The first act of Day 1 at PSFW closed with Élan’s thundering collection, Ode to a Nightingale. Inspired by Keats’ poem, the collection is an expression of transcending the human condition of despair and monotony and feeling one with the nightingale in its blissful state of freedom and happiness. Carrying on with her love for the orient, designer Khadijah Shah took her collection from last year further by developing more structured prints. Élan has always been known for its luxury prét, and not only were the prints luxurious but her cuts wer equally fascinating. Funky geometric accessories added to the entire look of the collection. The biggest hit of the collection would have to be the balloon skirt. It is well-structured and flattering — it might not appear on the racks, but fashion-forward ladies will definitely want to be seen in it. The showstopper dress worn by Mehreen Syed was one of the only embellished pieces; however, with this collection Élan’s prints stole the show and upstaged the showstopper.
