Paris Haute Couture Ball – Elie Saab Fall 2012 On Wednesday Elie Saab launched his Fall 2012 Haute Couture collection in Paris. Opening with a caftan shape in embroidered black tulle, there was a  superb array of embroidered black gowns in tulle, lace and georgette. Pearls glistened alongside sequins in intricate shapes. In typical Saab style he used a palette of champagne, pink and sky blue. Saab used delicate fabrics and intricately detailed embellishments of  thousands of beads, sequins, and crystals. The silhouette was no surprise with the collection almost entirely made up of cocktail dresses and evening gowns fit for the red- carpet. See more Fashion News or Fashion Events articles.
