I have always loved the Caftan yet was afraid to buy one for fear of looking as though I was wearing a Mumu. I thought I would share this video I ran across on YouTube featuring the Australian Designer Camilla Franks who makes the most beautiful silk prints into stunning clothing. Just look at what she does with these Caftans! Nothing Mumu about these :P

I especially love how she tucks the dress into underwear to shorten it etc.

As a side note, there is a Caftan listed at half price on the Neimans site-BG has one but will price match. There are not many left.....

Love it! Now I really want a caftan! No oppurtunity to wear it though. Would probably look crazy doing laundry wearing it or taking the kids to the dentist:P
But it is Fun to watch, thanks for sharing!
