Hi to all the bees 😉
I am getting married in next may, and i absolutely love all about elie saab. Specialy Elie Saab HAUTE COUTURE, spring-summer 2012 fashion… Since it is quote expensive and our budget is limited, I was wondering if any of you know about any used shops, sale shops for elie saab, dresses inspired by elie or replicas (i know, i know, it is not nice of me…)?

thanks, but since this collection is not particulary bridal, i cant find it anywhere, are there any sites selling designers clothes on big sales or preowned, that are not bridal?

@ilovetea: I have seen ES Haute Couture on these sites as MOB and bridesmaid dresses.
Godd luck in finding other sites.

Rent the Runway, perhaps?

@ilovetea: In case you’re still wondering, you can’t get Elie Saab Haute Couture off-the-rack (that’s partly why it’s HC–in addition to dozens/hundreds of hours of spent tediously hand-embroidering crazy-expensive fabrics). You have to purchase HC gowns at the actual show, special order from the fashion house directly, or commission a HC piece.
Saab’s HC gowns start at around $30,000 (but I have seen one go for $11k). So, I highly doubt you’ll find it on a used/preowned site (unless someone is willing to art with their OAK design).
You can, however, purchase an Elie Saab design from his RTW/couture collection (or via Pronovias Bridal). These are no less exquisite and will still cost a pretty penny.

I know GILT has had reem acra, vera wang and others for their ready wear and non bridal options, they dont offer everything just maybe a dozen of options if they do the more couture designers
