If there is one show I get the most excited at seeing at Fashion Week it is always without a doubt Elie Saab. Elie Saab is known for his beautiful detailed gowns worn by a host of celebrities at red carpet events. Lets just say if I could only ever own one piece of designer clothing, an Elie Saab dress would be top of the list every time! Every collection has impressed me incredibly with his range of exquisite clothing and this Fall 2015 collection seemed pretty good too…
There was no doubting over whether this was a collection for Fall as the show opened to an array of dark shades with all-black styles and the odd splash of khaki green. The start of the show was very sophisticated and echoed a smart work wear style with a slight nod to military style. For this part of the show the focus was on the structure and silhouette of the pieces before things started to get a tad more creative. Flashes of blue and teal shades appeared alongside floral and forest like prints.
The style then changed from work style to more glamour and femininity. Floral patterns, lacy patterns and embellished details starting to take shape on the runway. This is when the real Elie Saab we know and love came back to life. Embellished brighter toned gowns started to form the end of the show. There really is no other way to describe the pieces than stunning, as usual each and every piece was a beauty. If I’m honest, it wasn’t my favourite Elie Saab collection but it was still a dreamy collection! Check out the rest of the collection here.
If you have read my posts from previous seasons then you will see I am a huge fan of Elie Saab, I mean c’mon who isn’t! There is never a season were he fails to deliver, its spot on every season and this time is no exception. There was a little bit of a sporty vibe through some of the pieces in a subtle way with swimsuit inspired structures which matched the ‘Dive into the Deep Blue’ theme. It was also a very nice follow on from the previous seasons with similar patterns and structures however being slightly updated for the new season. There was a lot of lace inserts and cut-outs aswell as 70s style silhouettes which all appear to be big for SS15 – watch out! Again another fabulous collection from Saab, can I have it all please! 🙂
Not that long ago Couture fashion week for Fall 2014 kicked off in the fashion capital: Paris. Couture week has to be my favorite for the glamour and exquisite gowns. And one designer who I absolutely adore and matches this description very nicely is Elie Saab. As usual this collection was perfection and I have no faults or negatives to say. The whole collection was designed for Night with stunning gowns and embellished cocktail dresses. Saab experimented with pearls and ombre effects which linked to his Fall 2014 RTW collection were it also made an appearance. Overall a beautiful collection, if only I could get my hands on all these dresses! What do you think of this collection? The rest of the collection can be viewed at Style.com.
Fashion Week is nearly over but for now we are still in Paris for the final Fall 2014 shows. Yesterday, red carpet favorite Elie Saab took to the runway. The collection was typical Saab style with stunning sparkling, plunge and chiffon gowns. Of course however Saab introduced new twists to his collection one being his choice of color with darker shades of burgundy, plum and a rose shade all completed with an ombre effect. The collection also featured the use of velvet as well as print with a soft floral design based on a black background. Overall another beautiful and slightly different collection from Saab.

Its quite sad at this time as Fashion Week is coming to a close however usually in these last few days Paris puts on some spectacular shows. Yesterday saw the prestigious Elie Saab collection take to the runway which has been the moment I have been looking forward to the most during fashion week. This man does it again, again and again, there is never a time were I could fault an Elie Saab collection in any way as each piece is always tailored and embellished to absolute perfection and this collection is no exception. It was described as ‘A Lace Garden’ and it matched that to a tee with rosy pinks, flower embellishments and a floral print. There was a nice variety within the collection with cute flowing summer dresses, red carpet looks and formal work-wear. The collection was nicely complete with a selection of black lace dresses somehow taking on the underwear for outerwear trend. Overall a beautiful collection! Below are some pieces from the collection. What do you think of this collection? The rest of the collection can be viewed at Style.com
Paris Fashion Week came to a stunning close yesterday with the final Fall 2013 Couture collections taking to the runway. I have to admit there was a lot of excitement about yesterdays show for myself as one of my favorite designers was back on the runway who of course is the fantastic Elie Saab. This man never fails to impress with another after another spectacular collection and this time was no exception. Looking at the collection for the first time I was actually speechless, I have never seen such a perfect collection of clothes. It is always likely that looking at any designer collection you may find at least one piece of clothing that you are not fond of but for this Elie Saab collection I cant actually criticize any piece of clothing as every piece is pure perfection. The collection was royalty with a colour theme of ruby, emerald, and sapphire and gowns were sparkling with fine bead-work and embellishments. With these exquisite designs I really do wish I was a famous celebrity so I could have the opportunity to strut my stiff in one of these gowns on the red carpet. This man is the wonder of fashion and completely in a league of his own. Spectacular. Are you a fan of this collection ? To see all the runway shots go to Style.com. Credit to Style.com for images.

Fashion Week came to a stunning close this week as Elie Saab took to the runway for the final show. There was a lot of anticipation for this show not only as it was the finale of Fashion Week for Fall 2013 but this was Elie Saab, the man with the breathtaking designs who wows us every-time and this collection was no exception. For day-wear, Saab stuck to Navy and dark tones to create tailored and sleek looks with fitted jackets and wide peplums. For evening wear, things livened up a bit with brighter tones of limes and teals aswell as his usual detailed embellishments. Saab experimented a lot with lace and sheer tulle to create a more seductive look which he achieved very well in this collection. Overall, I feel that every season at Fashion Week I am always expecting to say that Elie Saab was the best of them all and that his collections will keep getting better and better and I have to admit I am very correct as all the time my expectations are getting higher and this is because the quality and the designs are always getting better. Elie Saab is one of a kind. Here below are some shots from the runway show. Are you a fan of this collection ? To see all the runway shots go to Style.com. Credit to Style.com for images.

So thats a wrap on the Spring 2013 Fashion Weeks so to complete the lot, At Paris Fashion Week earlier this week Elie Saab showed off his collection to close the show. As always Elie Saab put on an amazing show with breathtaking and jaw-dropping designs which we are all hopeful to see on the red carpet in time to come. Elie Saab is definitely one of my favorite designers and has been for a while now, he never fails with any collection and always has the most beautiful designs we would all dream of wearing. This collection had some workwear and business inspired looks with shirts buttoned to the top, pencil skirts and belted pocketed trousers aswell as neatly fitted dresses suitable for the office. But aswell as the office wear as usual there was the red carpet gowns that are just spectacular. This red shimmering dress as seen on Tian Yi (picture below) is just stunning and a piece i would love to see at the Oscars. There was also a variety of shorter dresses but still lived up to the sparkling party inspiration great for a special night out. My favorite though had to be the blue number worn by Nastya Kusakina nearer the end of the show, it was just lovely especially the amazing design on the top of the dress with the shirt look to it. Overall for me just wow! Elie Saab is always a favorite for me at Fashion week and this time is no exception! Below are some pictures from the show.
