ELIE SAAB Fall 2015 Couture

With sparkling sequins, shimmering beading and full skirts, Lebanese designer Elie Saab presented dresses fit for princesses at his haute couture show in Paris on Wednesday.
A favorite among Hollywood actresses, Saab is known for his delicate, feminine designs and use of intricate embroidery in his gowns often seen on the red carpet. 
Inspired by his early work in the 1990s, the designer, who opened his couture atelier in Beirut at the age of 18, opened the show for his autumn-winter 2015/16 collection with gold floaty dresses adorned with embroidery depicting foliage and other motifs.

While gold was the recurrent color, the palette also included shades of pink, blue, and taupe before moving onto darker tones.
