Close up: Zuhair Murad SS18 embroidery art

Zuhair Murad revisits the season’s fairyland motif in a fully sequined, royal blue gown with silver beading. It’s a showstopper all right. But all-out seduction can be a lot of work. The softer, flower-strewn pink dresses look younger, more grounded, and more of-the-moment. It will be interesting to follow where else the designer decides to go with this new mood.
