Elie Saab 2012 Resort Collection

Feast your eyes on this.

Elie Saab’s first-ever resort collection is bright but not overly so, fresh yet cut in timeless silhouettes, and just overall breathtaking. And these would be the perfect inspiration for your wedding attire. We’re seeing bridesmaids’ dresses and even your own wedding dress in white, off-white, or practically whatever colour you fancy.

Born and raised in Lebanon, this fashion genius began designing eveningwear and bridal gowns as a youngster. His talent and craftsmanship attracted such a wide following across the Middle East that even the Royalty wore his creations. In 1982, he opened his own flagship store in Beirut and has since then become much sought-after all over the world.

Elie Saab has held private fashion shows in Paris and Switzerland, and was the first non-Italian designer to present a haute couture collection at the Roma Alta Moda Week in 1997. His creations are often snapped up by some of Holywood’s A-listers, such as Nicole Kidman, Angelina Jolie, Kate Winslet, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Halle Berry, and Sarah Jessica Parker, among many others.

Here is Elie Saab’s very own Resort 2012 Collection…
