Elie Saab known for his drop dead gorgeous gowns, is in fact a self-taught designer from Lebanon. His interest in dress-making started at the young age of 9. He began making clothes for his sisters and sold his creations to the neighborhood women.
In 1982, at 18 years of age, he opened his couture atelier in Beirut. His reputation soon transcended the borders of Beirut, attracting women from high society. His creations have since been worn by divas from Hollywood to Bollywood, with are very own Aishwarya Rai Bachchan.
The designer magnifies femininity by creating gowns with fine materials and delicate embroideries. His fairy tale gowns are simple, in design and ooze sophistication. His specialty lies in highlighting the woman’s silhouette.
India, is yet to see an Elie Saab store, perhaps with 100% FDI approved by the Indian Government in 2018, there maybe some hope.
