it would be the reception outfit, but the point is the option was beautiful.
To explain how he views his clientele, Naeem Khan said: “The idea is, Who is this woman who wears my clothes? She’s fashion-conscious, she travels, she obviously wants multiple wares. She wants to get married in an important dress, and then she wants to change for the rest of the evening.”
There are classic options in the collection as well, but the inclusion of such classics like the A-line gown, the fluttering sleeves, the veils and the stunning train will have plenty of appeal. The best touches of the collection though – as usual with a Naeem Khan collection – is in the details. The lace and beading line up perfectly symmetrically to flatter the figure. The well placed ruffles add volume and movement but not unflattering bulk.
The movement in each option is just right for the style, there is nothing jarring or out of place, everything just looks right. What else could a bride want but to know that she can depend on her dress to look and feel beautiful on, to be beautiful in photos and to wow everyone who lays eyes on her?
