Madame Wang wishes to thank Bouchra Jarrar, who since her arrival brought her talent to serve the company. Bouchra Jarrar thanks Madame Wang for her trust. She wishes most particularly to acknowledge the work of the teams with whom she collaborated to express creativity and French know-how. Bouchra Jarrar will now concentrate on new projects.”
While holding the place at Lanvin, designer Bouchra Jarrar had her own eponymous couture and ready to wear lines on hold. It is expected she is to go back to her namesake label.

Parisian brands such as Kenzo have already presented the Spring Summer 2018 women’s, followed by Proenza Schouler and few more showing in the past days.

I know what I want, and what I don’t. I’m fortunate enough to be able to create beautiful things because I’ve always been surrounded by good souls. Positive things are all that interest me. My moto is living and being free.”
