ART MEETS FASHION: ELIE SAAB AT FOUR SEASONS HOTEL GEORGE V, PARIS
We absolutely adore ELIE SAAB and were glued to the catwalk yesterday as his exquisite lace embellished ready-to-wear SS 2014 collection made its debut in Paris!
As part of a temporary exhibition and celebration of Paris Fashion Week, Four Seasons Hotel George V welcomes the latest ELIE SAAB Haute Couture designs until Sunday, October 6, 2013 (You can see our favourites which we previously blogged here).
For the occasion, eight ELIE SAAB dresses from the latest Fall-Winter 2013-2014 Haute Couture Collection are displayed in the lobby of the Hotel.
The exhibition has been curated by Jeff Leatham, artistic director of the hotel for the past 14 years. Jeff is renowned internationally for having revolutionized floral artwork and for his spectacular flower arrangements.
In the Hotel lobby, six ruby-red and silvery grey evening gowns have been put on show like precious royal jewels, presented on mirrored plexiglas podiums and encircled by 15,000 red Naomi roses. At the centre, beneath a Florentine crystal chandelier, stands a majestic gown made of silk tulle and lace with a cape embroidered with crystal, sequins and fine beads. The regal wedding dress and its matching veil are exhibited at the entrance to the hallway. The tulle gown is entirely embroidered with semi-precious stones, beads and crystals and is surrounded by 9,000 Avalancheroses.
Regularly applauded as the best hotel in the world, Four Seasons Hotel George V confirms its leading reputation with this unique collaboration between ELIE SAAB and Jeff Leatham, and is delighted to offer this exhibition as a celebration of fashion week to its guests.
