Festimode Casablanca Fashion Week 2012, Day 3
The third and last day of FCFW was a full evening again, with three designers showing their collections: Noureddine Amir, Ghitta Laskrouif and Hatice Gökce.
As a child Noureddine Amir dreamed about being a couturier. But he became more than that. Because he doesn’t want to obey to the laws of fashion – by presenting a collection every season plus following the trends – he starts designing theater and film-costumes and mixes his creations with installations. He’d rather be an artist without boundaries. He admires Issey Miyake, and it shows in his collections which are sculptures almost made of raffia, linen or wool.
Ghitta Laskrouif presented her first collection at FCFW in 2007 under the label Mozarabe. This edition she introduces her latest project G. She is fascinated by movement and music and therefor participates regularly with modern dancers and performers. She also likes to play and experiment with different materials, nowadays she focuses on more fabrics with an ecological origin. Her silhouettes are simple and architectural.
Hatice Gökce is originally from Turkey and she designs mens and womenswear. She is known for her experimental design and use of innovative fabrics. She is also the founder and board member of Fashion Designers Association (MTD) in addition to her active roles in all kinds of civil society and social activities. Gökçe has undersigned many achievements on her avant-garde designs and extraordinary activities both in Turkey and abroad.
