Last night for the first time the world got a live glimpse into the world of Elie Saab Haute Couture as the Spring Summer 2013 show was streamed over the web. I watched in awe as floor-skimming gowns in shimmering embellishment were sent down the runway. Lebanese-born designer Elie Saab titled his collection "An Ode to Delicateness", playing with transparency and delicate embellishment, on the most exquisite lace and soft tulle.
Elie Saab's fairytale collection in soft lilac, ivory and powdery blue works perfectly for bridal for those wanting to step away from traditional white, while the tea length dresses and beaded gowns in jet black and rich red hues offer dreamy inspiration for your bridesmaids! I absolutely loved the elegance of long sleeves balanced with sheer illusion necklines or transparent skirts… sleeves are definitely a strong look for bridal this year and perfect for those looking for winter wedding inspiration!
