FASHION SHOOT: Berber dreams

The colourful hubbub of the city streets can offer some of the most stunning visuals, which we found with our fashion shoot on the streets of Marrakesh 

“By far the greatest and most admirable form of wisdom is that needed to plan and beautify cities and human communities.” ― Socrates

Morocco has appealed to creatives for centuries, inspiring everyone from Yves Saint Laurent and George Orwell to The Simpsons and Absolutely Fabulous. It’s not hard to see why.

The streets flare their colours like amorous peacocks, the locals bustle their way through life with an atmospheric din that evokes the spirit of the African bazaar as the tourist eyes the daily scene that plays out here with a mixture of trepidation and awe. 

Long home to the scattered communities of the Berber people, who spread westward from the Nile Valley from around 2000BC and wound up in North African territories, the influence of an historic travelling culture is traceable in every cracked and lined building and path; the legacy of the Berber languages still present in the whispers of the rickety avenues.

Meandering through the Marrakesh byways and unknown pathways, we found vivid beauty round every corner and awe-inspiring visuals that cried out to be captured on camera.

Our colourful trip off the beaten urban path through Marrakesh unearthed that very inspiration that Orwell and YSL fell for almost instantly.
