The plaque seeks to recognize ‘dwellings rendered remarkable by their history and by those who have inhabited them’. The plaque on the Villa Oasis marks the first time that the French state has thus honored a house not on the French soil. Following Bergé’s death in 2017, Madison Cox, a longtime friend of Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Bergé, took over the responsibility of preserving the legacy of fashion’s most power couple. @jardinmajorellemarrakech  Photo | The Villa Bou Saf Saf renamed Villa Oasis by Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Bergé. #ArtsOfFashionFoundation  #ArtsOfFashion  #ArtsOfFashionAward  #ArtsOfFashionScholarship  #ArtsOfFashionJury  #Marrakech  #MuseeYSLMarrakech  #myslm  #ArtsOfFashionCompetition  #SanFrancisco  #AsianArtMuseum  #ArtsOfFashionMasterClass  #Paris  #MuseeArtsDecoratifs  #madparis  #Creativity  #KnowHow  #Craftsmanship  #Design  #Audacity  #Innovation  #Diversity  #ManishArora  #MaisonLesage  #MaisonLemarie  #JacquesMajorelle  #VillaOasis  #YKK 

➕COMPETITION ➕AOF ➕JURORS ➕2019 ➕MAY24 ➕MOROCCO ➕Musée YVES SAINT LAURENT Marrakech 📌AOF PRELIMINARY JUDGING 2019| MAY24 @myslmarrakech  OASIS - The Villa Bou Saf Saf that Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Bergé acquired when they purchased the Jardin Majorelle in 1980 is the sanctuary to which they would retreat repeatedly throughout the remainder of their lives. Surrounded by vast, immaculately tended gardens populated with cacti and towering palms, the home is both an architectural masterpiece and, for fashion aficionados, the most intimate tribute to Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Bergé. It is also the site in which the couple’s ashes are spread. The association, created in 2001 to safeguard the ecological, historical and cultural heritage represented by the Jardin Majorelle, was recognized as a non-profit organization in 2011. It has become the Fondation Jardin Majorelle, promoting water conservation and planting of ecologically responsible plants that are suited to the climate of the city. You’ll find Papyrus, Philodendron and the prickly pear among other beauties. @jardinmajorellemarrakech  Photo | The Villa Bou Saf Saf renamed Villa Oasis by Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Bergé. #ArtsOfFashionFoundation  #ArtsOfFashion  #ArtsOfFashionAward  #ArtsOfFashionScholarship  #ArtsOfFashionJury  #Marrakech  #MuseeYSLMarrakech  #myslm  #ArtsOfFashionCompetition  #SanFrancisco  #AsianArtMuseum  #ArtsOfFashionMasterClass  #Paris  #MuseeArtsDecoratifs  #madparis  #Creativity  #KnowHow  #Craftsmanship  #Design  #Audacity  #Innovation  #Diversity  #ManishArora  #MaisonLesage  #MaisonLemarie  #JacquesMajorelle  #VillaOasis  #YKK

It is for this reason that the artist will name his property Bou Saf Saf. After having built his villa in a Neo Moorish style, then the workshops in another Berber-style building flanked by a tower, the Majorelle workshops in Marrakech managed by his wife - Andrée Longueville, allowed the artist to make craft pieces of fine leather goods, painted wooden furniture, and to participate in 1925 at the international exhibition of decorative arts in Paris, as well as the decoration of the hall and the ceiling of the restaurant of the legendary hotel Mamounia. @jardinmajorellemarrakech  Photo | The Villa Bou Saf Saf renamed Villa Oasis by Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Bergé. #ArtsOfFashionFoundation  #ArtsOfFashion  #ArtsOfFashionAward  #ArtsOfFashionScholarship  #ArtsOfFashionJury  #Marrakech  #MuseeYSLMarrakech  #myslm  #ArtsOfFashionCompetition  #SanFrancisco  #AsianArtMuseum  #ArtsOfFashionMasterClass  #Paris  #MuseeArtsDecoratifs  #madparis  #Creativity  #KnowHow  #Craftsmanship  #Design  #Audacity  #Innovation  #Diversity  #ManishArora  #MaisonLesage  #MaisonLemarie  #JacquesMajorelle  #VillaOasis  #YKK

