Keeping Up with Kuwaiti Kaftans

It's no secret that I love clothes, and especially Kaftans. I think I first became interested in kaftans at almost 9 years ago when I first started building my humble collection of kaftans. It was fun becoming aware of all the different fabrics and the use of vibrant (and sometimes neutral) colors to create something wonderful to wear during Ramadan by local and regional talents. That is why I suppose I have a great love of Kaftans. They are easy-to-wear, flowing, and colorful. They always make me feel as though I am on vacation at an exotic location. Just throw them on, wear a belt around your waist with shorts or jeans to go out with beautiful jewellery, and you're good to go.

Living in Kuwait means that when shopping for caftans, the choices are endless!! And I'm so glad to see the group of local designers whom I appreciate their talents and whom I regard as legit ones are growing by the season with designs that make you want to buy the entire collection. With the help of my dear friend, we managed to take photos of some really nice designs. And that's just a sample of some of the great local talents we have right here in K-town.

Who's your favorite local caftans designer?
