FASHION BEYOND BORDERS

By Linda Nuamah

While Middle Eastern fashionistas are craving for Western designers, Lebanon has his own rising star that goes beyond borders.

Based in the Lebanese capital, Beirut, Zuhair Murad has become a household name among celebrities. Shortly after obtaining a fashion degree in Paris, Zuhair Murad moved back to Beirut and opened his first store in the early 90’s. In 1999 Zuhair Murad entered the international stage and showed his collection on the catwalks of Rome, and in 2001 at the Paris fashion week.

With high emphasis on clean cut sophistication and an ode to old Hollywood glamour, Zuhair Murad was quickly noticed by celebrity stylists as the up-and-coming fashion designer. Celebrities like Beyoncé, Eva Longoria, Jennifer Lopez, Blake Lively, and many others have been praised for their red carpet appearance in a Zuhair Murad creation.

Zuhair Murad’s creations are inspired by the jewels and beauty of his hometown, Beirut, a city also known as the Paris of the Middle East. The rich history, the Mediterranean feel, and the cultural diversity are all embraced in the beautiful details in his designs.

To wear Zuhair Murad is to live the 1001 Arabian nights’ moment. The women of Beirut take pride in their day-to-day appearance of dressing up to perfection. With this in mind, I cannot wait to see more of this rising star of the Middle East.
