The Zuhair Murad Fall 2017 bridal collection embraces volume-filled skirts with cascades of gemstones and crystals enhancing each one of the silhouettes.

Although almost all of the proposals feature exquisitely beaded fabrics, rich floral embroideries and oversized ruffles aplenty, each of the staples couldn’t be described as too extravagant or flamboyant, as Murad’s simplicity lies within the figures, regardless of the adornments used.

Packed with an incredible amount of sheer fabrics and appliqués, the Zuhair Murad fall 2017 bridal collection’s references are, in fact, both close to the boho-chic style, as well as to the classic “Hollywood diva” one, with glamorous mermaid figures alternating the fairytale-like silhouettes.

The aesthetic is dramatic, with structured ruffles and sculpted bodices that inevitably make everything extremely close to haute couture. Overskirts, sparkling capes, free-flowing trains and high-neck collars got filtered through Murad’s artisanal lens, which always manages to combine effortlessly chic figures with more contemporary patterns.

The convertible gowns surely are the best option for all those brides who could not wait to take off their voluminous layers and find themselves wearing something lighter.
