Marrakech, nerve center of international fashion, theater of the history of Yves Saint Laurent and his fascination for Berber outfits, Moroccan fabrics and leathers; As evidenced by the museum with its name which has just opened its doors. Saint-Laurent, who, in his wake, has attracted a new generation of artists. All fascinated by culture and crafts in full swing in Marrakech, while breaking the fashion codes and revisiting the traditions of the medina.


Contemporary heir to this fascination, we can cite for example the extravagant Amine Bendriouich, winner of the OpenMymed Prize of the recognized Maison Mode Méditerranée for his pop work which diverts the big names of consumerism to put them forward in "sauce" Moroccan.



Artsi Ifrach dit Art/C is also known for its bewitching collections which revisit traditional Moroccan outfits and provide reflection on the notions of virility and the place of color in Moroccan society.
