Mouzannar's 2017 collection was created by the house's sixth generation designers Dori and Alia Mouzannar and launched at Liza Beirut on Saturday December 10, 2017. This follows on the heels of a high-profile collaboration with designer Eddie Borgo on this year's VS Fantasy Bra, which made headlines around the world and is now available for sale and on display at the lingerie brand's flagship store in New Yorc City, before it goes on tour around the world.
The studded, jewel-encrusted bra was designed by Eddie Borgo and handcrafted over 700 hours with gems from jeweller AW Mouzannar. Twenty-five-year-old Jasmine Tookes, who was selected to wear the showstopper at this year's VS fashion show, said the bra was constructed on a mould of her upper body, literally made to measure. The model joked she probably wouldn't want to go for a jog in it, given its weight. "It's very heavy; it weighs more than 450 karats. It weighs down on my shoulders a little bit, but it's so worth it," she said, cheekily adding: "I might jog out of this show with it though."
AW Mouzannar's latest offerings include Dori’s nature inspired Meteor, Matrix, and Spine collections, involving multiple shades, complex shapes, and various sizes of stones and Alia’s music and art inspired Facet, Sketches and Twiggy collections.
