After Yves Saint Laurent: The New Creatives Putting Marrakech On The Map

Some 50 years after Yves Saint Laurent fell in love with Marrakech, it's once more a magnet for artists and designers who are helping to keep the Ochre City's creative spirit alive. Vogue meets eight talents at the heart of its resurgent cultural scene.

Marrakech has been tantalising stylish individuals from around the world ever since Yves Saint Laurent paid his first visit in 1966 and decided to make it his second home. Later in life, he famously said: “In Morocco, I realised that the range of colours I use was that of the zelliges, zouacs, djellabas and caftans. The boldness seen since then in my work, I owe to this country, to its forceful harmonies, to its audacious combinations, to the fervour of its creativity.”
