Paris: Globally popular Lebanese fashion designer Elie Saab added an Indian zing to his Haute Couture Spring/Summer 2016 showcase here by taking inspiration from sari drapes and salwar kameez ensembles.
According to fashion-industry trade journal Women's Wear Daily, Saab gave his collection an Indian theme, "adding an exotic tinge to his sparkly gowns and cocktail dresses, swags of fabric over-the-shoulder telegraphing the gesture of a sari".
"The collection also unleashed a torrent of new elements, including silky pants, spangled salwar kameez ensembles, and breezy dusters," the online platform reported.
The show notes referenced Lilah Wingfield, an Anglo-Irish noblewoman who recorded her travels to Delhi and Udaipur in 1911, when Victorian silhouettes were yielding to the Edwardian period. 
Saab's world-famous creations have earlier been proudly flaunted by Indian actresses Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Katrina Kaif and Sonam Kapoor at the red carpet of the Cannes International Film Festival.
