Perhaps a philosophy and theology themed blog should stay faraway from fashion, but let’s forget the norms of what go together and bring a little variety here for the evening. I like to share beautiful things from paintings, to photography, to music, so tonight it’s gowns.
I have very little style, at least if I do it doesn’t show. I have taste though, and this is what I like: grace, elegance, sparkle, lace, silk, beads and anything else which exudes femininity. To me the Lebanese fashion designer Elie Saab encompasses all of this in the gowns he designs.
A Wikipedia articles says about him,
“Saab is self-trained. He started sewing as a child and knew that one day he would make a living out of it. In 1981 he moved to Paris to study fashion, but ended up returning and opening his workshop in 1982.”
I was thrilled to read he was self-trained. The ambition, determination, and hard work I’m sure it took to train himself and use his talent excellently is admirable and inspiring, to say the least.
(I would like to also mention some of the gowns are too see-through, in my opinion.)
