Elie Saab Exhibition at Four Seasons George V Paris

If you happen to be in Paris during the fashion week, you might be tempted to visit Elie Saab’s pop-up exhibition hosted by the Four Seasons George V Hotel in Paris. The presentation showcases Elie Saab’s latest Haute Couture designs, and opens today, Tuesday 24th September – running until Sunday 6th October 2013.

The exhibition has been curated by Jeff Leatheam, Creative Director of the hotel since 14 years. On display is a selection of eight Elie Saab silhouettes from the Autumn-Winter 2013/14 Haute Couture collection. Jeff Leatham 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 plexiglass 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 Avalanche roses.
