Introduction to the Fabulous Elie Saab
Most eight-year old boys are more interested in the typical male-driven entertainment, and perhaps following after their fathers. This however, was not the case of Elie Saab, a young boy born in Beirut and, self-taught when it came to sewing, patterns, and how to design absolutely divine fashion. By using his sister to model his designs Saab soon became enamoured with the fashion industry, and was convinced at a young age that this was what gave his life purpose. After that there was no stopping his rise to fame. He studied fashion in Paris, and by the age of 18 had returned to Beirut to begin his own fashion label with no less than fifteen employees.
