Elie Saab was born July 4, 1964 and is a Lebanese fashion designer.
The name Elie Saab is not instantly recognisable, but you’re sure to have seen his creations on the red carpet. Commissions have been been pouring in since he dressed Queen Rania of Jordan for her coronation, and Halle Berry for the Oscars.
Selling 1000 couture dresses and 200 wedding dresses a year, and with more than a dozen clients visiting his salon to place orders during Haute Couture Fashion Week alone, this is a designer who is on the up.
At Saab, the loud colour palettes and extravagant use of sequins so beloved by his fellow Lebanese designers, have been ditched in favour of a more Parisian refinement.
In May 2003, Elie Saab couture was invited to show his collections with the Syndical Chamber for Haute Couture.
