Visit the Yves Saint Laurent Museum & Majorelle Gardens
The Majorelle garden
It was founded in 1930 of the last century by French Orientalist artist Jacques Majorelle, It took about 40 years to create it. After his death, the garden fell into desolation, and in 1980 it was bought out and revived by the famous couturier Yves Saint Laurent, who fell under the charm of Marrakesh, and he was one of the first Western celebrities who decided to settle in the Red City. Here he got the inspiration for his collections.
The garden is famous for its rich collection of tropical plants and cacti, picturesque ponds, and pavilions of bright blue color, which is called “blue major. After the death of Yves Saint Laurent, his ashes were scattered in this garden.
On the territory of the garden, there is the Berber Museum, which is very small and contains a personal collection of Berber accessories and jewelry of Yves Saint Laurent.
Yves Saint Laurent Museum
The name of this great fashion designer is inextricably linked with Marrakech. Saint Laurent first visited the Red City in 1966, and since then the color of its noisy streets and bazaars has become one of the main sources of inspiration in his work.
Saint Laurent owned the Majorelle Garden and a villa in Marrakech, where he came annually to work on his collections. His connection with Marrakech was so strong that even the ashes of the couturier were decided to be left in Morocco after his death.
In October 2017, a museum in his honor was opened in Marrakech, together with the museum of the same name in Paris. It presents to the public about 5,000 items of clothing and 15,000 high fashion accessories at ever-changing exhibitions.
In the branch of the museum in Marrakech, you can see around 50 pieces of clothing created by the designer, his sketches, and photos. Temporary exhibitions on fashion, contemporary art, design, and anthropology are also held here. Special attention should be paid to the architecture of the museum as if recreating the texture of the fabric.
