Know Your Designers: Elie Saab

Labense designer Elie Saab, a newcomer in the haute couture world, continues to dazzle us with his wonderful gowns.  Elie Saab was first recognized by the fashion world when Halle Berry wore one of his dresses to the 2002 Academy Awards.  Halle and her dress got a lot of coverage that night, especially since she won Best Actress.

A year after the dress debuted on the red carpet, the Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture invited him to become a member and he showcased his collection that July in Paris.

What I love about Elie Saab is his use of texture and his knowledge of the female form.  His designs are flattering, sophisticated and feminine.
