Cannes Film Festival: Designer Ali Idrissi Designs “Haut et fort” Team’s Red Carpet Looks

Written by FDM

For the famous climb of the steps, Nabil Ayouch chose designer Ali Drissi to dress his cast. A style challenge brilliantly succeeded by the designer who revealed on this occasion his new trademark: upcycling.

Ali Drissi drew inspiration from the world of hip hop. With a sprinkle of glamor, the designs made for a remarkable red carpet moment for the team of the film “Haut et Fort” (Casablanca Beats) by Nabil Ayouch.

For the occasion, Ali Drissi highlighted pieces from the streetwear wardrobe such as the bombers, the oversized jacket, or the cargo pants to mix with “tailored” pieces, dear to the designer’s stylistic universe. The outfits of the12 artists required a hundred meters of fabric (taffeta, different denim, silk georgette, silk singing, waxed canvas, lambskin), more than 500 hours of work.

Ali Idrissi’s talent was thus revealed through Tanya, a technique developed by the designer for 2 years already and which allows creating woven surfaces from worn clothes, fabric scraps, and obsolete fabric stock. This solidarity and eco-responsible action highlights the talent of Moroccan weavers in the most remote regions of the kingdom.
