Before the pandemic started, I was reading a magazine about Jardin Majorelle in Marrakech. A place where I have always wanted to visit.
I love the garden, how it's been built and layout. Majorelle Garden, that was home for power-house fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent, are now iconic cultural landmarks of the Moroccan city of Marrakech. He and his partner bought a cobalt blue villa as his vacation home in 1966.
Right in the middle of the urban hustle of Marrakech, the Majorelle Garden and the colourful Villa Oasis are world-class landmarks. The history of the Majorelle compound is a Franco-American saga that counted on six gifted and visionary men: French Orientalist painter and plant collector Jacques Majorelle; legendary fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent; YSL’s partner in life and business, collector, and philanthropist Pierre Bergé; French decorator Jacques Grange; American expat and architect Bill Willis; and American garden designer Madison Cox.
