Maxi shirt & "Sahara" necklace

Pin It Now!

 From the upcycled man's shirts collection ,this one comes in a Jbala (north)  Moroccan-inspired pattern, ( half reused shirt half handmade), slightly oversized with a longer length. I've spent a lot of time tweaking the proportions so it's easy, and great for layering without ever looking sloppy.
How to wear it now? keep it simple and Style it with colourful accessories  .I've chosen here a handmade accessory  "sahara",a bead necklace inspired from tribal necklaces of south morocco ,with a touch of colored pompom and striped fabric combined with a beaded loop of collected old & new "akkad" and a crochted clasp .

boucharouite

Pin It Now!

Boucharouite is a moroccan rug ,made by most families from nomadic background. This craft is relying on instinct and experience rather than set design rules. Wonderfully extravagant in colour and timeless in design the Boucherouite carpet is delightfully irresistible.
It can be made from almost anything… second-hand clothing, towels, bed linen, even plastic!
 I love these beautiful  colorful and happy rugs ! and decided to make some boucharouite "concept " garments.

the sociology of fashion

Pin It Now!

 As a consumer, there is a lot of choices when it comes to shopping.  One of those choices is whether to shop at a locally-owned store or a nationally-owned chain.

 With this post i just want to share with you my lifestyle, attittude and my style statement, not as a designer but as a consumer ,
all along  this 2 years i've been taking many photos  of my daily look, illustrating  moroccan community of  small business and poor jobs ,because i just prefer to spend my money at  those inspiring places support my community and communicate with those people rather than going to big stores and help rich people getting richer.

 with a belief that fashion it's not just about garments  is More than a clothing we wear it is a life experience ,a behavior.
