Zuhair Murad’s RTW collection is inspired by the work of Victor Vasarely, an artist widely acknowledged as the founder of the ‘Op Art Movement’ - a form of art that makes use of optical illusions. 

Murad incorporated Vasarely’s technique into his collection by applying abstract patterns and mosaic printing - our eyes gaze over the unique shapes that are moulded onto each sculptured frame. Murad joins two forms of artistic expression together - modernist art and high fashion. This collection allows us to immerse ourselves into Murad’s spectacular vision.

His collection shows a plethora of carefully constructed pieces in his breathtaking RTW line. Murad adheres to his trademark style by merging together sharp features such as sexy cut-outs to expose flesh, lace embedded fabric, heavy embellished work, detailed bodices and bold colour variations. 

Each artistic piece the designer has crafted demands attention with its raw sex appeal. Murad is a true fashion icon who has delved into other artistic interpretations to declare his fervent expression for fashion.
