Written by FDM

After an inaugural exhibition dedicated to the works of Jacques Majorelle, the Yves Saint Laurent museum of Marrakech highlights, from February 23 until April 22, the work of the Moroccan couturier Noureddine Amir through a masterful staging.

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…

“It seemed obvious to us to support a Moroccan artist whose work we love.Pierre Bergé had a real crush on his sculptural dresses, ” said Björn Dahlström, director of the Yves Saint Laurent Museum in Marrakech, to HuffPost Morocco .

Noureddine Amir had already exhibited his works at the Arab World Institute in 2014. Spotted by Pierre Bergé, an exhibition had been dedicated to him at the Pierre Bergé-Yves Saint Laurent Foundation in Paris in 2016.

Along came 2018 with an unprecedented recognition for Noureddine Amir. He has been selected by the Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture to participate in ParisFashion Week Haute Couture.  Thus adding his name to the prestigious list of guest members including Zuhair Murad, Georges Hobeika and Ralph & Russo. He will showcase alongside Chanel, Dior or Givenchy, at the event to be held from July 1 to 5, which represents the highest distinction for a couturier.
