Naeem Khan brought it home with his new spring-summer 2020 collection, launching his runway show in the chic lobby and courtyard of his New York City apartment building.
The longtime designer set up shop Tuesday on the ground floor of the ultramodern Zaha Hadid Building on Manhattan's west side. Lucite chairs lined the entryway and outside space of the building - a modern metallic and glass structure with serpentine lines and rounded balconies towering over a courtyard. Hadid, who was a close friend of Khan's, designed the building before her death in 2016.
Khan said the space Hadid created inspired the collection, calling it salon-like and intimate.
"Lots of separates, lots of coats, jackets, of course glamour, because I'm known for that, but it's like fluid, it's light, it's airy. The pajamas are so chic. It's like, tunics mixed with pants. Really glamour at its most relaxed form," Khan told The Associated Press at the show.
A parade of models strutting in impossibly high stiletto heels entered into the building's courtyard, with the evening breeze helping to increase the dramatic effect of the loose, flowing designs.
Most wore slicked back updo's with intricate fishtail buns, accentuated by huge gold hoop earrings with bejeweled parrots and seahorses.

The first several looks were animal print pajama pantsuits, dresses and jumpsuits with matching thin billowing jackets. While some prints were in the fabric, many were embellished with sequins, creating glittering texture.
Several designs honoured Khan's Indian heritage, including a pink Sari-inspired dress with a dramatic train of ombre' effects of pink and orange chiffon, and a long green tunic dress with a decorative panel of beading.

Hypothyroidism develops when the thyroid doesn’t make enough hormones. As a result, your metabolism slows down. As thyroid activity slows, the level of T4 in your body decreases, and the level of TSH increases to encourage the thyroid gland to raise T4 production.
