Celebrity favorite Naeem Khan
will not hold a big show at this February's New York Fashion Week. He, like designers Betsey Johnson
, Carmen Marc Valvo
, and Monique Lhuillier
, has decided to showcase his upcoming Fall/Winter collection in a more intimate exhibition instead.
The economic crisis has severely hurt high-end retailers, and it's likely that Naeem Khan and his management are hoping to cut costs by scaling back their exhibition. Runway shows at Bryant Park can cost up to $600,000 - a price many designers aren't willing to pay in these difficult times.Pictures from Naeem Khan's Spring 2009 Presentation (click any image below):
