Elie Saab Spring Haute Couture Spring 2011

Elie Saab

Elie Saab is a self taught guy. He taught himself to cut and make patterns and pretty much built a clientelle in his own neighborhood where he was growing up. At 18 he opened his couture atelier with 15 employees. A few months later he presented his first collection to a group of young women and soon developed a reputation for creating ultra feminine clothing, attracting women of high society who desired an Elie Saab dress.

In 1997 he was invited to present his collection at the prestigious Camera Nazionale della Moda as the only non-Italian designer among talented Italian designers. After three years of presenting his collection in Rome, he was invited by the Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture to present his collection as a guest in Paris.
In 2002 he opened his couture house in the eigth arrondessiment in Paris and gave the international clients an opportunity to order his fine designs.
Then in 2005 Saab opened his couture how right in the heart of the reconstructed downtown area of Beirut. It is a five floor building which houses his atelier, design studio, ready to wear line, couture and bridal salon. This is perfect for the middle eastern clientelle that can go to Beirut rather than Paris if it is a convenience for them.

Many celebrities wear his beautiful couture on the red carpet all over the world.
One of the most memorable ones was the one that Halle Berry wore when she won the Oscar in 2002.
His clientelle keeps growing which indicates that there is a demand for an Elie Saab dress.

His Spring Haute Couture 2011 collection presentation was a wonderful parade of dresses, layered and textured with lace, flowers, embroidery and beading that were intertwined with the chiffons, sliks and organzas. Each dress was draped to flatter the feminine body and constructed to perfection, especially the bodices that were all sprinkled and punctuated with beading and embroidery. What definitely connot be unoticed is the regal wedding dress that is fit for a princessat the end of the presentation. This was a perfect indication of what his bridal salon will be offering according to his vision for brides.
This Spring Haute Couture should not be missed because it has all the ingredients that a woman of any age  would enjoy through and through.
