Elie Saab wedding dresses

What can I say, but there are many fash­ion design­ers. And even wed­ding clothes are pre­sent­ed by a huge num­ber of fash­ion hous­es, design com­pa­nies and sep­a­rate­ly work­ing fash­ion design­ers. But not all of them man­aged to achieve such suc­cess and gath­er such a huge army of fans as Elie Saab.

About the designer

1964 was the year of birth for Elie Saab. From the age of six, he began to take an active inter­est in the world of fash­ion and cloth­ing mod­el­ing.

The first attempts to make a break­through and declare their tal­ents came in 1981. True, they were unsuc­cess­ful and Elie Saab came from Paris to return to his native Lebanon.

Elie Saab

First of all, a young and ambi­tious fash­ion design­er opened his own ate­lier, which cre­at­ed evening and wed­ding dress­es. They inter­twined the trends of the east and echoes of the west.

Excep­tion­al tal­ent and out­spo­ken courage allowed Eli to reveal his tal­ent, gain pop­u­lar­i­ty and win the favor of roy­al peo­ple.

You can make a decent list of those per­sons who appeared before a wide audi­ence in Elie Saab dress­es. And even when the Grand Duke of Lux­em­bourg Guil­laume led his beloved down the aisle, she was wear­ing a dress and veil cre­at­ed by Saab. And although the style was cho­sen as clas­sic, it was still dif­fi­cult to look away from the beau­ti­ful bride. But what can I say, if when watch­ing the usu­al sea­son­al shows it seems that not mod­els, but princess­es from fairy tales gath­ered on the cat­walk.

He was even accept­ed into the Nation­al Cham­ber of Fash­ion, although before they did not accept design­ers who did not have Ital­ian roots.

Peculiarities

Ini­tial­ly, the design­er took the direc­tion to use:

  • exclu­sive fab­rics;
  • lace from world col­lec­tions;
  • dec­o­ra­tive trim of embroi­dery, pearls and crys­tals.

In a word — every­thing that can be required to cre­ate tru­ly lux­u­ri­ous dress­es.

Look­ing through the works of Elie Saab, one can see his love for wide, puffy and lux­u­ri­ous skirts, bodices dec­o­rat­ed with draperies and roy­al trains along the length and dec­o­ra­tion.

Eli has always pri­or­i­tized the fem­i­nine sil­hou­ette. And thanks to the fab­rics, he only skill­ful­ly framed it and empha­sized the nec­es­sary ele­ments.

Great impor­tance is giv­en to the cut and choice of fab­rics, which the design­er him­self is engaged in. There­fore, any piece of fab­ric that is present in Elie Saab dress­es is of the high­est qual­i­ty.

The design­er rec­og­nizes the clas­sics, which also applies to the choice of col­or for a wed­ding dress. But Eli has her own col­or, which she con­sid­ers her own. He even gave this shade the name “dawn over Beirut.”

Not every bride can fit an Elie Saab wed­ding dress. It should be a roman­tic nature with fem­i­nin­i­ty, but at the same time with a char­ac­ter that is com­bined with ele­gance.

If your wed­ding takes place in the style of clas­sics or art deco, then you should not look for anoth­er fash­ion design­er. Although for a roy­al wed­ding or a glam­orous cel­e­bra­tion, it is also worth pick­ing up the appro­pri­ate out­fit from Elie Saab. Just keep your­self in con­trol, because it will be dif­fi­cult to cope with the desire to take with you sev­er­al dress­es from Saab’s bou­tique at once.

Collections

The Elie Saab brand annu­al­ly presents four lines, but only one of them is relat­ed not to evening fash­ion, but to wed­ding. The Elie by Elie Saab wed­ding line is pro­duced by the Span­ish com­pa­ny Pronovias, known on all con­ti­nents.

The design­er also cre­ates ready-to-wear wed­ding dress­es. By the way, future brides can choose not only wed­ding dress­es. Cou­turi­er out­fits and design­er acces­sories also deserve atten­tion.

Elie By Elie Saab 2013

Let’s go back to 2013 and the sen­sa­tion that the design­er’s col­lec­tion made. The clas­sics he chose did not pre­vent him from cre­at­ing lux­u­ri­ous out­fits that mirac­u­lous­ly empha­sized the smooth curves char­ac­ter­is­tic of the female fig­ure. Even the share of dreami­ness and romance was vis­i­ble through fab­rics and sil­hou­ettes.

The moment of decor was not for­got­ten either — dec­o­ra­tions were present in large quan­ti­ties on each mod­el. At the same time, they were diverse and har­mo­nious­ly matched. Bows and rib­bons, draperies and lace, sequins and pearls.

Two pri­ma­ry col­ors were clear­ly vis­i­ble in the col­lec­tion — ecru and ivory. As for fab­rics, their range was strik­ing in vari­ety: taffe­ta, organ­za, lace and Japan­ese silk. A large num­ber of mod­els have fluffy skirts, seduc­tive neck­lines and corsets.

Elie By Elie Saab 2014

Fash­ion Week 2014 did not pass with­out Elie Saab, who delight­ed fash­ion­istas with his beau­ti­ful cre­ations. Refine­ment and ele­gance were ded­i­cat­ed to his work with max­i­mum length.

For the most part, shiny ele­ments, embroi­dery on trans­par­ent fab­ric, weight­less lace, trans­par­ent organ­ic inserts served as start­ing mate­ri­als. In some dress­es, orig­i­nal com­bi­na­tions of col­ors and their most unusu­al shades come first.

The design­er remained faith­ful to the choice of fab­rics, so again one could see a rich assort­ment of open­work lace ele­ments, organ­za, taffe­ta and rare silk.

Of all the mod­els, flow­ers made of fab­ric or lace stood out. All this beau­ty is organ­i­cal­ly com­bined with a long veil.

Well, the col­lec­tion was com­plet­ed by such a chic dress that its lux­u­ry would suit the queen. The del­i­cate gold­en col­or echoed the expen­sive decor and caused a storm of delight. This mas­ter­piece was cre­at­ed by sev­er­al dozen mas­ters over the course of a month.

Elie By Elie Saab 2015

And final­ly, the 2015 col­lec­tion, which became a new vision of the old fairy tale about Cin­derel­la. Clas­sic and vin­tage — that’s what the mod­els were built on. Real princess­es walked along the cat­walk, car­ry­ing long trains behind them.

Each new mod­el that appeared, illu­mi­nat­ed even more with the mag­i­cal play of stones, amazed with skill­ful embroi­dery and amazed with flo­ral appli­ca­tions. The mate­ri­als ful­ly cor­re­spond­ed to the cre­at­ed images — if silk, then only mika­do, if lace, then exclu­sive­ly Chan­til­ly. The pres­ence of satin, taffe­ta, tulle and geor­gette was also vis­i­ble.

True, mod­els were pre­sent­ed with­out decor, but this did not pre­vent them from look­ing on par with rich­ly dec­o­rat­ed dress­es. Exquis­ite cuts, V‑shaped neck­lines that look com­plete­ly dif­fer­ent, draperies, pleats and a bare back accen­tu­ate the rich tex­ture of the fab­ric.

If a dress is cre­at­ed by Elie Saab, then it can only be as fem­i­nine as pos­si­ble, extreme­ly lux­u­ri­ous and unre­al­is­ti­cal­ly ele­gant. Mod­els are so beau­ti­ful and equal­ly afford­able that they become the choice of ordi­nary girls and world celebri­ties.
