Zuhair Murad: Haute Couture show Spring/Summer 2018 (with interview)

Designer: Zuhair MuradInspiration: Native Americans, their beauty, but also their symbols revisited by the Lebanese designer. Collection: precious and delicate, with a play on lengths, short becomes long with a system of superpositions and triangular cuts. Fringing is found on several models, whilst pictorial motifs and traditional prints are recreated in exceptional embroidery. A juxtaposition of lace and macramé for again an uncovered sensuality. A touch of red plus earthy tones and ochre, with gold and a very chic black to finish. To note: The wedding dress, with its immense train the result of 6000 hours of work.Interview with Zuhair Murad: It was a big challenge to translate the Native American theme to an haute couture collection and to my women and my style so it was risky, but I said I want to go with this challenge. The women now need to feel comfortable, light, soft with some effect. My woman, she’s not a boring woman she’s a very strong, sexy, self-confident. This collection actually, there’s a lot of details in the embroidery with the geometric design, to use their symbols because the symbols of the Native Americans are very important in their lives and these symbols mean something so I used them in the embroidery and in the fabric and I use a lot of fringes and feathers because it was very important and their customs and traditions also. They want also to not always wear long dresses, there are a lot of occasions for shorter dresses and it’s young, fresh, cool. The bride always ends the shows, so it’s nice to finish your show with something very spectacular to keep in mind a beautiful picture. It’s 6000 hours of embroidery, so it’s a huge piece!
