The self-taught fashion talent Elie Saab is born in 1964 in Lebanon. Couturier since the young age, his interest in dressmaking started at the age of 9, already making clothes for his sisters.
The designer magnifies femininity working with fine materials, delicate embroideries with outstanding quality. He builds his fairytale creations using simple designs, precious resources, whilst always maintaining a form of sophistication? Elie Saab dazzles with his intricate detail and strong sense of beauty.

Beirut remains his main source of inspiration, it is where he’s founded in 1982, at just the age of 18 then maintained his studio. The Elie Saab atelier is where all the Haute Couture grows are made and passed through the hand of the designer. It is the sole heart of the savoir-faire and excellence of his achievement. His reputation rapidly transcended Beirut’s borders, attracting women all around the world.
From the ultra-delicate and weightless, to the sophisticated, yet traditional, Ellie Saab never stops amazing us. Empire-line minidresses, chiffon-draped princess gowns with additional chiffon sashes at the neck, sheer bejewelled sheaths with skinny belted waists and extraordinary wedding gowns, this was about dreamy fashion that transcends continents, age, trend or season. That is what Elie Saab offers us in the spring summer 2014 collection.
“Women often ask me for dresses like the bridal one I showed today,” said Elie Saab after this show. “They want their dreams to come true and that’s what we try to do.”
