Naeem Khan isn’t about to give up his New York apartment, but he has finalized a nearly $30 million plan to develop a design studio, manufacturing center and a school in Miami.
Resting on the Miami River, the facility will house a design studio, production, a school, Khan's new foundation and cultural center for art-meets-fashion type parleys. In talks with the Design and Architecture High School in Miami, Khan said his team would be the auxiliary arm to support the school with technicians and artisans that work within the industry. With one acre of land, the designer plans to build a school on one side of the property and his production facilities on the other. “I thought, ‘So how cool will it be to practically teach high school students and have them see everything we do from how we create the prints, do the embroideries, put on a fashion show.”
"I think that all anyone really wants in life is to have people understand us for who we actually are, despite everything," says Ruth Negga. The actress talks "Preachers" season 2 and more on WWD.com. #wwdeye (📷: Dan Doperalski)
"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
