It is finally time to say goodbye to winter. Spring is finally around the corner! Let Rosie Minako show you the beautiful Taghazout in Morocco.
Morocco is such a beauty! I have been fortunate to have had the opportunity to visit such a gorgeous country. I spent a few weeks in the lovely coastal region in Taghazout, where I woke up to the beautiful beach and rode horses along the beach as well as the mountains every day.
I also visited the local market, saw the work of local carpenters first-hand, and rode camels in the desert. Traveling is definitely the best teacher in the world! The trip has been a journey of self-discovery. Not only have I learned more about myself. I have also immersed myself in the unique Moroccan traditional culture and experienced the other side of the world - North Africa.
Moroccan culture is embedded with very strong values and deep-rooted traditions. I followed the etiquette rules while I was in Taghazout. In a Muslim country, clothing is modest. People get offended by clothes that do not cover the legs or shoulders, especially in the more conservative areas. As a way to show my respect, I always make sure my dresses are long enough. In this photoshoot, I worked with a few local Moroccan designers to showcase the Moroccan fashion style.
What is most remarkable about this magical place is people radiate positive energy wherever they go - the nature must have done wonders on their mindset! Moroccan people appear to form more meaningful connections and are less stressed about their everyday life. They are always so happy, laughing and giggling; their laughter is contagious! If there is one thing to take on from my trip to Morocco, it would be their optimistic attitude toward life. I hope to bring this energy back to England and continue to spread love and positivity. ♡
