I am sure a lot of you are wondering why I would write such a title on one of my blog posts but I just had to come up with a more catchy title than ‘ELIE SAAB AUTUM/WINTER HAUTE COUTURE COLLECTION 2013-2014’, boring right? Anyhoo, it is definitely safe to assume that I am officially obsessed with Elie Saabs designs. Yep! I am guilty and proud.
Elie Saab is a self taught Lebanese Fashion Designer born in 1964 who began making clothes at the age of 9 when he began selling his pieces to women in his neighborhood.
Elie Saab in my opinion is one of the finer designers for weddings and special occasions and I can’t seem to find any fault in his color palette choices which consists of neutrals, nudes, golds, metallics and earthy tones such as red, burgundies and rich browns.
His Autumn/Winter collection is certainly outstanding and he definitely pushed the boundaries a bit.
A lot of Elie Saab’s designs feature plunging necklines, however, these necklines are tastefully executed (not tacky, heck no…) and paired with the light, ethereal fabrics and the right amount of detailing, absolute perfection!
I am certainly keeping my eyes peeled on this designer as an option for my wedding dress (start saving hubby, wherever you are! lol) as I am a lover of mettallics and I refuse to be limited to traditional color choice options (talk about risk taker!!! *woot*).
Are you ready to become Elie’s bi$#h too…or not so much? Please share your thoughts.
Till next time,
Stay Organically Beautiful.
