Elie Saab’s Fall 2009 couture show was fit for a (snow) queen. All of the models wore exquisite beautiful white dresses with elaborate detailing.

Unfortunately, Elie Saab’s Fall 2009 couture show did not come without controversy. Many of the fashion elite compared this show to Lagerfeld’s all-white couture offering a season earlier, and didn’t hesitate to comment.

Implications - As the number of dark designs grow each day, consumers are looking for more simple styles. Products that feature a classic look are appealing to those who want to be reminded of simpler times. In order to draw in more customers, companies could incorporate a subtler aesthetic into their items.
