ELIE SAAB exhibition GEORGES V paris
Get a Paris DOSE of couture drama up close. In celebration of Paris Fashion week, designer ELIE SAAB‘s designs are on display in a pop-up hosted by the famous Four Seasons George V Hotel in Paris. The exhibition is curated by the hotel’s creative director Jeff Leatheam, who is renowned internationally for having revolutionized floral artwork. On display will be eight ELIE SAAB silhouettes from the fall 2013-14 Haute Couture collection.
Ruby-red and silvery evening gowns have been put on show like precious royal jewels, presented on mirrored plexiglass podiums and encircled by 15,000 red Naomi roses… how fantastic! In the center, beneath a Florentine crystal chandelier, stands a majestic gown made of silk tulle and lace with a cape embroidered with crystals, sequins and fine beads. The regal wedding dress and its matching veil are exhibited at the entrance. The tulle gown is entirely embroidered with semi-precious stones, beads and crystals and is surrounded by 9,000 Avalanche roses.
The George V unique collaboration with ELIE SAAB and Jeff Leatham celebrates fashion week extravagance through October 6, 2013. Here’s a look at the magnificent gowns. Commentary by Brigitte Segura.
