We all recognise an Elie Saab design as soon as our eyes glance at it, and this collection has not changed my views on this fabulous designer at all! Looking at the gowns from the show remind me of something from a Disney movie, think Sleeping Beauty when she is rescued by the Prince from her tower. The ‘ball gown’ has always been an element of Saab’s designs with their entricite detailing.
Having once stuck to quite neutral colours we can now see that Saab has begun to experiment with bold colours such as blue in her designs. The lighting casted blue shadows over the runway which added to the dramatic effect of the blue gowns he sent his models down the catwalk in.
The flower detailing seems to stick and be a feature of Elie Saab’s designs that do not seem to be changing. They are the element that makes his dresses stand out from the crowd and they are recognised merely for this.
