Marrakech, Morocco, Dec 7 (IBNS): India's leading bookstore chain Oxford Bookstores on Friday launched its first overseas store in the Morocco's Marrakech city.

The bookstore, Katakali, is located in the luxurious Taj Palace Hotel at the foothills of the Atlas Mountains in the exclusive palm-filled oasis of the Palmeraie.

Oxford Bookstores Director Priti Paul said: "Marrakech is also my home now as is India and I'm truly delighted to bring a treasure-trove of beautiful publications to the city.

"Katakali, which has been called a boudoir for books by booklovers will evolve to earn a place in the hearts of Marrakechis and to become the city's most treasured bookstore."

Renowned fashion designer Tamy Tazi will grace the occasion later on Friday in Morocco with her presence for a book signing function of her book 'Caftans'.

Tami Tazi has set her own special mark of distinction on contemporary Moroccan dress: ceremonial or everyday caftans, djellabas, selhams (capes), jackets and serouals.
