by Elie Saab
When it comes to Haute Couture, there are few who can parallel the exceptional creativity of Lebanese designer Elie Saab. He showed off these breathtaking gowns at Paris Couture Fashion Week.
|Models swept the runway in romantic floor-length tea-rose toned evening gowns, made from vintage inspired fabrics, accented by soft ruffles and 3-D floral appliqués.|
|Shades of Spring were shown in an unusual aniseed green, layered lavender and watercolour print dresses. The floaty and feminine floral dresses were striking with large fabric flowers on the shoulder. Clinched waistlines were a big trend.|
|Classic black beaded gowns were reinvented with layers of sheer tulle, cap sleeves, embroidered black onyx and interesting necklines.|
|Ravishing red gowns with chiffon draped skirts made a splash of unexpected colour on the runway. Ethereal stone-gray gowns were embellished in exquisite hand-woven Chantilly lace and intricate beading.|
