Moroccan on trend


One of the most evolving trend there is, is Moroccan. I have not had the opportunity to visit Morocco, but I do have friends have been there and they have expressed the inspiration they have found while traveling to Morocco. I always think of Morocco a very exotic but most hidden gem. So many things have come from the Moroccan culture…food, art, fashion, interiors. One of my very dear friends Costa has Moroccan chandeliers throughout his apartment in San Francisco. Which has inspired me to write this blog along with doing more research.

Runway fashion is the best way to express your creativity. My favorite quote of all time ” Everyday is a fashion show, and the world is your runway!” I believe this is true. If you can rock it then wear it, who cares what others think. That is the beauty of fashion design, you can express yourself.

Bold prints and pattern make up the Moroccan feel. Lanvin and Mara Hoffman did a great job of representing Moroccan fashion with a new age twist.

What cannot be reinvented are Moroccan lighting. This can make the room feel more Moroccan even if you do not have that style of home. This style of lighting always inspires me. This type of lighting inspired me to write this blog entry. (all images from google image)

You can place these tiles only half way up the wall and then you can add paint to finish it off. I always say I only use Benjamin Moore paint.  ( all images are from Benjamin Moore online)

2016-402000-30As I mention in my last couple entries. I always referrer to my paint by Benjamin Moore.  I have chosen this paint colors that I think represent the Moroccan style: 2055-40 Bahama Sea blue, 2020-40 Yellow rain coat, 2016-40 Marmalade, 2000-30 red tulip. You can find these at your local paint store that carries Benjamin Moore.

When I was a little girl of course girls had all the cute outfits and so many choices. Boys on the other hand had pants, shirts and tennis shoes..unless you were a preppy child, then khakis were it. Now a days kids, children boys and girls have so many more stylish clothing… see photos above (Pinterest) under the category boys girls fashion, and this what pops up. It almost no wait it is like grown up fashion. Kids want to dress like adults and adults want to dress like children. Girls- babydoll dresses oh yes they are back. For guys…preppy, punk it is also in children’s wear!  Fashion 2015 runway has just shown baby doll dresses! (All images from Google)
