During my long stay in Morocco in Dec/Jan (yes, 7 months ago), Royal Mansour Marrakech was my last destination before to go back to Rome.
I was so inspired by this Palace owned by his-Majesty the King, that I called my good friend Amine Mrani, Haute Couture designer, and we set-up a shooting with 8 of its most beautiful Kaftans in 8 iconic places of this wonderful hotel.
Caftans (or Kaftans) are the traditional Moroccan garments that ladies (and the royal family) wear for special occasions. Each one takes 3 to 6 months to be made depending of the details and complexity. Also, they can cost from €1,000 to €10,000 each!
During these 20 days in Morocco (from 24 December to 14th January) I had the opportunity to wear many of them, so this trip was a little different (and more special) than the one back in September: I have been shooting with Caftans rather with my casual western outfits.
Indeed, it’s not every day that I have the opportunity to wear such beauties!
The Royal Mansour has also a different concept: there is no rooms or suites here but several Riads – Traditional Moroccan Apartments or houses with terrace and pool on the top, and an interior garden or courtyard.
If you have been following me on Facebook or Instagram, you probably saw my live vide inside my Riad and my bedroom.
Which of these 8 Kaftan is your favourite? Have you ever been in the Royal Mansour? How was your experience?
Let me know!
