THE STORY OF THE VELVET ROPE

ELIE SAAB






Beautiful chiffon is seasoned with iridescent beads and dishevelled across the body, from the bust line to the waist, blowing gently as the model walks the runway. She floats as the lights above move over her, hopelessly lost on the model's silhouette, that is until the velvet rope arrives. Velvet made of woven tufted fabric, chosen in a mineral turquoise, is the unlikely hero sent to rescue her. She soon sits still, as she is softly fastened in at the waist, by a ribbon of velour. On the surface of the dress, the rough begins to dance with the smooth. They soon move as one; taking shade, beneath the ribs in a carmine red. Chiffon and her lustrous beads are no longer lost; once again free to roam the landscape of a woman's frame, all thanks to the velvet rope.
