So many fashion designers are looking for inspiration in various traditional clothing, different cultures and architecture. So this time I would like to share my travel inspiration with you. There are many fashion collections inspired by Morocco and its colourful mosaic patterns and I can see why -there is something fascinating about kaleidoscopic prints.
I was attracted to mosaics even before I visited Morocco. So when I came across this mosaic print fabric I instantly fell in love with the pattern of blue hues and I knew I must have it. Then of course I asked my wonderful mum to create a dress for me. She did a fantastic job (like always!) – this dress was one of my favourites for a long time.
When I started planning my trip to Marrakesh this dress is going with me. Could it be a better place to wear it than La Mamunia a legendary luxurious hotel in Marrakesh which is an epitome of Moroccan glamour?! This is the hotel were Carrie Bradshaw and her girlfriends stay in during Sex & the City 2 when they holidayed in Abu Dhabi (the move was actually filmed in Marrakesh.). It felt that I stepped into 1001 Arabian Nights and my outfit – a modern twist on Moroccan fashion – was perfect for this location.