@myslmarrakech  BLUE – When the Jardin Majorelle was bought by Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Bergé in 1980, they turned the painting studio of Jacques Majorelle to a museum dedicated to Islamic culture. In 2011, it was converted into a museum dedicated to the Berber Art and designed by Bill Willis. The Berber Museum was officially inaugurated under the High Patronage of Mohammed VI, King of Morocco. The museum offers a rich panorama of the creativity of the Berber people, the most ancient of North Africa. More than 600 objects from the Rif to the Sahara Desert, collected by Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Bergé, demonstrate the richness and diversity of this still-vibrant culture. @jardinmajorellemarrakech  Photo – @sukheeko  | The former studio of the Orientalism painter Jacques Majorelle #ArtsOfFashionFoundation  #ArtsOfFashion  #ArtsOfFashionAward  #ArtsOfFashionScholarship  #ArtsOfFashionJury  #Marrakech  #MuseeYSLMarrakech  #myslm  #ArtsOfFashionCompetition  #SanFrancisco  #AsianArtMuseum  #ArtsOfFashionMasterClass  #Paris  #MuseeArtsDecoratifs  #madparis  #Creativity  #KnowHow  #Craftsmanship  #Design  #Audacity  #Innovation  #Diversity  #ManishArora  #MaisonLesage  #MaisonLemarie  #JacquesMajorelle  #MuséeBerbere  #YKK

@myslmarrakech  BLUE – Jacques Majorelle gradually purchased additional land, extending the garden to its actual size. It became his life work. Majorelle built a lust impressive garden planted with coconuts, banana trees, bougainvilliers, water lilies, yucca, jasmine, palm trees, bamboos that will enrich for 40 years by adding thousands of plants collected around the world, some of which are extremely rare. In 1947, the garden proved costly to run and Majorelle opened it to the public with an admission fee. In the 50’s, he had to sell the house and land, and the garden fell into disrepair. Having learned that the Jardin Majorelle was earmarked for destruction to make way for a retail development in 1980, Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Bergé purchased it to save it to posterity. Longtime friend of the couple - Madison Cox, an American landscape designer, contributed to the rebirth of the Jardin Majorelle and wrote a book about it: ´Majorelle: A Moroccan Oasis’ The Jardin Majorelle is today the most popular tourist attraction in all of Morocco. @jardinmajorellemarrakech  Photo @lucian_broscatean  – The Jardin Majorelle #ArtsOfFashionFoundation  #ArtsOfFashion  #ArtsOfFashionAward  #ArtsOfFashionScholarship  #ArtsOfFashionJury  #Marrakech  #MuseeYSLMarrakech  #myslm  #ArtsOfFashionCompetition  #SanFrancisco  #AsianArtMuseum  #ArtsOfFashionMasterClass  #Paris  #MuseeArtsDecoratifs  #madparis  #Creativity  #KnowHow  #Craftsmanship  #Design  #Audacity  #Innovation  #Diversity  #ManishArora  #MaisonLesage  #MaisonLemarie  #JacquesMajorelle  #MuséeBerbere  #YKK

@myslmarrakech  BLUE – Jacques Majorelle (1886-1962) was the son of a celebrated Art Nouveau furniture designer, Louis Majorelle. He received his art education at the prestigious École des Beaux Arts of Nancy. In 1917, he travelled to Morocco, where he fell in love with Marrakech. Majorelle drew inspiration for his paintings from all his Mediterranean travels. In 1923, he eventually decided to settle in Marrakech and he bought a plot, situated on the border of a palm grove. He began planting a luxuriant garden, which would become worldwide known as the Jardin Majorelle. @jardinmajorellemarrakech  In 1931, Majorelle commissioned the architect Paul Sinoir to design a Cubist Villa within his garden as his painting studio. He painted the villa in a vibrant shade of the blue in 1937, which now carries his name: Majorelle Blue.

