Rabat – Moroccan fashion designer, Karim Adduchi was listed among the 2018 Forbes 30 under 30 for Arts and Culture.
The painter and fashion designer was born in Imzouren, Morocco in 1988. At the age of five, he moved Barcelona. Because he could speak neither Spanish nor Catalan, Adduchi took to drawing as a form of communication.
In 2011 he moved to Amsterdam, where he is currently based, to pursue his education in fashion.
After graduating in 2015 with a collection called “She Knows Why the Caged Bird Sings,” he showcased a critically acclaimed collection “She Lives Behind the Courtyard Door,” in 2016.
“I am extremely honored to be selected by the prestigious Forbes magazine, after only 3 collections, and I think this is only the beginning,” the 29-year-old artist told HuffPost Maroc.
Adduchi has used his nostalgia for Morocco in several of his creations. “I am proud to see my Moroccan roots and culture put forward in such a platform, and I know that I still have a lot more to show and tell the world,” he said.
