Canadian born, New York based designer Rad Hourani is my latest fashion passion. The young designer only has five collections under his belt and he’s already launched a second (more affordable) line, RADby Rad Hourani. Hourani’s aesthetic has been compared to Demeulemeester, Helmut Lang and Rick Owens, but the fledgling designer strives to be unique. Like the aforementioned masters, Hourani uses black to a fault and plays with linear layered styling. But, it's his unisex approach to clothes that sets him apart from the rest. Rad tends to attract an avant-garde and fearless clientele. It also helps to be a skinny minny, but I won't let that stop me!

I thought this would be an appropriate song to accompany this post!
I like long walks on the beach, Mediterranean food and foreign films. But seriously, I've been a designer for 18 years and I started this blog to discuss art, fashion and pop culture. When I'm not writing or designing, you can find me in downward dog (on a yoga mat :-) or running in Central Park listening to some super fast, pop punk tunes from the late 70's/early 80's.
