She “brought new spirit of femininity and modernity” and “contributed to raising the profile of the house on the international fashion stage,” the company said, noting Maurer worked on the spring 2013 and fall collections.
A Rabanne spokeswoman said a successor for Maurer would be named in the next few months.
