The final show of Act 1 at PFDC Sunsilk Fashion Week 2013 Day 1 was presented by acclaimed design house Élan who showcased their collection named after Keats’ poem, ‘Ode to a Nightingale’. Inspired by the poem in both the literal and figurative sense, the collection was an artistic expression of transcending the human condition of despair and monotony and feeling at one with the nightingale in its blissful state of freedom and happiness. For Ode to a Nightingale designer Khadijah Shah re-created a series of Chinoiserie-style prints, featuring different natural elements such as birds, flowers, fish, trees and the quintessential full moon with the songbird featuring as a major recurring theme in many of the prints. The color palette was subtle and dusky – featuring sunset hues, watery blues, pale leafy greens and the pitch dark black of the night to bring them all together. For this collection, Khadijah also used atypical studs, flattened alloy disks and bulbous metal forms to create dramatic accents for cuffs, shoulder patches and belts along with cut-work, appliquéd net and thread filigrees and intricate silk thread embroidery for the more elaborate pieces. Fashion Editors Meher Tareen and Samina Khan walked the ramp as Elan’s showstopper. Check out Elan’s Collection for PSFW 2013 below.
