This Kaftan was designed for the Brisbane based Brand, Bonita Collective. Characterised by their vibrancy and unique textures, this kaftan is a reflection of my own personal aesthetic of lively patterns, motifs and colours from a variety of sources.
Bonita Collective focuses on celebrating colour, comfort and glamour and this particular design emphasis’s these qualities. It fuses ethnic, embellished and exotic textiles that celebrate the spectrum and nod to influences from all over the world.
My inspiration came from far and wide. I have always had a fascination with the Greek evil eye and wanted to design a kaftan reflected it in a wearable and glamorous way.
The process of this design involved hand painting the evil eyes onto canvas before the images were scanned and screen printed onto silk.
