BEIRUT, Lebanon — In an era where designers are celebrity personalities in their own right, Elie Saab prefers to let his designs speak for themselves.
Though well known in the Middle East since the Eighties, Hollywood’s love affair with Saab began with Halle Berry’s Oscar appearance in 2002. The image of Berry in the iconic figure hugging burgundy gown accepting her Best Actress Award was forever etched in people’s minds. So was the name of the designer — Elie Saab.
