Currently in love with everything Zuhair Murad. His style and attention to detail is just exquisite and I can not get enough of it. Murad’s unique designs, together with the carefully selected material used, are beyond b-e-a-utiful!

For me, its the delicateness that he brings to each design as well as the “2 piece” look (often a floor length, sensual figure hugging dress, accompanied by an optional/ removable Cinderella-like skirt, train or cape; phsyically adding visual depth to each garment and in turn; creating absolute perfection). Where a gown can look sexy and sophisticated; I’m all for it and Zuhair Murad has a way of doing this like no one else! His collections have a consistent trend and continuity; with a majority of his peices having a sheer finish, very femine structures, hemlines and necklines, hand embroidered overlays in sequin, floral, brocade..etc, as well as a core sense of glitz and glam meets elegant.

His designs are unique enough for the catwalk (season after season), jaw-dropping and beautiful enough for walking down the aisle and certainly glamorous enough for the red carpet. From Bridal collections and Ready-to-wear, to Resort and Couture; Murad is faultless. Absolutley aaa-mazing!

Watch this space, there is definetly more Zuhair Murad to come!

Whether it be as oh so fabulous Carrie Bradshaw on Sex and the city or simply herself, SJP is often the “Belle of the Ball”. Quite literally this time too, as she takes the red carpet at the New York Ballet Fall Gala. Wearing a glamorous glittery Zuhair Murad gown, Parker was most definetly Cinderella-esque last night.

The smokey grey ballgown took on a sweet-heart neckline, 3-quarter length sleeves, a dramatic train (to which flared from her waist) and an elegant front slit. Overlaid with sheer and plenty of sparkly embellishments; SJP looked stunning and certainly dazzled the crowds in her Zuhair Murad original!

So over the Christmas/ New years holiday, I went to the “Ball Gowns, British Glamour since 1950s” Exhibition at the V&A, but have not had time to upload anything until now due to the exams that took over my life.

“From debutantes and royalty to charity balls and red carpets, this exhibition highlighted the styles, silhouettes and colours that have been perennial favourites for many years…
