Fashion Spotlight: Zuhair Murad

Tuesday, 20 December 2011

Hi girlies! I have to admit I'm not the most fashionable person in the world but I do love looking at all the gorgeous couture dresses on the red carpet and so I wanted to share with you my absolute favourite fashion designer - Zuhair Murad. He is a Lebanese designer based in Beirut. After studying in Paris and gaining some recognition internationally he opened his first atelier in Beirut in 1995. He is a relative newcomer to fashion scene but through his stunning couture he has established a high reputation.

His style has been described as reminiscent of Egyptian princesses and Greek goddess which I agree with but I can also see his eastern background reflected in his couture. I love the flowing fabrics which remind me of Indian sari's, embroidery details reminiscent of mehandi (henna) designs and the elegant colours used all centred around emphasising the beauty of womens silhouette.

Below are some of his pieces worn by celebrities on the red carpet. I would really love to hear about your favourite designers or dresses that you have seen and have fallen in love with!
