The Haute Couture Autumn Winter 2015-2016 Collection presented in Paris was a regal display of gold, from the elaborate headpieces to the final wedding gown. It pays homage to a hue that is close to the Maison, where a single thread weaves together a history perpetually inspired by gold.
Elie Saab has built its over thirty-year heritage upon the art of Haute Couture, constructing one-of-a-kind dresses for individual women in exceptional moments of their lives.
And no dress, amongst all that Elie Saab has constructed, remains as important for the designer than that created for his wife: in 1990, Claudine Saab walked down the aisle in an exquisitely embroidered golden wedding gown, designed at the hands of her future husband.
July 4th, 2015, marked the 25th anniversary of the marriage of Mr. and Mrs. Saab and in celebration of this moment, the wedding gown of the latest Haute Couture collection paid homage to that of Claudine’s.
Twenty craftsmen worked on the creation of the gown that took over 600 hours to complete. With its voluminous full skirt embroidered with gold silk thread and floral appliqués, the final Autumn Winter 2015-2016 wedding gown was a vision of love.
