Naeem Khan to host fall collection at benefit for Old Globe Theatre

Naeem Khan

Couture designer Naeem Khan will present his 2013 Fall Collection (with Neiman Marcus) at the annual Globe Guilders Fashion Show and luncheon on May 21 at the Hilton San Diego Bayfront, 1 Park Blvd.

A Champagne Reception and silent auction will kick off the event at 10 a.m. with a live auction and opportunity drawing at noon, followed by the luncheon and runway show.

Proceeds from the event will help fund the programs of The Old Globe Theatre, San Diego’s largest performing arts institution.

The Patron Party for “Celebrating Couture” underwriters will be held at the Rancho Santa Fe estate of Matthew and Iris Strauss on May 20. Special guests will be Khan and Elaine Darwin, the event’s honorary chair and a Globe board member.

Fresh from New York’s Fashion Week, Khan’s art-deco-inspired creations were admired last week by viewers around the world on Oscar night with gowns worn by first lady Michelle Obama (live from the White House) and Stacey Keibler on the Red Carpet.

“I wanted to up the ante this year with glamour and more glamour. Super glam!” Khan said in a recent CNN interview. “I was inspired by the Erte sketches and Art Deco, mixing this with all the luxury of the Ottoman and Byzantine empires, but modern, clean, for the today woman.”

This is the fifth time Khan has been asked to present at the Globe Guilders luncheon. Tickets for “Celebrating Couture 2013” are $105-$225 online at
