The 16th edition of the event is set to take place on Saturday May 12th at the Palais des Congress and will be an opportunity for 12 designers – including Cain Allah El Batoul, Dar Oum Al Ghait and Siham El Habti – to highlight their talents.
This year's Caftan has been given the theme Treasures of Ibn Battuta, in reference to the legendary Moroccan explorer who visited most of the known Islamic world over a 30-year period during the 14th century.
It is thought that he travelled around three times as far as Marco Polo during his life.
Acclaimed dancer Jaiss Zinoun has been called on to choreograph the high-profile fashion show, which will also feature a display of productions from talented up-and-coming designers.
Each young designer will be tasked with creating eight outfits especially for Caftan 2012.
Recommendations include the Riad Cannelle, a five-star hotel located just a few minutes' walk from the bustling Jemaa el Fna square and the city's train station.
