His luxury brand partnered with Saudi real estate fi rm Dar Al Arkan in November 2023 to launch Etoile by Elie Saab – the company’s first branded residence in the kingdom. His eponymous brand has grown exponentially over the years and has been dominating the global haute couture market, with ateliers in London, Paris and Beirut.

The brand’s diversified lines range from ready-to-wear and bridal to accessories, eyewear, children’s wear, watches, and fragrances. Other recent ventures include Elie Saab MAISON, a lineup of furniture, lighting, rugs and home accessories.
