"A Lace Garden" Elie SAAB Spring Summer 2014

I had such high hopes for Elie Saab's spring summer 2014 collection and BOY did he deliver!
He went back to the garden, "A Lace Garden", for inspiration, which as you probably know from my past drawings that I love anything to do with delicate flowers and intricate lace, so for me this has to be one of his best collections to date.
I wanted to draw every single piece from his whole collection but with so much work to do and SO little time, I had to chose just one piece.
The black lace dresses at the end of Elie Saab's show absolutely stole the show. This part of the show was like a garden full of blooms captured at midnight. The needlepoint lace used is just exquisite, so I probably chose one of THE hardest gowns to illustrate but it was definitely worth it!
I hope you like my final illustration pictured above, it was completed using pencil and watercolour.
Here are some more of my favourites from Elie Saab's SS14 collection.
