SC: What type of clothes do you design?
ARK: My collection consists of Avant garde and haute couture signature pieces which are geared for high end clientele who aren’t afraid to dress out side the box to fit inside the society circle. In addition I’m also the inventor of the world famous bridal “Azara” which is a fairy tale wedding gown where east meets west to create one head turning gown adorned with genuine embellishment hand picked and intricately hand embroidered. This gown over the years have become so popular that its asked for by name and can take upto 4 months to complete, everyone whose ever worn one will admit its definitely worth its “wait” in gold. Recently I launched a new mainstream line “Moali New York” consisting of gorgeous silk embellished tunic collection sold in many high end boutiques throughout Europe, Middle East and USA.
This extravagant collection can be viewed on my group page on facebook under celebrity fashion designer Alia R Khan.
SC: You have been described as the next Versace. How do you feel about that?
ARK: I don’t consider myself to be the next “Versace” I’m designer Alia R. Khan and have my own design concept and my own identity. In this tough fashion industry, all great designers have their own sense of style which is what makes their signature look unique, its what makes their creativity stand out and look different. I’m very passionate about fashion and keeping my look distinctive and I work very hard in maintaining it, although its great to be compared to one of the greatest, but I am happy to be me designer, “Alia R Khan”.

SC: How do you enjoy living in NY?
ARK: I love NY, no place else I’d rather be for sure. I’ve traveled extensively all over the world but coming home to the vibe and the energy of the “big apple” is priceless. I can’t think of a more suitable place to jump start my new endeavor of becoming an award winning prominent movie star lighting up the silver screen in the very near future, as they say, “If I can make it hear, I can make it anywhere” so definitely New York is thee place for me!
SC: Your clothes are very rich in color and vibrant. Who are your customers?
ARK: My clients have a finicky palette and love to take chances, they love elegant and sophisticated looks and aren’t afraid to experiment they have a desire to dress outside the box to make a statement, to stand out amongst the crowd. I’ve often had to transform these clients to try something new and take them out of their comfort zone and once they do they love it!!!
SC: Would you ever design men’s Clothes?
ARK: Its funny you should ask, well yes I do design for men, I have a fusion western and also a South Asian bridal collection for men.
SC: What message would you like to give Society’s Choice members?
ARK: Society’s Choice is a great social network, all the friends and connections I’ve made since I’ve been a member have truly been wonderful. The events hosted by my lovely friends Shireen and Alex have always been fun and interesting and they get better each time. As human beings we have one life to live, people come into our lives for a reason and I strongly believe in spirituality as everyday that we are privileged to be on this earth is a blessing and a start of our many journey’s ahead. Society’s Choice and their belief in philanthropy as one of the component is an added value for all of us to serve humanity, as this is really our calling!
Thank you Shireen and Alex I am truly honored for this opportunity and its always a pleasure!!!xo
