Join us for Celebrating Couture 2013 on May 21! Naeem Khan, who described his collection in a CNN interview as “Super glam”, will join us once again to personally present his Fall 2013 collection. Presented by our long-time partner, Neiman Marcus, and inspired in the art deco sketches of Erté and the opulent designs of the Byzantine and Ottoman empires, the collection will be fresh from its unveiling at New York’s Fashion Week in February 2013.
During the 2013 Academy Awards telecast, one billion viewers around the World admired Naeem Khan’s Art Deco-inspired creations worn by First Lady Michelle Obama live from the White House. A couple of hours earlier, actor George Clooney claimed to ”have sewn some of the beads” himself as his companion, actress and dancer Stacey Keibler, was stopped along the way to show off her spectacular Khan creation.
This year’s Celebrating Couture fashion show is not to be missed. The date is May 21, 2013. The place is the Hilton San Diego Bayfront, and the Guilders have stepped on the accelerator to make this happen three months earlier than previous years, headed by their past president, Liz Helming.
We are delighted to announce that Elaine Darwin has agreed to be the Celebrating Couture 2013 honorary chair. Another very exciting announcement is that Iris Strauss will host the patron party at her Rancho Santa Fe estate the evening of Monday, May 20, with our very special guest, designer Naeem Khan. By donating $500 or more to help offset the fashion show expenses you will receive an invitation for two to attend this very exclusive event.
