Elie Saab A Glamourous Fairy Tale

Some stories just read like fairy tales, so this might be one. Glamorous evening wear outfits are just one of the many designer styles of clothing that have come from the brilliant Lebanese fashion designer Elie Saab. ES as he is sometimes called, he is known for his Beirut based fashion company that he started at a mere eighteen years old. He has designed couture dress fashions for the Cannes film festival and the Oscars.


Being the first non-Italian designer to become part of Camera Nazionale della Moda, Elie Saab has had major fashion shows in Rome,Milan and Monaco where Princess Stéphanie was in attendance. Who was this young man and where did he come from, was the question that all the rest of the fashion world was instantly asking themselves.


The rest reads like some kind of fairy tale history in the world of art and fashion. ES continued to move forward at a furious pace to worldwide success. He is greatly sought after by the elite of Hollywood and film to design personal wardrobe selections.


The long list of celebrities that he has designed dresses for includes Beyoncé, Christina Aguilera, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Halle Berry, Angelina Jolie, Celine Dion, Kristen Stewart, Rihanna and Mila Kunis. Among the royalty that have entrusted their fashion choices to his sensibilities are Queen Rania of Jordan and Victoria the Crown Princess of Sweden. It is rare for someone as young as ES to break their way into the bigger art world of fashion design, but he did.


As if ES could have dreamed of bigger things than had already happened to him, then the ultimate honor came his way. The Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture invited him to become a member of their organization in 2003, which led to his own haute couture collection debuting in Paris that year. He now has his own permanent place on the ready-to-wear runway in Paris.


Elie Saab is more than just an overnight fashion industry success, he is a symbol of the magic that is the international world of fashion. Being born on the 4th of July seems to have had some magical influence on the good karma of this lucky man. It is a true fairy tale in the world that the rest of us just know from the glitz and glitter of the magazines. To ES it is magic, models and money.
