Fadila’s new collection serves as a reflection of Andalusian culture and the profound connections linking this region to the rich tapestry of Moroccan culture and civilization.

Featuring approximately twenty models that blend chic aesthetics with timeless appeal, Fadila El Gadi’s collection emphasizes the tradition and core values of craftsmanship that form the very DNA of her creations. The essence of this commitment is eloquently expressed through embroideries that Fadila El Gadi catapulted into the realm of absolute contemporaneity.

In this collection, Fadila El Gadi has collaborated with luxury artisans, including the illustrious Sevillian hatter Maquedano, who boasts an impressive legacy of 125 years. This collaboration exemplifies a fusion of expertise, where Fadila El Gadi’s vision converges with the time-honored craftsmanship of Maquedano, resulting in a collection that not only pays homage to tradition but also embraces modernity.
