Wedding dress brands
One of the brightest and most memorable designers of wedding dresses is Zuhair Murad, a Lebanese fashion designer who skillfully combined Eastern traditions and European elegance. Why do his dresses fascinate and leave an unforgettable impression of the bride, who appeared down the aisle in the dress that came out from under his hand?
A few words about the designer
For two decades now, Zuhair Murad has been surprising us with his beautiful outfits, constantly participating in the race on fashion tracks, where he is always enthusiastically greeted by both colleagues and consumers.
The designer is praised by the press and chosen by many celebrities from all over the world, as a result of which he has become a well-deserved favorite among the stars. Covers of glossy magazines are occupied by world-famous women, flaunting in magnificent outfits by the Lebanese designer.
Zuhair Murad’s list of favorites includes Christina Aguilera, Katy Perry, Jennifer Lopez, Beyonce and many other famous beauties.
The brand with twenty years of experience sells and distributes dresses in many countries where they are in great demand, despite the high price. And few people look at the cost, having once tried on a wedding dress from Zuhair Murad.
Most of the outfits are based on a classic lush silhouette. The beloved princess and mermaid silhouettes are flaunted by the fashion designer every season, while decorating and embellishing outfits with bright Lebanese details so that no outfit is like another.
The main distinguishing features by which you can recognize the hand of this master are:
- elements of complex embroidery on outfits;
- extraordinary applications;
- feather trim.
The designer often decorates rather frank models with them, transforming the translucent fabric and the dresses themselves according to the standards of Lebanese, but by no means European fashion.
The master prefers light chiffon, fine satin, luxurious silk and sophisticated guipure, because we are used to seeing these fabrics in wedding dresses. It is they who are able to instantly make the bride refined and fragile, like a porcelain doll.
To fulfill his ideas, the fashion designer does not spare money, so the dresses are sewn from the most expensive and high-quality fabrics, finished with the best passages and accessories, while they are characterized by a certain simplicity and at the same time elegance.
The author tends to think that a woman is the best adornment of a man, which is why she needs to look rich, luxurious and elegant. Bold design solutions, lightness of the dresses, graceful lines framing the silhouette of the bride turn the dresses of this brand into the perfect wedding dress for any woman.
Author’s collections are complemented by unsurpassed transforming dresses.
Zuhair Murad 2013
The A‑line silhouettes presented in the collection amaze with luxurious finishes, making the image more seductive and sophisticated. Dresses also fascinate with the play with shades of white and texture.
Looking at the collection, you understand that your favorite girls deserve chic wedding dresses.
Zuhair Murad 2014
Collections of spring-summer and autumn-winter 2014 consist of 90% classic dresses that girls traditionally imagine in childhood: open shoulders, corset, voluminous tulle skirt, white color…
These outfits are perfectly combined with a wide variety of types of veils: long, tiered, traditional. Such a tandem gives the image perfection and luxury, mystery and tenderness, and also guarantees the admiring glances of guests.
It is worth giving publicity and drawing your attention to the designer’s extraordinary decisions for outfits from the 2014 collections, which perfectly combine seemingly completely incompatible things.
The outfit of a quite modest cut, with a closed openwork neckline and shoulders, is made of translucent fabric. See-through linen and underwire in some models hides a luxurious train.
The conspicuous corset is the move provided by the author, on which the whole style of the bride rests.
Seductiveness along with femininity and elegance are not the only key characteristics of Zuhair Murad outfits. In the next collection, he added a touch of audacity and playfulness.
An example of audacity and individuality will be Ashley — a wedding dress with an asymmetrical hem, shortened in front and a cascading long train falling to the floor at the back. This image is one of the bold moves that the designer used in this dress, because the skirt trim deserves special publicity.
Floor-length dresses made of translucent lace deserve special attention. All of them are closed and with sleeves, which allows the brides to look modest.
This collection is simply amazing with the abundance of lace. Partially and fully lace outfits are made in a classic style. An unusual cut and layered a‑line skirts made of airy chiffon look very harmonious with a translucent top. All this makes the image of the bride light, delicate and refined.
Such a move as translucent models is taken by many well-known designers, but in the collections of this fashion house it appears extremely advantageous.
An example of this was the wedding dresses of Molly and Daisy, in which translucent skirts are made of light, airy fabric, combined with a tight, delicate, elegant top and three-quarter sleeves or elongated to the wrist. Such an outfit looks moderately restrained, gentle and charming, while seductive, mysterious and sexy.
The latest collections of the designer become a worthy continuation of the line of fashionable wedding clothes, but not only a continuation, but also a role model. In the 2016 season, the emphasis is on romance, which the designer creates with the help of pearls, rhinestones and lace.
Dresses with bare shoulders, flowing trains are decorated with drapery and handmade embroidery.
Dresses are combined with translucent capes, thus giving the image of the bride mystery, grace and sexuality.
While watching the presentation of the new collection, it seems that elegance and solemnity, luxury and charm are in the air. All wedding dresses sparkle with an abundance of elegant, delightful embroidery, plunging us into the ocean of tenderness and femininity.
Dresses shine with expensive, royal, magnificent and high-quality fabrics. And in combination with the weightless finest openwork, these materials turn the bride into a fairy from the most fairy tale.
Unusually skillfully, the designer combines openness, accessibility and chastity in his wedding dresses, which gives his dresses even more charm and elegance. Such a bride should appear before the guests and future husband on the day of the wedding.
The basis of all models, the author put the classic “princess” silhouette, which easily turns into an elegant “fish” or a strict dress with a tight cut. The model presented below is complemented by a train and a bolero.
Summing up, let’s say that dresses from Zuhair Murad have a sophisticated style, sophistication, luxury and royal nobility, which attracts many connoisseurs of beauty to the salons. Oriental luxury and European elegance give the brides a truly imperial look, grace, grandeur and tenderness.
