Musée Yves Saint Laurent Marrakech

If you are in Marrakech and have couple of hours to spare, then you can visit Jardin Majorelle and the Yves Saint Laurent Museum. 
A museum entirely devoted to the work of the legendary fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent in Marrakech, Morocco. In association with Pierre Bergé, whom he had met in 1958, Yves Saint Laurent decided to create his own couture house. His first collection was presented on 29th January 1962 at 30 bis Rue Spontini in Paris. The Yves Saint Laurent fashion house remained there for 12 years, during which Yves Saint Laurent invented the modern woman’s wardrobe: the pea-jacket and trench coat in 1962, ‘le smoking’ in 1966, the safari jacket and the first pantsuit in 1967, the first garments using transparent fabrics and the first jumpsuit in 1968. By appropriating male dress codes, he offered women self-assurance, audacity and power while preserving their femininity. Wishing to dress all women, not only rich haute couture clients, Yves Saint Laurent opened his Saint Laurent rive gauche boutique in 1966 in Paris, the first ready-to-wear boutique to bear a couturier’s name, thus paving the way to what has today become the fashion world. 
The museum dedicated to great French couturier is small but beautifully designed and the collection of gowns on display changes from time to time. The architecture, gardens, exhibits are beautifully installed. The museum is definitely worth visiting by those who would like to learn and better understand the achievements of the legendary designer. If you love fashion it’s a must-stop and you will find inspiration…
