Born and raised in Baalbek, Lebanon, Zuhair Murad began sketching dresses at the age of 10. He opened his first atelier in Beirut in 1997, making his name with couture creations before expanding to ready-to-wear evening looks. In 2011, he launched his ready-to-wear bridal collection of "timeless pieces where romanticism and sensuality are perfectly depicted in all his garments." His gowns blend classic bridal silhouettes with glamorous adornments, like floral embroidery, beading, ruffles, feathers, and lace. Scroll below to see recent and past collections from Zuhair Murad.
