Designer Focus: Zuhair Murad

11/07/2016


Ever since I started this series on my blog I had in mind one designer in particular that I really wanted to write about and that is- Zuhair Murad! Zuhair is one of my favorite designers of all times mostly because his designs look like something I would totally design and wear myself. I am sure a lot of you already heard of him before but no matter have you or haven't you we are going to get to know him and his work a little better in this post.

Još otkako sam započela ovu seriju postova na blogu znala sam da će se u jednome od njih sigurno naći jedan dizajner, a to je- Zuahir Murad! Zuhair je jedan od mojih omiljenih dizajnera svih vremena vjerojatno zbog činjenice da dizajnira stvari koje izgledaju kao nešto što bi ja sama dizajnirala pa i nosila. Sigurna sam da je dosta vas već čulo za njega no bez obzira na to jeste li ili niste idemo malo bolje upoznati njega i njegov rad.


Zuhair's story begins May, 15th, 1971. (which makes him 45 today)  in Baalbek, Lebanon where he was born. Ever since he was very young he loved drawing and sketching (esspecially dresses) and that love has always remained the same regardless of his age. “I don’t recall a day in my life without a pen in my hand!”- he said. In 1997, he opened his first atelier in Beirut and 2001 was the year his career started to really take off. It was the year he presented his first couture collection on Haute Couture Week in Paris. His career has been on a blast ever since and his work started to get more and more interest in the public eye. Besides owning haute couture boutiques in Beirut and Paris his creations are very often featured on red carpets of some of the biggest events of the year such as Oscars, Golden Globes, Cannes Film Festival and more. There is almost no female celebrity that has never wore Zuhair's creation at least on one occassion. The thing that's maybe not as well known is that besides ready-to-wear, couture and bridal collection, Zuhair also has a accesories collection which consists of shoes, bags and many interesting jewerly pieces.

His creations are very feminine and elegant, such a aesthetical pleasure. Very often they are eimbrodered with hand-sewn details that give such an amazing character to his pieces. It's so hard (read: impossible) to pick only few of his creations as your favourites cause every single one of them is so unique. I am always blown away by his work. More and more with each new collection. They are just a prefect reflection of my style. He is definitely not one of my favorite (if not my favorite) designer of all time for no reason. Now I am going to let you enjoy in pictures of Zuhair's amazing creations. Enjoy!

Zuhairova priča započinje 15. svibnja, 1971. godine (što bi značilo da danas ima 45 godina) u Baalkbeku u Libanonu gdje je rođen. Već je od djetinjstva volio crtati, skicirati (posebno haljine) i ta je ljubav uvijek ostajala ista bez obzira na njegove godine pa je već na neki način bilo jasno kojim će stopama krenuti. „Ne sjećam se jednog dana bez olovke u ruci!''- rekao je. 1997. godine otvorio je svoj prvi atelje u Beirutu, a početak pravog uspona u karijeri doživio je 2001. godine kada je po prvi puta predstavio svoju couture kolekciju na Tjednu visoke mode u Parizu. Od tada se njegova karijera kreće uzlaznom putanjom te je njegov rad privukao veliko zanimanje javnosti. Osim što ima haute couture butike u Beirutu i Parizu, njegove se kreacije vrlo često mogu vidjeti na crvenim tepisima nekih od najvećih evenata godine kao što su dodjela Oscara, Golden Globes, Cannes Film Festival i drugi te gotovo da i nema poznatije ženske osobe u koja nije nosila neku njegovu kreaciju barem jednom prilikom. Ono što je možda manje poznato je da pored redovnih ready-to-wear, couture i bridal kolekcija Zuhair ima i liniju modnih dodataka u kojoj se mogu naći cipele, torbe i raznovrsni zanimljivi komadi nakita.

Njegove kreacije odišu ženstvenošću i elegancijom, pravi su estetski užitak, a nerijetko se na njima nađe i puno sitnih, ručno šivanih detalja koji daju jednu totalno posebnu ''težinu'' cijeloj kreaciji. Teško je (čitaj: nemoguće je) odabrati svega nekoliko najljepših Zuhairovih kreacija kada je svaka posebna na svoj način. Mene zaista uvijek iznova oduševi, svakom novom kolekcijom sve više i više. U svakom segmentu su totalno moj stil. Definitivno nije jedan od mojih najdražih (ako ne i najdraži) dizajner ikada bez razloga. Za kraj, ostavljam vas da pasete oči uz slike Zuhairovih predivnih radova. Uživajte!
