Who is Elie Saab?
Elie Saab was born in Beirut on July 4, 1964, to a stay-at-home mother and a timber merchant father. Nothing predestined him then to become a recognized stylist. Nevertheless, he developed a passion for sewing at an early age and began cutting his own patterns from his mother's tablecloths and curtains when he was barely nine years old. He thus drew models for his sisters. It is therefore in all logic and following this precocious vocation that Elie Saab embarked on studies of styling. However, given his already extensive knowledge, he has a particularly boring memory of this course. He then decided to found his own fashion house in Beirut when he was barely 18 years old. A few months later, he presented his first collection, composed of very feminine dresses. His fame was immediate and did not take long to go beyond the borders of Lebanon. Thus, in 1997, Elie Saab paraded for the Italian fashion week. A year later, he began to open stores all over the world, in Paris, London, Madrid, Moscow, Los Angeles and even Hong Kong. In this continuity, he chose to settle in Paris, in 2002, in the heart of the golden triangle, receiving a rich and international clientele.
