Elie Saab

I love Elie Saab's beautiful dresses, they are so intricate and each and every detail is payed careful attention to. Elie Saab is an expert in highlighting a woman's silhouette, everything he does is calculated and his dresses have such radiance, it seems that light just bounces off them like jewels. His floor sweeping gowns flow gorgeously. He uses fine materials and delicate beads and embroidery to create stunning feminine garments that have clothed many notable clients such as Queen Rania of Jordan, Princess Sirivannavari of Thailand and celebrities including; Rhianna, Christina Aguilera, Halle Berry, Katy Perry and Mila Kunis.

Elie Saab's interest in dress-making started at the age of 9 when he began to create dresses for his sisters and then  in his adolescence moved on to selling his items to women in his neighborhood. His main inspiration is the capital city of Lebanon, Beirut, where he was born and where he still maintains his workshop. His creations can be found all over the globe in boutiques in Paris, London and Beirut. His latest haute couture collection, Spring/ Summer 2012 is incredible and I thought I would share some of it with you.
