NEW YORK (AP) — With healthy doses of bright pinks and yellows, in butterfly prints and a palm motif, Naeem Khan's spring-summer collection felt sunny side up at New York Fashion Week.
There was, of course, plenty of the bling Khan is known for in gowns that have landed on the backs of queens and first ladies. Those allowed to wear open backs, one-shoulder in jersey and raffia fringe are more than welcome.

NEW YORK (AP) — This Fashion Week, designers have come up with widely varying ways to comment, either overtly or not, on the nation's political situation. Naeem Khan decided to use poetry.
As the final design made its way down the runway on Tuesday — a grand, glistening, golden bridal gown, with a gold floral crown and a cascading veil with a black-and-gold train — the soundtrack played Maya Angelou reading her poem, "Human Family."
