THE PROPERTY OF MADAME MOUNA AYOUB
Offered here is a further selection from Madame Mouna Ayoub's extensive collection. Madame Ayoub began a love affair with clothes at the age of four at her mother's knee and has continued it throughout her life and marriage to a Saudi Arabian millionaire to the present day. She has published her autobiography 'La Verité' and is a patron of the arts.
Mouna Ayoub is an enthusiastic collector of couture. Her extensive wardrobe scales the heights of serious Haute Couture, passes through glamorous designer Pret-à-Porter and reaches as far as the purest of fashion froth on occasion. Madame Ayoub continues to support the fashion industry, as she says herself, while she still breathes: La mort de la Haute Couture n'arrivera jamais tant que je serais vivant.
