It is a very special thing to be invited by the highly reputable Le Chambre Syndical de La Haute Couture to present a collection during couture week in Paris. It must feel even more special to be the first designer to do so with a complete unisex collection. The talented man who received this honor was Jordan born fashion designer Rad Hourani. After relocating from Montreal to Paris in 2006, he established his namesake haute couture collection and a ready to wear line named RAD by Rad Hourani. Both lines focus on a luxurious but stark look, cut in razor-sharp precision.
They are asexual, aseasonal, they come from no place, no time, no tradition, yet they could be at home anywhere, anytime. They exude a sense of discreet chic, the essence of timeless style, drawn on a monochromatic and graphical canvas.
On the occasion of the brand’s 5th anniversary, Montreal based art center phi. invited Rad Hourani to curate an interdisciplinary show presenting the designers work in the context of his inspirations.
