This past Golden Globes, Zuhair Murad sent a number of celebrities down the red carpet in stunning dresses (two of which made it on my top eight best picks). The one dress that stood out to me the most was Olivia Culpo’s dress that included floral/geometric prints paired with structure, linework, and drape. It’s not impossible to see why Murad’s designs are so popular among many celebrities. His unique sense of style combined with elegance, class and above all, feminity is the definition of fashion.
But who is he?
Murad is a Lebanese designer who made his name dressing some of the most prominent faces in the acting and music industry. Making his debut on catwalks in Rome, Murad proved his potential and he was allowed to participate in many of Italy’s prominent fashion shows.
