The World of MuradZuhair Murad
Designer Zuhair Murad grew up in Baalbek, Lebanon. Since his childhood, he always dreamt of evading to a world of fantasy. He started sketching dresses at the age of ten, quoted as saying “I don’t recall a day in my life without a pen in my hand!”.
In 1997, Zuhair Murad opens his first atelier in Beirut, catering to a growing private clientele.
In 2001, Murad presents his couture collection for the first time during Haute Couture Week in Paris, gaining momentum with international media.
In 2005, Murad debuts the first Zuhair Murad Ready-to-Wear Collection, a more simple – yet still aesthetically glamorous – contemporary line designed to meet the expanding needs of his clientele.
In 2007, Murad inaugurates his Parisian “Maison de Couture” in the heart of the Triangle d’Or on “François 1er” Street. The ground floor of the Parisian showroom is dedicated to ready-to-wear collections , whereas a new luxurious yet simplistic floor is inaugurated to display the couture and bridal dresses; it contains a workshop and a design studio conceived as an extension to the Lebanese Fashion House in Paris
In 2012, the Zuhair Murad Fashion House relocates to a new, eleven-story building in Gemmayze, in the heart of Beirut. The majestic space houses not only the corporate offices, but the heart of the Zuhair Murad Design Studio, including designers, pattern makers, tailors and embroidery experts. The supervisory board of the Chambre syndicale de la Haute couture in Paris elects him as new guest member to the Haute Couture calendar.
In 2014, he officially inaugurates his bridal boutique located in his eleven-story building in Beirut, where his wedding dresses are sold and displayed. The two-floor store brings the Zuhair Murad codes to life with an innovative interpretation
In 2015, Zuhair Murad opens his second Office ln Paris, located this time on Pierre Charron. Placed on the 4th floor, the new office presents Murad's universe over 400 sqm in a décor of wood, white lacquer & glass
