Jimi met Colette in early 1968 when he walked into her dress shop. "The shop was soon discovered by Hendrix, who took to hanging out all day on the church bench playing his guitar, which, Colette recalls, “blew everyone’s mind.” The short white jacket with beaded fringe that he would wear when he performed at Woodstock came from there. The leathers they made required several fittings and were expensive, about $300, which was twice the monthly rent on the place. Only rock stars and the elite could afford them."
A trip to Morocco was an adventure for Jimi. One of Jimi's rare moments for a vacation. He was worked to death by Michael Jeffery.
He flew from New York via Paris to Marrakech to meet great friends. The Franco-Moroccan, Stella Douglas and Colette Mimram, Colette was one of the great loves of Jimi's lives.
We spent several weeks traveling the country by car, to go shopping for everything that was Moroccan - hashish and outrageous clothes.
