As the exhibition’s theme was exotic birds, it featured designs with bright colours. ‘All the women you can see resemble exotic birds, some of the capes have pink feathers like parrots,’’ the designer told Morocco World News (MWN).
The French designer highlighted that she draws inspiration from everyday life and the beauty of people.
Stella Cadente made the rather emphatic point of how she has always found inspiration in Moroccan culture and heritage, particularly in Caftans. “I was so inspired by Moroccan traditions, I love Caftans. So, we’ve been working with the atelier, and the first time was very challenging.”
For the first time, the designer showcased designs with homemade embroidery. “It’s the first time I’ve presented homemade embroidery, and you’ll see it on the sleeves, top, and skirts,” she explained.
Describing the Mandarin Oriental hotel a “paradise,” the designer said that she prefers that models behave as they would in real life and have fun while wearing her dresses rather than having them walk back and forth in the exhibition.
“I enjoy watching how people carry themselves in their attire; it must be both comfortable and unique,” she explained.
The French designer’s passion for Moroccan culture compelled her to make it her permanent residence.“Though I love Paris and had my entire life there, my heart belonged with Morocco,” she enthused.
“I then made the decision to relocate here [Morocco] due to the local culture, handicrafts, and manufacturing practices, and my dream is now a reality,” she said.
Highlighting Morocco’s talented youth and potential, she said, “There is so much energy in this country, and so many young designers full of talent and an enormous appetite for doing things, that I’m confident this country has a bright future, and I’m proud and happy to be a part of it.”
