Naeem Khan

Naeem Khan was born in India and grew up surrounded by the beauty of its culture, architecture, history, and design. These influences helped cultivate his vast knowledge of textiles under the watchful eyes of his grandfather and father, both well-known in India for designing clothing for Indian royalty in their family-owned factory. As a teenager, Khan moved to the United States and apprenticed for Halston, where he absorbed the ethos of modernism, and the secrets of draping and cutting fabric to create clean, elegant, and timeless silhouettes. Today, his focus is to create clothing that embodies beauty, glamour and femininity while purposefully evolving his vision in the world of fashion. Khan’s work typically features exquisite hand-embroidery, done by artisans who have also created sumptuous embroidery for the world’s top fashion houses for decades. The Mumbai-based facility was founded by Khan’s grandfather and is still family-run, with nearly 2000 experts working by hand. For Khan’s designs, this lavish detailing is put onto the finest fabrics from Italy, France, and Spain which are then finished at his atelier in New York City. A member of the Council of Fashion Designers of America, Khan was heavily influenced by his first job in fashion, where he spent his days working on dresses for icons, like Elizabeth Taylor and Liza Minnelli, created by the legendary American designer Halston in the late 1970’s. Today, Khan dresses Red Carpet celebrities and fashion icons such as Michelle Obama and Kate Middleton who exude powerhouse glamour and yet appreciate the distinctly modern allure of his designs. The Naeem Khan RTW and Bridal collections are sold in department stores and fashion boutiques in 22 countries worldwide as well as on naeemkhan.com.

Chiara Macchiavello

Chiara Macchiavello has become one of the best ambassadors of Peru’s cultural richness. Since she was little, she has traveled throughout the country, which made her very close to the artisans who preserve the clothing techniques that have passed from generation to generation. Macchiavello studied costume design at Saint Martins in London, where she understood that to make a difference she had to turn to Peru, its traditions and its origin. She decided to return in 2007 and create a brand based on inherited weaving techniques, on the richness of the traditions and culture of our country. This is how Escudo “Devotees to design, committed to our heritage” was born. The brand rescues ancient techniques and artisanal processes of the Peruvian textile culture to take them to contemporary and avant-garde collections, using raw materials of the highest quality, such as pima cotton and baby alpaca. The brand’s mission is to export Peruvian design to the world and with only one year in the market it has already participated in national and international catwalks and fairs such as Copenhagen Fashion Week, Gallery Fair, Miami Fashion Week & Fair, Peru Moda and Fashion Edition.
