Naeem Khan's Fall 2010 collection of beyond gorgeous gowns was presented last evening at Bryant Park. Check out a great overview of the collection from Rachel Dodes of the Wall Street Journal, here. In the story, Mr. Khan says of the first lady's choice to wear his gown for the state dinner last year:
“It’s the gift that doesn’t stop giving. My stuff is flying out of stores,” said Mr. Khan, clad in a black blazer and jeans, backstage. “I love it. My business is taking a big turn for the better. Even in an economy like this, glamorous things like these are selling in the stores. And for that I say, ‘Thank you Michelle Obama.’”
Interesting to note that a designer at the luxury end of the fashion spectrum is attributing a boost in sales to Mrs. O's patronage.
