The Yale Law School INTERSECTIONS team is thrilled to invite you to our annual interdisciplinary panel and exhibit. On Friday, April 19th from 12:00-1:15pm in Sterling Law Building 127, join us for remarks on the Politics and Diplomacy of Fashion with Naeem Khan.

Naeem Khan is a trailblazing Mumbai-born, New York-based fashion designer known for his ornate and detailed gowns. After First Lady Michelle Obama wore an original creation for the State Dinner with India’s Prime Minister in 2009, the House of Khan blossomed into a global powerhouse catered to the world’s leading ladies in politics, culture, tech, and film. Of his cherished clientele, Naeem has dressed Michelle Obama, Queen Noor of Jordan, and Catherine, Princess of Wales, Beyonce, and Taylor Swift, among others. Naeem will be displaying an in-person exhibit of Michelle Obama’s State Dinner dress!

Naeem Khan started his career working for the iconic designer Halston when he moved to the US at the age of 18. He is a member of the Council of Fashion Designers of America and his clothes can be found in over 225 high-end stores across the world.

The House of Khan is largely influenced by the beauty of India - its culture, architecture, and history. He has worked closely with his generational family factory and continues to expand his oeuvre beyond clothing into museum exhibitions, interior design, and more.

The panel will be moderated by Professor Amy Chua, and lunch, masala chai, and lassis will be served.
