Paris Hometown Girl, Bouchra Jarrar and her Haute Couture Spring 2011 Collection

I could not put my finger why Bouchra Jarrar reminded me of Chanel. Not that she looks like Chanel and nothing compares to Chanel, but Jarrar has got something to offer and it sure is not braids and tweeds like Chanel. I realized it is because Jarrar's collection was simple, elegant, beautiful, minimal and most importantly, wearable.

After studying fashion in Paris, Bouchra Jarrar designed jewellery for Jean Paul Gaultier, followed by working at Balenciaga as the studio director and as the right hand man of Nicolas Ghesquiere for 10 years. Her marvelous voice of fashion is expressed through her designs. She has shown only three Couture collections and has created a buzz that is ongoing today in the fashion world.

Bouchra Jarrar's Spring Haute Couture 2011 collection was based on her love for asymmetry. The precision cut and tailoring produced high quality clothes that made a statement. The piping along the edges of some garments and around the slashes were absolutely sublime.The piping seems to be a signature of Jarrar's. Any piece in this collection is highly worth while to have in a wardrobe because of its haute minimalism and its timeless design and style.
Bouchra Jarrar strongly demonstrated that Haute Couture is not only about extravagant designing and fantasy, but that it is also about creating high quality wearable garments that are timeless and that emphasizes high fashion at its best. Not bad for a hometown girl from Paris.
