Zuhair Murad’s spring couture outing is a gorgeous collection and it is an emotional statement by the designer. It speaks directly about his love of his home country Lebanon, which has gone through a lot of political turmoil lately. “For a while I’ve been torn up by intense feelings about this eternally troubled country. I finally realized how deeply rooted I am in this land, which I will never leave,” Murad said.

The designer also noted that this collection is above all intended as a message of hope.

Gowns symbolize beauty and fantasy.

Weddings are moving forward among Murad’s clientele. His studio also has received commissions for the Oscars and for Cannes, which this year will take place in July. People are getting ready for red carpet dress again.
