As you might have seen in my previous post, I started a series of blog posts where I share with you my favourites designers and their work as well as some details about them.
Today’s post is about Elie Saab. In 1981 Saab moved to Paris to study fashion, and later returned to Beirut to open his fashion label. in 1982, when he was 18 years old, with a team of 15 employees. At first, his atelier was specialized in bridal couture making wedding dresses and gowns using rich fabrics, lace, detailed embroidery, pearls, crystals and silk threads. In Beirut, his reputation grew from dressing the women in his neighbourhood, and was soon enhanced by high society women who began sporting his designs.
Elie Saab’s style is a unique fusion of western and eastern culture. He uses noble materials such as taffeta, organza, noble and satin paired with more fluid and light fabrics.
Here are some creations from their Autumn/Winter 2016-2017 couture that I absolutely love!
