CITY: Fashion + Art + Culture featuring Naeem Khan

March 4 @ 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm

CITY Fashion+Art+Culture Featuring Naeem Khan Save the date March 4, 2023

Prepare for a stylish and energetic evening at Tampa’s most fashionable fundraising event, CITY: Fashion+Art+Culture, on Saturday, March 4, 2023. Now celebrating its 12th year, CITY transforms the Tampa Museum of Art into a vibrant runway filled with inspiring, intricately detailed, couture-like fashions created by international design phenomenon Naeem Khan.

Guests at CITY will enjoy a spectacular presentation of Khan’s runway collection and appearance by the designer. In 2022, Vogue Runway described Khan’s designs as glamour with a capital “G” and said that his “lavish designs cut through the noise, not for their silhouettes but for their handcraftsmanship from India.”

Co-chairs: Sharmilla Seth and Courtney Kuhn

Proceeds from CITY support the Tampa Museum of Art’s exhibitions and education programs for children, teens and adults.

About Naeem Khan

Naeem Khan in 2022 Fall Fashin WeekBorn and raised in Mumbai, Khan grew up in a world surrounded by culture, architecture, art, history and design. As a boy, he cultivated a vast knowledge of textiles under the watchful eyes of his grandfather and father, both of whom designed intricate clothing worn by Indian royal families. Khan ultimately moved to the United States as a teenager to become a designer and launched his career as an apprentice for legendary American designer Halston at the age of 20. During his time with Halston, he immersed himself in the ethos of modern restraint and learned the craft of draping and cutting fabric to create a clean, elegant and timeless silhouette. Khan eventually merged this design philosophy with the knowledge he gained from his family’s business to nurture his own unique style, and the Naeem Khan design aesthetic was born.

Khan launched his eponymous collection in 2003 and began selling at Bergdorf Goodman, Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue. Since then, his collections have adorned glamorous women around the world, including Beyoncé, Jennifer Lopez, Taylor Swift, Rachel McAdams, First Lady Michelle Obama, Queen Noor of Jordan, and the Princess of Wales, Kate Middleton, among others. In 2008, he was inducted as a member of the prestigious Council of Fashion Designers of America and most recently launched the Naeem Khan Bridal collection in 2013. Today the Naeem Khan Ready-to-Wear and Bridal collections are sold at more than 150 retail outlets across the world.
