Not long after graduating, he scouted for modelling agencies and soon became a stylist. In 2005, he decided to move to Paris where he sketched his very first unisex collection, and, in 2007, launched his eponymous brand at the age of 25. Soon after, he launched his ready-to-wear brand Rad by Rad Hourani in New York. In January 2013, Rad Hourani was invited by the Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture in Paris to present the first unisex haute couture collection in fashion history.
