Caftan dazzles fashion world


Caftan dazzles fashion world

MOROCCO - The ticket to this year's Caftan Festival was the gateway to the fashion event of the year.
Only the finest Haute Couture gowns were showcased, leaving all in attendance impressed.
The theme for this year's show was Women of Legend and paid homage to women like Coco Chanel and Marilyn Monroe.
Lebanese fashion designer Dany Atrache said: "Here we are talking of a traditional garment that is centuries old yet, it looks as new.
"It is not easy to reach this level of perfection."
Every year 15 fashion designers are selected from 50 candidates and are given four months to prepare their collection which needs to be made up of eight caftans.
And the pressure is on for the show's fashion designers.
"There are new creations as well as new ideas we want to propose to the public, and we are not sure about the reaction it'll get," said designer Meriyem Boussikouk.
The caftan is a garment that has been around for centuries.