@myslmarrakech  WOMEN – “Christo. Femmes 1962-1968” The star of the first exhibition in a museum dedicated to Fashion for the audacious environmental artist Christo, and in solo, was the ''Wedding Dress'' (1967), speaking for itself. "It will be an exhibit on bodies - said the artist - on living bodies and women's bodies. There are no sculptures or dummies but living creatures''. “These works are so significant now and, even more so, in this elegant museum, whose architecture seems to be inspired by the body movement and the natural owing of the fabric.” @christojeanneclaude  This never seen before exhibition, drawings and collages ´transcend the boundaries between fashion and art, fashion and clothing, clothing and skin. They also defy the theoretical barriers between sculpture and performance, sculpture, and collage. They bear witness to how Christo’s artistic output could be paradoxically related to fashion and to traditional sculpture ranging from Tanagra to Bernini and Rodin’. @jardinmajorellemarrakech  If you missed this exhibition from Christo related to fashion, there is still an extensive catalog published at Gallimard: @editions_gallimard  Photo – The Wedding Dress of Christo (1967) at the Yves Saint Laurent Museum of Marrakech. #ArtsOfFashionFoundation  #ArtsOfFashion  #ArtsOfFashionAward  #ArtsOfFashionScholarship  #ArtsOfFashionJury  #Marrakech  #MuseeYSLMarrakech  #myslm  #ArtsOfFashionCompetition  #SanFrancisco  #AsianArtMuseum  #ArtsOfFashionMasterClass  #Paris  #MuseeArtsDecoratifs  #madparis  #Creativity  #KnowHow  #Craftsmanship  #Design  #Audacity  #Innovation  #Diversity  #ManishArora  #MaisonLesage  #MaisonLemarie  #Christo  #YKK

Femmes 1962-1968” Along with his late wife Jeanne-Claude, Christo has spent the last 60 years repeatedly redefining the parameters of installation and land art, creating a body of work that defies categorization and recognizes no limit to possibility. Oil barrels (1962) were a particular focus of their early work in Paris - on the one hand, they were cheap and easy to stack to formally imposing effect on the other, their normal function alluded to the West’s dependency on oil, opening up a frame of reference that encompassed politics, economics, and environmental matters. The artists moved to New York (1964), eventually acquiring American citizenship. They developed their own enterprise. In order to maintain artistic independence, they sold preparatory drawings and models to finance larger projects. Any space, from city streets to desert valleys, can become a canvas for Christo and Jeanne-Claude. Christo still self-funds everything he does this way, accepting no subsidies or official partnerships -Digby Warde-Aldam for Artsy.net - June 18, 2018 The 84-year old artist will finally achieve the Christo and Jeanne-Claude’s project, initiated in 1962, to wrap the Arch of Triumph in Paris with 25,000 square meters of silvery blue recyclable fabric in the Fall 2020, while the Centre Pompidou will highlight his work in the Spring 2020. @christojeanneclaude  Photo | Collage 1967 - La Fille Avec Chapeau Empaquetée et Deux Empaquetages (ou La Fille avec 3 Empaquetages), for Opening Night Fashion Show, Museum of Merchandise, Art Council, Philadelphia @jardinmajorellemarrakech  ArtsOfFashionFoundation #ArtsOfFashion  #ArtsOfFashionAward  #ArtsOfFashionScholarship  #ArtsOfFashionJury  #Marrakech #MuseeYSLMarrakech  #myslm  #ArtsOfFashionCompetition #SanFrancisco  #AsianArtMuseum  #ArtsOfFashionMasterClass  #Paris  #MuseeArtsDecoratifs  #madparis  #Creativity  #KnowHow  #Craftsmanship  #Design  #Audacity  #Innovation  #Diversity  #ManishArora  #MaisonLesage  #MaisonLemarie  #Christo  #YKK

Femmes 1962-1968” In the temporary exhibition space of the Yves Saint Laurent Museum in Marrakech, public was invited to discover an intimate Christo’s collection of art works, included delicate drawings and collages from the sixties, reunited for the first time, curated by lonely Christo - translating meaningfulness and a true relevance of still today's difficult fights of women. @jardinmajorellemarrakech  Christo Vladimirov Javacheff and Jeanne-Claude Denat de Guillebon were a married couple who created environmental works of art. They were born on the same day, same hour on June 13, 1935 Christo in Gabrovo, Bulgaria, and Jeanne-Claude in Casablanca, Morocco. Their works include the wrapping of the Reichstag in Berlin and the Pont-Neuf bridge in Paris, the 39 km artwork called Running Fence in Sonoma and Marin counties in California, and The Gates in New York City's Central Park. Although they worked as creative equal on all their art projects, credit was given to "Christo" only, until 1994: a conscious decision because of the prejudices against female artists. They also flew in separate planes: in case one crashed, the other could continue their work. Jeanne-Claude died, aged 74, on November 18, 2009 in New York. @christojeanneclaude  #ArtsOfFashionFoundation  #ArtsOfFashion  #ArtsOfFashionAward  #ArtsOfFashionScholarship  #ArtsOfFashionJury  #Marrakech  #MuseeYSLMarrakech  #myslm  #ArtsOfFashionCompetition  #SanFrancisco  #AsianArtMuseum  #ArtsOfFashionMasterClass  #Paris  #MuseeArtsDecoratifs  #madparis  #Creativity  #KnowHow  #Craftsmanship  #Design  #Audacity  #Innovation  #Diversity  #ManishArora  #MaisonLesage  #MaisonLemarie  #Christo  #YKK

