Zuhair Murad is a Lebanese fashion designer who stirred up quite a storm in the fashion world ever since he showcased his clothes for the first time. He is considered to be the epitome of Middle Eastern fashion, glamour and style. His unique creations are defined by a certain oriental essence which only highlights their beauty. Zuhair Murad is without a doubt, one of the most impressive fashion designers of the moment. What has begun as a little boy’s dream is now a small fashion empire with global recognition.
Zuhair Murad was born in 1971 in Baalbek, Lebanon where he also grew up. He moved to Paris to study fashion as he started sketching dresses at the young age of 10. He returned to his homeland in 1997 and opened up his first atelier in Beirut, catering to a private clientele.
The year 1999 brought about his first fashion week , Alta Roma Fashion Week but only in 2001 did the international acclaim arise. It was then that Zuhair Murad showcased his couture collection at the Paris Fashion Week and gained momentum. He was starting to be considered one of the most impressive designers both in Italy and France.
Since his first couture collection, Zuhair Murad continuously improved his technique. The shape and silhouette of his couture collection can now be compared to those of other famous couturiers in history. He has a talent for combining the rich colors of his Oriental homeland with the elegance of Europe which makes him a couture fashion star. Of course, Zuhair Murad’s collections are not only couture but also prêt-a-porter. He also designs a line of accessories and eyewear.
Without any further ado, I invite you to enjoy some of his designs for spring-summer 2014 below. What do you think of Zuhair Murad? We’d love to read your thoughts in the comment section!
