Highlights of the Spectacular Dior’s 2020 Cruise at Marrakesh

Published

on

The Moroccan City Marrakesh seems to be on many’s bucket list as it makes an ideal destination for its historical buildings, colorful souks, and local fashion.

The city even attracted the luxury house Christian Dior as well, who staged its Cruise 2020 show with the city’s astounding El Badi Palace as the background.

Yves Saint Laurent, the Maison’s former Creative Director, was fascinated with Morocco and thought of it as his second home. So choosing the North African country doesn’t come as a surprise; because of Dior’s long history with the continent.

El Badi Palace dates back to the 16th century, with its pool and gardens, it certainly made a fascinating backdrop for the Dior show, and as if the palace wasn’t magnificent enough, the outdoor runway was decorated with dozens candles.

On their official Instagram account, the brand explained that Maria Grazia Chiuri chose Marrakesh because “the city across centuries has drawn a stream of influential travelers, artists and creatives, from former Dior Creative Director Yves Saint Laurent to novelist and philosopher Albert Camus, photographers Cecil Beaton and Irving Penn, and more.”

The brand was eager to celebrate the merging between the Mediterranean, European and African culture; and so it worked along local artisans, Uniwax and other designers including Grace Wales Bonner and Mickalene Thomas.

The two-day event started with a dinner along a traditional music performance at the Palais Bahia.

Jessical Alba, who is a Dior ambassador was present during the event and also got to celebrate her 38th birthday during those two-day extravaganza.

“All the people and places I’ve been able to connect with and experience through my 38 years! #heartisfull! thank you @dior team @staceykubasak for inviting me to this magical place,” she wrote on her Instagram, along with pictures of her trip.
