Inspired by Mughal Paisley and Hindu Tilakas, Naeem Khan’s Fall 2012 presented many gowns which must be Oscar bound.

Models sparkled from head to toe wearing gold and silver ethnic embroidered gowns and gowns with bead work which looked heavy.

On the flip side, the designer presented a selection of organza abstract print gowns and dresses which were lighter than air as they floated down the runway.

Necklines plunged, thighs were revealed via splits and backs were open for those who wanted to show off more skin.

For those who don’t, luxe embroidered evening coats or sparkling caftans will enable you to make a statement just as bold without showing off too much skin.

Tweed metallic jackets, beaded gowns with fringe detailing, gowns with feathered skirts and studded pants which were to die for made up this eye-popping collection which sparkled so brightly against the black backdrop.
