Written by FDM

A first for Morocco! Noureddine Amir has been selected by the Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture in France to participate as a guest member in the next fashion week in Paris, from Monday January 22 till Thursday January 25.

This is a real consecration for the Moroccan designer who becomes, thus, the first Moroccan to participate in the event. “As a Moroccan who has been working in the field for many years, this is a great moment that will mark my career forever!”  Amir relayed to the Huffpost Morocco, “it is also an honor and a privilege, but above all a real challenge to take up,” he said.

An esthete and visionary, Noureddine Amir has just added his name to the prestigious list of 17 guest members, including Zuhair Murad, Georges Hobeika and Ralph & Russo.

Born in Marrakech in 1967, Noureddine Amir has always been passionate about art in every respect.  He has become known with his sculptural dresses, which are fairly described as works of art, made up of both raw fibers (raffia, jute) and subtler materials such as pressed chiffon…

Spotted by Pierre Bergé in 2014, during the exhibition on contemporary Morocco at the Arab World Institute, the latter devotes a retrospective exhibition to his works at his foundation in Paris, in March 2016. Ever since, things seem to have accelerated for the designer and his career takes a new turn today.
