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!

For ten months the V&A Museum are showcasing a fascinating Wedding Dresses exhibition. With dresses dating back to 1775  up until 2014;  the visual progression really is quite spectacular. From your traditional white bride to your bright bride and a statement gown, the exhibit shows wedding dresses in varied lights.

Going back to the beginning (well close enough), wedding dresses were not designed nor made to be worn for just the one day. Made from cotton, polyester, linen and muslin; what a bride wore on the entrance of her marriage, was often what she fashioned throughout her marriage. As years went on, silk, satin and lace were eventually the norm.

From huge hips, extravagant veils and what looked like nothing more than Sunday’s best, to the infamous incredibly tight corset, teeny tiny shoes and layers of lace; came the one of a kind Dior gowns, exquisite Philip Treacy hats and unique Vivienne Westwood dresses; that we love and adore today!

Now the wedding industry is a multi-million dollar industry, (with most of the budget spent on the dress) and there are so many bridal wear designers that brides are spoilt for choice; making it more impossible to find the perfect dress. Eeeek !

To all the soon to be brides out there, good luck!
