The Avenir Museum of Design and Merchandising presents “The Allure of the Moroccan Caftan.”

The exhibition, curated by Marcella Wells, showcases how caftans — a traditional form of dress in many Middle Eastern and European countries — are being adopted into the haute couture scene in Morocco. The collection is on loan from Fort Collins businesswoman and Moroccan traveler Mary Biggers. The exhibition, free and open to the public, will be on display until Dec. 15. An informative talk by Wells on Nov. 16 at 7 p.m. will discuss the contrast of tradition and high fashion trends in Morocco.
