RAD HOURANI IS THE FIRST CANADIAN DESIGNER TO BECOME AN “INVITED MEMBER” BY THE FRENCH FEDERATION OF HAUTE COUTURE AND THE FIRST UNSIEX HAUTE COUTURE DESIGNER IN COSTUME HISTORY.

HE IS NOT JUST A DESIGNER, A PHOTOGRAPHER, A FILMMAKER, OR AN ARTIST. HE IS ALL OF THESE AT ONCE. HIS WORK IS AN ATTENTIVE STUDY OF THE HUMAN BODY THAT CELEBRATES NEUTRALITY AS A DEFINING HUMAN TRAIT.

FOR THIS COLLECTION, RAD HOURANI CREATED COUTURE GARMENTS AS SCULPTURES BY USING UNUSUAL MATERIALS, SUCH AS PLASTIC AND NYLON. HIS DESIRE IS TO EXPRESS COUTURE AS A FORM OF ART BY COLLABORATING WITH L’ARSENAL CONTEMPORARY ART CENTER WHERE HE PHOTOGRAPHED AND FILMED HIS 14 UNISEX LOOKS AROUND ARTISTS ART WORK SUCH AS David Altmejd, Anselm Kiefer, Nick Cave, Ugo Rodinone, Theaster Gates, Adad Hannah, Giuseppe Penone AND OTHERS.
 
THE UNIFORMITY OF HIS COLLECTION HAS SUCH A DISTINCTIVE LANGUAGE THAT IT DEFIES CONVENTION. USING PRINCIPLES OF ARCHITECTURE TO CREATE HIS PIECES, RAD HOURANI CONSTANTLY WORKS WITH AN EYE TO HOW A GARMENT WILL PERFORM IN MOVEMENT. LIKE ORIGAMI, HIS PATTERNS APPEAR TO HAVE THEIR OWN MAGIC FOLDS THAT ENABLE HIS PHILOSOPHY TO EMERGE SO THAT THOSE WHO WEAR HIS GARMENTS FEEL COMFORTABLE, POWERFUL AND BEYOND TIME. IT IS FITTING THAT RAD HOURANI SIMPLY NUMBERS HIS COLLECTIONS, FREEING THEM FROM TRENDS AND SEASONS TO ENSURE THAT THEY ARE TIMELESS.

THE RAD HOURANI UNISEX VISION ADVOCATES NON-CONFORMITY AS THE ESSENCE OF INDIVIDUALISM. HE SEES MODERNITY AS AN ODYSSEY FREE OF RULES, GENDER, AGE, SEASONS, BOUNDARIES AND CONDITIONING.

IN HIS OWN VISION, HE IS SKETCHING A NEW, FREER WAY TO LIVE.
