Finishing up Paris Fashion Week with glitz and glamour, celebrity favourite designer Zuhair Murad stole the show with his stunning couture. Seen as the new Ellie Saab, Lebanon’s most established designer has been quickly dominating Hollywood’s red carpet, with stars like Jennifer Lopez, Taylor Swift and Kristen Stewart, all budding fans of the brand.
With a backdrop of the romantic Garden of Eden, Murad embraced the female figure by clinching model’s waists in golden leaves and wrapping curves in full skirts and peplum detail. Luxurious fabrics of flowing organza, fine lace and intricate embroidery floated down the catwalk.
“A treasure house of enchantment, the collection is a cornucopia of camellias, roses, sweetbriar, peonies, gentian and laurel with, here and there, a lithe touch of the feline and the caress of heavenly plummage.” – Zuhair Murad
A fresh colour palette with floral notes of soft lavender, alabaster white, heavenly pinks and injections of metallic shimmer—Murad brought a magical paintbox to life.
