On Thursday, less than three weeks after a museum dedicated to the fashion pioneer was inaugurated in his home city of Paris, the Yves Saint Laurent museum in Marrakech, the sunny Moroccan city beloved by the late designer, opened its doors to the public.

The Marrakech museum, designed by the French architectural firm, Studio KO, sprawls across an area of 4,000 square metres (4,783 square yards) and is located near the Majorelle Garden, which Yves Saint Laurent and his partner, Pierre Berge, bought in 1980.
