When asked about the inspiration for the silk collection, Khadijah Shah, Creative Director of Élan commented; “Silk is a fabric that is very dear to my heart, perhaps because it embedded in nostalgia and distant memories of my childhood in a way. I have always associated silk with evening elegance. The notion probably stems from seeing my grandmother wear some gorgeous silk ensembles or the other for dinner parties – the association has been slowly fermenting since then.”

The luxury brand was launched ten years ago by Khadijah Shah. She is respected for her combination of intricate embellishments, flattering silhouettes and attention to detail. Each collection is conceived with glamour, elegance and versatility in mind. In March 2012, Khadijah Shah launched her debut seasonal unstitched printed lawn collection which is now considered the most anticipated lawn each season.
