Casablanca – “I want to start a revolution,” says Moroccan Asmaa Benkirane, who will soon introduce Morocco’s entrancing attire, the Caftan, to the residents of Miami, Florida, in the United States.
The magic of the Moroccan Caftan is increasingly sweeping the globe, enchanting beholders from all cultures and nationalities. Soon, fashion adorers in Miami will be added to the list of the Caftan’s international lovers.
Born to a Moroccan father and a Spanish mother, Asmaa Benkirane is another inspiring ambassador of the Moroccan Caftan abroad.
Asmaa intends to build a cultural bridge between the Atlas Mountains and Miami, by introducing the Caftan to its residents through her glamorous boutique, Le Beau Maroc, expected to launch its first shop on Saturday, March 8th, at Semilla Eatery & Bar in Miami Beach.
“I think Miami is a really good niche because there is a lot of Latin influence and they’ll be much more open to wearing something different,” says Asmaa, quoted by the website Miaminewstimes.
According to Asmaa, the Caftan will revolutionize the fashion scene in Miami, mainly because it is “sexy yet sophisticated at the same time.”
Yet, mind you, Asmaa’s Caftan is a different experience. Born to two parents from different backgrounds, her conceptualization of the Caftan mixes two rich cultures, the Moroccan and the Spanish.
For Asmaa, Le Beau Maroc will allow people in Miami to experience and perceive beauty outside their cultural “box.”
“What I try to transmit to the people of Miami is to try something different from the typical gala dress.” “You can be sexy in a different way. Bring something original,” she said.
The Caftan is not the first Moroccan cultural icon that Asmaa has introduced to Miami. Argan oil is the other unique Moroccan specialty that Asmaa has shared with the residents of this American city.
