Green Gardens Workshop in a nutshell.

A week in magical Marrakech, discovering, experiencing, creating and sharing with a group of nature-loving women from around the world.
The Green Gardens Workshop is an alternative way to have a unique taste of the Red city.
Besides visiting the most diverse, courtyards, gardens and parks, we cycled through the city and the palm grove, we cooked our own veggie lunch under the banana trees, after shopping the ingredients on the local market.

In the meantime we collected 'greens', seeds and flowers for our herbarium and we also had to update our instagram accounts, haha...

It's impossible to capture this week in and around Marrakech in just a few pictures.
The sights, smells, sounds, mad adventures and fun we had together...

Thanks Amanda, Ank, Christelle, Debbie, Ellen, Flip, Jane, Kerrin, Marielle, Martien, Teresa and Tif!

kaftan mood

kaftan mood

In the Sixties, fashionista Diana Vreeland 'discovered' kaftans during a trip to Morocco.

The ones who know me, know that I could wear kaftans all day every day...

A kaftan in summertime creates comfort, ease in the heat, and very much a sense of grace.

Also after summer, a kaftan is the perfect stylish loungewear after a bath or shower.
Just chuck it over your head...

I brought some kaftans from Morocco, for those who need a kaftan in their lives...

Have a look in my SHOP.

musee yves saint laurent marrakech

“When Yves Saint Laurent first discovered Marrakech in 1966, he was so moved by the city that he decided to buy a house here, and returned regularly. It feels perfectly natural, fifty years later, to build a museum dedicated to his oeuvre, which was so inspired by this country.” - Pierre Bergé

Today is the opening of Musee YVES SAINT LAURENT Marrakech.

A museum entirely devoted to the work of the legendary fashion designer, Yves Saint Laurent (1936-2008).
The new building, situated on Rue Yves Saint Laurent next to Jardin Majorelle, spans over 4,000 m² and is more than just a museum. Designed by Studio KO, it features a 400 m² permanent exhibition space where the work of Yves Saint Laurent will be presented in a scenography by Christophe Martin; a 150 m² space for temporary exhibitions, a 130-seat auditorium, a boutique and bookshop, a café-restaurant, as well as a research library comprising 5,000 volumes.

Last week I past the building by bike several times and I watched videos of key moments in the YSL history, at a mighty public screening on the Djemaa el Fna on Friday evening.

During an official ceremony on Saturday, we even were allowed to cycle past the strictly secured and closed Rue YSL, right next to the red carpet, with our Green Gardens workshop group on 12 bikes.

Never-to-be-forgotten memories!

Yesterday, just one day before the opening I left Marrakech. For an invitation to the opening today, I would have missed my flight without hesitation.

Well at least now I have another good reason to go back to Marrakech.

hello from marrakech

marrakech october 2017

Today we made a bicycle tour through la Palmaraie. It's so green and peaceful.

In the medina it is a challenge, but so much fun. Just outside the medina you can enjoy a relaxed ride.

This bike ride was a 'test drive' in preparation for the Green Gardens workshop.
