You are a frequent visitor to Marrakech; what draws you back time and again?
I go to Marrakech twice a year, often to buy vintage carpets. I am constantly inspired by the colors and the design of the city. I also love the food, the people and the landscape; it’s always a place for more discovery.
Is there one cafe in the city you particularly love?
For lunch, I like to go to Nomad for moroccan salad and lamb tagine.

If you could visit Marrakech for only 24 hours, how would you spend the day?
I would invite all my friends to stay at the small, beautifully appointed hotel Jnane Tamsna in Palmeraie about 20 minutes from the city center. During the day, everyone could head to the souk for some shopping. jnane.com/jnane-tamsna

Akbar Delights for East-meets-West Fashion; Maison du Kaftan, a classic for kaftans; Majorelle Gardens gift shop, a beautifully curated shop of local crafts; 33 Rue Majorelle, a concept shop, Marrakech-style; and Lalla, a boutique with a stylish French owner.
