Naeem Khan designs dresses for A-list stars like Christina Hendricks and Connie Britton, but on Wednesday, his client was much younger: 11-year-old Trinity Faith Moran. The fifth-grader from Texas was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer last year, and will undergo surgery in a few weeks.
Trinity, an avid fashionista, asked the Make-A-Wish Foundation to walk during fashion week, and Khan made that dream a reality. Not only did Trinity walk the runway, she collaborated with the designer to create the perfect gown.
“She loves fashion so much, and he got down on the floor with her, listened to her, and started sketching ideas,” Trinity’s mom told The Hollywood Reporter. “They drew three different designs together and talked about what would look good on her. It was beyond our wildest dreams.”
The final product was a red princess gown with gorgeous embroidery that made Trinity look like royalty as she walked and waved down the runway. New York Fashion Week made yet another girl’s dreams come true.
