Brides of Beirut

Over the past ten years i've spent a lot of time in Beirut, Lebanon... but i hadn't been for a long time, until recently. As i walked around the city i found that as always, there's a lot going on, and the city regarded as the "Paris of the Middle East" continues to be restored in all it's glory, just as slain Prime Minister Rafic Hariri wanted.

In the bridal industry Beirut is best known for it's famous designers Elie Saab and Zuhair Murad, so today i thought i'd let you enter the wonderful world of Beirut, a place where everything is big... the bouffants, the bling and the big, big weddings.

Another Lebanese designer who is big in Hollywood and the international bridal industry is Zuhair Murad. Though not as familiar as Elie Saab (yet), Murad's designs are cutting-edge, stylish, and dare i say it... a little bit sexy! Zuhair Murad is a big Beirut favourite... and here is why...

Zuhair Murad is popular with celebrities like Carrie Underwood, Miley Cyrus & Kylie Minogue.
