About the designer
Lebanese-born designer Elie Saab started his eponymous label in 1982. The autodidact creative has been working with clothing since his early childhood when he crafted dresses for his sisters from used curtains and tablecloths. Today, he is loved and celebrated for his extravagant gowns and feminine ready-to-wear.
From the hands of Beirut-based craftsmen, each Elie Saab piece shows a pristine knack for detail. Whimsical fabrics as chiffon, organza and taffeta are embellished with gemstones and sequins to give them a fairytale-like feel. Saab’s ready-to-wear collections thrive on sophistication, without letting ultimately feminine shapes out of sight.
