Designer Zuhair Murad grew up in Baalbek, Lebanon. Since his childhood, he always dreamt of evading to a world of fantasy. He started sketching dresses at the age of ten, quoted as saying “I don’t recall a day in my life without a pen in my hand!”.
In 1997, Zuhair Murad opens his first atelier in Beirut, catering to a growing private clientele.
In 2001, Murad presents his couture collection for the first time during Haute Couture Week in Paris, gaining momentum with international media.
In 2012, the Zuhair Murad Fashion House relocates to a new, eleven-story building in Gemmayze, in the heart of Beirut. The majestic space houses not only the corporate offices, but the heart of the Zuhair Murad Design Studio, including designers, pattern makers, tailors and embroidery experts.
The supervisory board of the Chambre syndicale de la Haute couture in Paris elects him as new guest member to the Haute Couture calendar.
