Postcards From Marrakech

Posted by Drake, 2 years, 8 months ago

Local stylesetter Stefania Yarhi has long trained her eye on the street. Whether its outside the tents of New York Fashion Week or a beach on the coast of Italy, the photographer and writer behind the celebrated Textstyles blog has a stamp-filled passport attesting to her dedicated documentation of international street style.

On June 8, Yarhi will launch Fashion 2.0, a summer talk + mixer series exploring fashion's evolution in the digital world. The first edition will focus on, natch, global street style, and will feature a RSVP Room 222 talk on the very subject with special guests Randi Bergman (Executive Digital Editor of FASHION Magazine), Stephanie Mark (Co-Founder of the Coveteur) and fashion and lifestyle blogger Gracie Carroll. (And since its also the seventh anniversary of Textstyles, a celebration on the Sky Yard.) The monthly event will run in July and August, focusing on e-commerce and the future of fashion blogging, respectively.

Earlier this Spring, Yarhi visited the Moroccan city Marrakech, which may be familiar to any of our guests who have had the chance to visit our much-loved rooftop patio this summer. Below are five snaps from her trip, and commentary on what makes this city such an enduring inspiration.
