High fashion in Morocco – Caftan 2012 Maroc collection

Last weekend (Saturday 12 May) was the annual Caftan fashion show at the Palais des Congress in Marrakesh. The twelve designers included Cain Allah El Batoul, Dar Oum Al Ghait and Siham El Habti. The theme for 2012 was the Treasures of Ibn Battuta, the Moroccan explorer who in the 14th Century travelled throughout the Islamic world for thirty years. In addition, young designers have been given the opportunity to showcase up to eight caftans they have designed for the fashion show.

Take some time off and read the official Caftan blog with clips and images from earlier years and enjoy this video of the 2012 collections.
