Elie Saab – A Lebanese Treasure

In Culture, Fashion on October 22, 2012 at 9:39 pm

I can’t believe it’s been more than a year since my last post. A lot has happened, I won’t bore you with details.

My post today is for Lebanon, my Lebanon, the Lebanon I know and I love.

Saddened by the latest events in Beirut, I would like to shed some positive light on one of Lebanon’s creative treasures: Elie Saab.

Elie Saab, started dressmaking since the age of 9 and now he is one of the world’s most renown designers. Angelina Jolie, Katy Perry, Jessica Biel, Katie Holmes and Princess of Sweden are some of the stars and royals that wore Elie Saab.

Most recently, Princess Stephanie of Luxembourg wore an ivory Chantilly lace, satin organza 3/4 sleeve wedding gown by Elie Saab Couture for her wedding to Prince Guillaume of Luxembourg.

I would like to dedicate my first post for 2011 to my country, Lebanon, more specifically to some lebanese designers.George Hobeika, Elie Saab and Zuhair Murad who showcased a bit of Lebanese talent at the Golden Globes red carpet.

George Hobeika creations are all about femininity and sensuality. Jane Fonda looked stunning in a sharp shouldered George Hobeika dress embellished with gold and silver sequins.

Elie Saab has become synonymous with luxury and modernism. In a plunning blush Elie Saab gown Scarlett Johansson rocked the red carpet.

Zuhair Murad is the epitome of Middle Eastern glamour, fashion and design. Jennifer Lopez and Christina Agulera looked so chic and glamourous in their Zuhair Murad’s gowns.

 

When it comes to fashion Lebanon takes home the oscar!

My love for shoes!

Since I was a little girl I loved shoes! I believe I inherited my addiction from my grandpa. I remember going with him to his favourite shoe store in Jounieh (Beirut, Lebanon) and looking at shoes. One day he came back home with two new pairs and realized he has bought the same ones couple of weeks ago.
You can never have enough shoes. I always try to rationalize my shoe purchase; new job, business presentation, party… But come on, who am I kidding? First of all you don’t need an occasion to buy a new pair of shoes and second of all your purchase should never be rationalized! Where is the fun in that?
For my birthday last week, I bought my first pair of Fluevogs (they won’t be my last pair for sure).  Did you know that John Fluevog is an actual person? I didn’t, until I checked out the brand. John Fluevog makes cool, funky, crazy and good quality shoes. Some might think that his designs are very weird, but as he puts it “No you’re weird”.  His shoes are definitely unusual, and that’s what makes them interesting and unique. It doesn’t matter if you don’t know how to spell the name; you are not the only one! Check out the website and indulge yourself with a pair or two or more.
