In 1982, Saab launched his Beirut-based fashion label when he was 18 years old. His main workshop is in Lebanon. He also has workshops in Milan and Paris.

Born to Maronite Catholic parents in Beirut, Saab is self-trained. He started sewing as a child and knew that one day he would make a living out of it. In 1981 he moved to Paris to study fashion, but ended up returning and opening his workshop in 1982.

In 1997 Saab was the first non-Italian designer to become a member of the Italian Camera Nazionale della Moda, and in 1997, showed his first collection outside Lebanon in Rome. In 1998, he started ready-to-wear in Milan, and in the same year, he held a fashion show in Monaco which was attended by Princess Stéphanie of Monaco.

His creations can be found all over the world, with boutiques located in Beirut, Paris and London (Harrods).

Saab's most famous creation is the dress actress Halle Berry wore to the 2002 Oscar Ceremonies. It is considered until today as the most beautiful dress worn in Oscar history. He has also dressed notable celebrities such as Beyoncé, Aishwarya Rai, Anna Kendrick, Christina Aguilera, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Queen Rania of Jordan, Angelina Jolie, Celine Dion and many more.
