The birthday boy for May 21 is Naeem Khan.
Khan is one of those designers who is difficult to put in an astrological box. What’s more, I don’t have a birth time for him. He’s got about a three-in-four chance of having a Taurus sun. His moon, however, is probably in Gemini — again, the odds of that plantary placement is about three-in-four. On the other hand, if he was born in the last few hours of the day, he could have a Gemini sun and a Cancer moon.
Without simply playing the odds, I do believe that he’s a Taurus. His best work evokes comparisons to another Taurus designer: Valentino. I believe that a decadent, luxury-loving Taurus is far more capable of producing the sort of eveningwear that Khan creates than a Gemini would be at creating similar clothing. I expect a sporty junior line from a Gemini, or maybe trendy accessories. I don’t anticipate a Gemini to have the focus to be responsible for the craftsmanship that I expect from Khan or Valentino.
It would be interesting to discover that Khan is a Gemini and not a Taurus. Off the top of my head, I can’t think of a single major Gemini fashion designer. Weird, huh?
