Last summer, Canadian designer Rad Hourani became the first designer in history to present a unisex haute couture show during Paris Haute Couture Week. Now the 30-year-old Montreal native has been invited to become an official member of the Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture, making him the first ever Canadian designer to be a member.
Somehow, it doesn’t surprise us. After all, just a few years ago Rad was invited by Anna Wintour and Franca Sozzani to present Rad Hourani #6 in Milan in 2010, in honour of the CDFA Vogue Fashion Fund at Vogue Italy Talents Exhibition. It doesn’t get any more high fashion than that.
If you’re not already a huge fan of Rad Hourani’s unique style and vision, read more on the designer and his unisex creations in our exclusive interview with Rad that we conducted just before his first ever unisex haute couture show in Paris: Interview: Rad Hourani On His First Haute Couture Unisex Collection.
