Fusion Couture Fashion Show

I love getting unique behind the scenes shots of models and garments before they hit the runway. Friday night was no different. I even had  a chance to catch up with designer Umair Khan of Meru Merus to watch him prepare for the final showing of his fall pieces at the Fashion Couture fashion show.


The goal of Jaz Creationz is to build bridges between communities through fashion and culture. Using diverse cultural heritage, the show reflected the vitality of the creative human spirit and showcased the diverse talents of Indo American fashion designers. The amazing designers include Envy Couture by Anil, Hamza Designs, Alexandria Lee, Silks and Satin by Kiran, Meru Merus, Luv xoxo fashion by Malanie Harvey, Tezaria’s Jewelry, Sapna Boutique. Make up and hair was done by  Faces by Priya and Dani B and Hair stylist, Cynthia Gutierrez. Enjoy!


Meru Merus by Umair Khan

I watched excitedly as a nearly empty space  turned into a runway. Couture designer Umair Khan was at the head of it all. I LOVE to be front row at fashion shows but my true passion lies in what happens behind the scenes. I love the frantic buzz of designers, models, makeup artists, and hair stylist preparing for for the big moment. My deep appreciation for the people that make wonders happen is the center of this piece.

I watched as designer Umair Khan calmly walked around and put his touch on everything. To watch a designer take such care of seemingly minuscule details was like watching an artist create a masterpiece before my very eyes. Yet while all this was being done, he found the time to make sure I had everything I needed.

Partnered with Umair to finish all the looks was Afsheen Tejani and Pooja Jain of Tezaria’s High Couture Jewelry. The hand crafted pieces gave the feel of completion to every single look. We all know that a couture garment goes seamlessly with couture jewelry and Tezaria’s did not disappoint. See more hand crafted pieces on Instagram. 

 The hard work was done. The beautiful Meru Merus Fall 2015-Winter 2016 couture line was complete. Every model was fitted for garments, they practice their walks, and there was Umair every step of the way making sure that it was Authentically+Meru Merus. The level of preparedness, dedication, and passion was not unnoticed. All of Umair’s influences shined brightly in every piece that came down the runway.The dream and vision of being a respected designer has and will continue to come to fruition for Umair and Meru Merus.
