According to their website Bestow Elan an innovative womens wear label – contemporary in style, inspired by cultural awareness.Created for the discerning female, the designer behind this label Erzumah Ackerson draws her inspiration from both classic and vintage stimuli, as well as influences from her heritage - which in turn allows her t o create garments that are fitting for every occasion, and appeal to individuals from all walks of life.

BESTOW ELAN’s desire for design can be recognised in the way pattern-cutting is used to create silhouettes that not only complement the female form; they allow the wearer the confidence to feel feminine and chic.

The former London College of fashion student’s experiences within the industry include exhibiting her first collection in central London at Profile 4, assisting Jonathon Saunders, the print designer with his London Fashion Week debut, plus working on Russian label KISA LONDON’s Fashion Week collection.

The designer’s experiences continue to grow, as awareness of the label increases… BESTOW ELAN was selected and participated in the most recent KULTURE2COUTURE catwalk show at the V&A, showcased at the UNTOLD anniversary show and has been featured in a selection of publications.
BESTOW ELAN welcomes spring/summer 2010 with a collection the designer exclaims is all about her own self realisation and future endeavours, and is aptly named LIBERTY.
