Because I don’t know much about this designer, but I’ve seen his shows lately and I think they’re very very nice. Lets learn some more!
July 4, 1964 – Still Alive!
Born in Beirute, Lebanon
Eldest of 5 and child to Catholic parents, Elie was born and raised in a southern coastal Beirut suburb. He self taught himself how to sew since he was a child.
At only age 18, Saab launched his own fashion label with 15 other employees. At first his expertise was in bridal gowns. His unique designs made him stand out – lots of lace, embroidery patterns, pearls & crystals.
In 1997, Saab showed his frist collection outside of Lebanon in Rome. The following year he started his Ready-to-Wear collection in Milan which was followed two years laters by having Queen Rania of Jordan wear an Elie Saab dress for her enthornment (who that is? I have no clue lol but obviously someone important).
One of dresses even sold of 2.4 million!!!
Now personally, I have seen Saab’s wedding dress designs and they really are exquisite! I am definitely a ES fan now and will continue to always look out for his shows!
