I wish you in 2012 everything the best, correct decisions, sweet moments and happiness! Wear white :))) I selected some looks i like from 2011 FallRTW and some of 2012 masterpieces. Check this out:

Elie Saab [Spring 2011-Haute Couture]

14 Feb

Just a few days ago i discovered some beautiful fashion collection. Perfectly amazing one i would say. This “airy” collection is unique. Nude, peach, violet, black colors are so right for these dresses type. I think every woman would feel like a princess, so comfortable, unique, beautiful, feminine, innocent in such a dress. When i first saw this collection i felt in love with it… I would like to wear something like this on my prom night. Now let’s find out something about the designer, who’s name is Elie Saab. He was born in Lebanon, Beirut on 4th july 1964. When he was 18 years old he launched his Beirut based fashion label. His main workshop is in Lebanon, but he also has workshops in Milan and Paris [something usual for such a great designer]. Like Jason Wu [from my previous post], Elie started sewing as a child and his dream was to become a fashion designer. When he was 17 years old he moved to Paris to study fashion. In 1997 he was the first non Italian designer who became a member of the Italian Camera Nazionale della Moda, and then he had his first fashion show. He became an overnight success after he became the first Lebanese designer to dress and Oscar winner, Halle Berry in 2002. Berry wore a burgundy gown by Saab to the 2002 Academy Awards when she won for Best Actress. In 2003 he was invited by The Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture to become a member and that year he showed his first haute couture collection. ES’s clients are Beyonce [my favorite singer], Anna Kendrick, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Halle Berry, Angelina Jolie, Rihanna, Scarlet Johansson, Kristen Stewart etc. So let’s see what does ES propose to us for this spring!
