Zuhair Murad is a Beirut-based Lebanese fashion designer.
In 1995, Zuhair Murad opened his first atelier in Beirut and not long after has established a very high reputation in the international fashion scene. What began as a mere hobby soon turned into an empire of unique sophistication and revered fashion. "Ever since I was a child, I used to imagine designs for imaginary clients. I have always loved to work in the word of luxury and design...As my country in well known for its natural beauty...that expertise...made me fall into the world of haute couture," Murad has said. Zuhair Murad's lavish creations, in sensational colors and extraordinary fabrics, are reminiscent of Egyptian princesses, Grecian goddesses and pure, glorious splendor, complete with an edgy twist that modernizes his collections just enough.
Zuhair Murad's extensive lines encompass haute couture, ready-to-wear,
accessories and eyewear. Plans to expand the fashion line are underway to
include beauty products, perfumes, swimwear and lingerie as well as furnisher.
