Donated by Elie Saab
Through this Haute Couture Spring-Summer 2015 collection, Beirut Chasing a Dream, Elie Saab intended to share his vision of Beirut, a place that continues to inspire his work. The ethereal fabric embodies his childhood's summer breeze, just like the soft green of his blooming springs. He paid homage to the people of this city who never stopped dreaming, who never stopped believing. With this collection, Elie Saab wished to celebrate Beirut by bringing its loving spirit, its elegance, and its douceur de vivre.

Retail price of this dress would be £70,000.
