Naeem Khan has dressed everyone from leading ladies to first ladies in his signature embellished gowns.
In fact, the Indian-American designer counts Beyoncé, Michelle Obama and Kate Middleton among his many glamorous fans.
He and his wife, jewelry designer Ranjana Khan, split their time between New York — where his company and their two sons are based — and their Miami penthouse.
In 2019, Khan will move his headquarters to new buildings on Miami’s Northwest South River Drive, which will also house a fashion school.
“Miami is my new favorite city,” says the 58-year-old. “It’s tropical, multicultural and sunny.”
