Inside The Dramatic Yves Saint Laurent Museum In Marrakech

Yves Saint Laurent, as much as anyone, brought art and fashion together. His partner observed of this connection “Fashion is not an art, but you need an artist to make fashion”.  All this is now celebrated in two new museums. One, in his Paris atelier, is a kind of permanent retrospective. The other is in Marrakech. Why Marrakech? As the great man once declared “Marrakech taught me color”.
