Bangalore: Naeem Khan, an Indian American fashion designer based in New York has expressed his desire to work for bollywood celebrities and also open a store in Mumbai, as reported by PTI.

Khan who began his career working for ‘Halston’ rose to popularity by designing costumes for celebrities such as Brooke Shields and Beyonce.

Michelle Obama, Beyonce Knowles, Katy Perry, Penelope Cruz, Sonam Kapoor are some of the prominent personalities who have experienced the talent of this designer.

“I want to continue working for Bollywood celebrities. Celebrities here are mixing with the world, for example going to Cannes,” Khan said.

“I would definitely open a store here. India is a huge market and it is just beginning. I was here to test the waters as to how people will react. I am happy and proud to be here. It means a lot to be presenting my collection here,” he said, reports PTI.

Khan recently presented his collection at the Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2013, which included splendid dresses, stylish gowns, skirts and coats.

“But I was anxious also thinking how people here will find my collection. I was wondering how Indians will react to my show, and whether they will like it or not,” Khan said.

“I was worried about the look of my models, as when I do my shows abroad we have a hairstylist from London and makeup man from France. But I must say I was happy with the end result,” he added.

When asked why he had no celebrity showstopper, Khan said, “It was done deliberately. I am here in the business of making and selling clothes. I am not here for theater and clothes create drama.”
