The key to any art is who you are when you see it.

Designer Rad Hourani has a unique spy glass focused on the world of fashion that has given him a novel point of view. He was born in Jordan and relocated to Montreal as a teen where he then began working as a stylist and then in his twenties began developing his own line of clothing. And the influence of the old and new Montreal and ancient Jordan is evident in the designs. The clothes are tough, asexual and beautiful in the way that modern art is a beautiful reinterpretation of old themes. These are designs that are destined to sell at Barney's and be displayed at MoMA.

At the Rad Hourani Fall 2008 show, his models strode down the runway to a cover of the Rolling Stones "Paint It Black." And black they were, ninja black with one red head-to-toe-outfit to supply the paprika. Bravo!
