Zuhair Murad is a Lebanese fashion designer based in Beirut. He is considered one of the most talented designers of the 21st century, also known as the secret weapon of the hottest red carpet starlets. Murad quickly became known as one of the top designers in Italy. This was the beginning of a new era for him. In 2005, the first Zuhair Murad "Ready-to-Wear" collection debuted, a simpler – but still aesthetically glamorous – contemporary line designed to meet the growing needs of its customers. Two years later he inaugurated his Parisian "Maison de Couture" in the heart of the Golden Triangle on "François 1er" street.
