Beyoncé’s Designer, Naeem Khan, Receives Top Honor From Mercedes-Benz
Mercedes-Benz has recognized Naeem Khan for his “quality materials, unique style and innovative design,” the characteristics that define Benz’s three-pointed star.
Khan, Beyoncé’s designer, has received the title of “Mercedes-Benz Presents” designer for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Fall 2012 Collections.
The Naeem Khan collection will be featured in a Mercedes-Benz display in the lobby of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. His designs will be shown with the 2012 ML63 AMG SUV, according to a released statement.
Each season, Mercedes-Benz supports a designer that best represents quality, and innovative design.
Lisa Holladay, manager of brand experience marketing for Mercedes-Benz USA, says Khan’s craftsmanship and impeccable cuts made him a perfect fit for Mercedes-Benz. “His highly-crafted embroidered pieces and breathtaking gowns that grace the runways of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week are expressions of his precision and expertise, and we are thrilled to support his show this season.”
Of course, Khan says he’s a supporter of Mercedes as well. “As a lifetime Mercedes-Benz owner, the honor of being chosen as the Mercedes-Benz Presents designer has a very special meaning to me,” he says.
Naeem Khan has also created designs for Penelope Cruz and first lady Michelle Obama.
The Naeem Khan line was launched in 2003 in New York and began selling at Bergdorf Goodman, Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue. In 2008, Khan was inducted as a member of the prestigious Council of Fashion Designers of America. Today his collection is sold in more than 100 stores.
Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week is taking place in New York City at Lincoln Center from Feb. 9 to 16, 2012. For more information, visit newyork.mbfashionweek.com.
