The Great Designers: Elie Saab

Today I am going to put the spotlight on one of the most talented designers that creates soft and feminine looks collection after collection. He was born in 1964 in Lebanon and at the age of 9 he was already making dresses for his sisters. Later on he started selling his creations to the women in his neighborhood. The self-taught designer opened his couture atelier in Beirut and started managing over a dozen employees when he was only 18. His very first collection attracted women from high society and they all desired an Elie Saab dress.

Invited by the Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture to show in Paris in 2000, now presents four collections a year (Haute Couture and RTW). In 2007 he opened a flagship boutique in the heart of Le Triangle d`Or. His main inspiration remains Beirut. There the designer founded and maintained his studio. In 2005, he inaugurated a modern five-storey building where are located the workshops, his studio, the ready-to wear boutique and couture showroom. The Elie Saab Atlier is the place where all the heavenly beautiful haute couture gowns are made and passed trough the hands of the designer. It is the sole heart of the savoir - faire and excellence of his achievements. 

Elie Saab magnifies femininity by working with fine materials and delicate embroideries with outstanding quality. His fairy tale creations are built using simple designs and precious resources. The designer's specialty is the ultimate couture dress that highlights a woman's silhouette.

Now as I cannot make a decision I am going to show you pieces both from the Fall 2011 RTW and Haute Couture collections.

Обожавам го! Всъщност, за да сме по-точни роклите му. Това е сигурно дизайнера, който е най-близо до това, което искам да правя. С нетърпение очаквам всяка колекция.
