Lalla Salma chaired the inauguration of the Yves Saint Laurent Museum

Princess Lalla Salma presided the inauguration ceremony of the museum Yves Saint Laurent in Marrakesh. Dedicated to the work of the couturier, the museum hosts part of the Pierre Bergé-Yves Saint Laurent Foundation collection. The Yves Saint Laurent Museum, inaugurated by Princess Lalla Salma, includes a permanent exhibition space of 400 m², presenting the work of Yves Saint Laurent in an original scenography by Christophe Martin. The museum also hosts a temporary showroom. The first will be devoted to the painter Jacques Majorelle. The museum also has a research library with more than 5,000 books, a 150-seat auditorium, a bookstore and a café with terrace. The design of this project, with an area of 4,000 m², was entrusted to Studio KO, an architectural firm founded by Olivier Marty and Karl Fournier.
