Description
Self-taught fashion designer Elie Saab’s interest in dressmaking started at age nine, when he began making clothes for his sisters, and as an adolescent he was selling his creations to the women in his neighborhood. In 1982 he opened his couture atelier in Beirut; he soon presented his first collection and instantly won critical attention.

His reputation rapidly transcended borders, and high-society women the world over desired an Elie Saab dress. In 2002, Halle Berry was wearing one of his gowns when she accepted the Oscar for best actress, and Elie Saab became a household name. In 2007 he established a flagship haute couture salon and boutique in Paris, but Beirut remains the soul of his inspiration, where the company has a modern five-story building housing the workshops, studios, ready-to-wear boutique, and couture showroom.

The designer magnifies femininity, building his fairy-tale creations with the nest materials, intricately detailed hand-embroidery, and a sophisticated fusion of cultural in influences. Saab’s specialty is the ultimate dress that highlights a woman’s silhouette, making him a go-to designer for international stars and royalty—including Angelina Jolie, Celine Dion, Kate Winslet, Princess Victoria of Sweden, and Princess Charlotte of Monaco.

Brimming with gorgeous imagery, including original photography by the esteemed Laziz Hamani, this oversize Assouline edition is presented in a luxury slipcase.
