Review | Collection


The focus was on structure and volume this season at the house of Zuhair Murad. A powdery color palette includes snow white, pale red, dusty purple, baby blue, grey and sky blue. The silhouettes are all eveningwear – and structured – strapless evening gowns, tulip skirts, cocktail dresses, mini-dresses and peplum tops with pants. As one would expect from Zuhair Murad, floral embroidery and appliqué take up much of the surfaces. The shapes give femininity – long trains, sweetheart necklines, layered skirts, cinched waists, high slits, floaty robes.



The fabrics are as rich as the colors subtle – silk, lace and tulle are in abundance, sometimes with brocade, organza, silk gazar, crêpe de soie, guipure, silk chiffon.


Voluminous skirts are inspired by birdcages – architectural and rounded. The peplums are similar.

The models wear hair accessories that remind you of the previous few fashion shows from the house. This time it’s silvery leaves.


Other than the blue high-slit gown above, my favorite outfit from the show has to be the bridal gown:
