Kenza began her career at Jimmy Choo in London where she began work designing shoes and leather goods for the prestigious brand. In 2009, Jimmy Choo sent her to the famous leather workshops of Florence to deepen her technical knowledge of shoemaking alongside master craftsmen.
It was in Italy where she realized that luxury, before all, is a craft enhanced by design. That idea magnified when she thought of the leather crafts created in her own country. Eventually, Kenza returned to London to continue working in sales, customer relations and team training in artistic culture at Louis Vuitton. However, her New Tangier project began to emerge and take shape.
New Tangier draws its inspiration from the past and future of its namesake city – a precious jewel nestled between the East and West.
