The glam dressing is a casual way of life in the Middle East, as we all know by now. The women in our region are fascinating dressers, who more often than not, do not need stylists.
What comes with that great passion for fashion are the designers that have TRULY entered the global fashion scene, like Elie Saab and our very own Saudi designer Arwa Al Banawi.
It’s no wonder Hollywood celebs can’t get enough of the glitz and bedazzlement that these Arab designers bring:

And of course, Elie Saab
A name so familiar because of his lustrous dresses, iconic name and his line of fragrances that are oh-so-delectable to the Arab scent connoisseur.
Lebanon’s Elie Saab defo paved the way for more Arab designers to be noticed by stylists in Los Angeles, for that we thank him.
At the recent Golden Globes, Saab was worn not once, not twice but by more than six celebs including: Anne Hathaway, Lily Collins, Andie Macdowell, Emily Blunt and Zorro’s lead, Catherine Zeta Jones.
