About The Speaker
Karim Adduchi is an illustrator, painter, and fashion designer. Karim attended the University of Fine Arts in Barcelona and then move to Amsterdam to study fashion design at the Gerrit Rietveld School, where he graduated with the collection "She Knows Why the Caged Bird Sings" (2015). Karim draws his material from Amazigh carpets and fabrics, natural fibers, and wool hand-woven, transformed into dresses, trousers, shirts, and tunics. With this loan from his country of origin, Karim pays homage to the Amazigh woman of northern Morocco. Admiration for the courage of these women turns into divinization as suggested by his second collection, "She Has 99 Names", successfully shown in November 2017 in Amsterdam. Karim has been selected by Forbes 30 under 30, as one of the most infuential and innovative designer to follow, and awarded by the Amsterdam city with the Culture business Award for his capacity to transform culture and bring awarness and community from Morocco to the world.
