EAT CHIC: At Lunch with Naeem Khan
New York based designer Naeem Khan's name is synonymous with vibrant colors, rich embroideries, luxe eveningwear and for those who know him best, entertaining. Khan's biggest fans and devotees are ladies of the night and ladies who lunch–those who look for any reason to dress up and seek to find the sophistication and luxury in even the most mundane of activities. You can spot a Naeem Khan woman from a mile away; she's the one in an embroidered suit sitting down for an espresso rather than grabbing it on the go, the swan-like socialite who opts for a brightly printed dress featuring loads of intricate threadwork to browse the racks at Bergdorf Goodman, and the ladylike fixture at a black tie affair who captivates the room from the center of the dance floor and understands that black tie meansblack tie (cocktail dresses are better suited for...well, cocktails).
And so, when we heard the affable, down-to-Earth and multi-talented designer prefers to cook lunch for his team and sit down to a meal at a properly set table to exchange stories, jokes and ideas over organic, seasonal dishes (rather than pop out and grab a sad salad or sandwich to eat at his cutting table or desk), we invited ourselves over for lunch. Over a healthy meal of marinated pompano fillets and Naeem's signature salads, we got some delicious insight, easy recipes and entertaining tips from the fashion world's most elegant foodie.Scroll down for recipes.