In 1960, Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Bergé bought this remarquable Ivorian sculpture from Charles Ratton, an art dealer in Paris. The Senufo bird, named for the African community that had produced it, was the couple’s very first acquisition. Saint Laurent and Bergé would go on to assemble an incredible art collection. According to Senufo belief, the Hornbill or Kalao, along with the tortoise, the crocodile, the chameleon and the snake - was one of the first living creatures. The long phallic beak touching it’s swollen belly suggesting pregnancy, represents the dual forces of the male and female procreation, symbolizing the need for both to ensure continuity of the whole community. The image of this bird is taken from the native yellow-casques Hornbill, which the Senufo believe is the master of among birds and a symbol of intellectual power, significant of the knowledge the elders hope to impart on the young initiates. When Pierre Bergé eventually decided to sell their collection at auction in 2009, this sculpture was the only work he kept.

In 1965, a 22-year-old Deneuve was invited to meet the Queen. Unsure of what to wear, she took the suggestion of her then-husband, David Bailey, to approach Yves Saint Laurent, a rising star in Paris fashion. Saint Laurent, not yet established in his own right but working at the house of Christian Dior, made her a long white crêpe de Chine dress with red embroidery, which marked ‘the start of a long professional collaboration and personal friendship’, Deneuve said recently, recalling how ´silent complicity, our crazy laughter and our melancholy’ bonded her to a man who nobly designed clothes to beautify women’ - Jess Cartner Morley for The Guardian (Jan. 15, 2019) Difficult to do not compare today with Anthony Vaccarello and sublime Anja Rubik’s beautiful relationship. @anthonyvaccarello  @anja_rubik  Photo | Entrance to the Galerie at the Yves Saint Laurent Museum Marrakech - Catherine Deneuve by Andre Rau | Yves Saint Laurent’s iris jacket - Embroidery by François Lesage @andrerauphotography  #ArtsOfFashionFoundation  #ArtsOfFashion  #ArtsOfFashionAward  #ArtsOfFashionScholarship  #ArtsOfFashionJury  #Marrakech  #MuseeYSLMarrakech  #myslm  #ArtsOfFashionCompetition  #SanFrancisco  #AsianArtMuseum  #ArtsOfFashionMasterClass  #Paris  #MuseeArtsDecoratifs  #madparis  #Creativity  #KnowHow  #Craftsmanship  #Design  #Audacity  #Innovation  #Diversity  #ManishArora  #MaisonLesage  #FrançoisLesage  #MaisonLemarie  #CatherineDeneuve  #YKK

It was Pierre Bergé’s wish to greatly enrich the library by donating important and rare volumes, dating from the 17th to 20th centuries, dealing with the history, literature and traditional arts of Morocco. The library also includes an important collection of books devoted to gardens, landscaping and botany donated by Madison Cox, as well as volumes concerning Yves Saint Laurent and Fashion. @jardinmajorellemarrakech  Photo @lucian_broscatean  #ArtsOfFashionFoundation  #ArtsOfFashion  #ArtsOfFashionAward  #ArtsOfFashionScholarship  #ArtsOfFashionJury  #Marrakech  #MuseeYSLMarrakech  #myslm  #ArtsOfFashionCompetition  #SanFrancisco  #AsianArtMuseum  #ArtsOfFashionMasterClass  #Paris  #MuseeArtsDecoratifs  #madparis  #Creativity  #KnowHow  #Craftsmanship  #Design  #Audacity  #Innovation  #Diversity  #ManishArora  #MaisonLesage  #MaisonLemarie  #YKK
