When my friend Lisa told me about her latest business endeavor, Ginger Caftan, I was super excited for her (and her business partner Nan). I was excited to design her logo/branding and knew she would do amazing things. Several weeks ago she hosted a Ginger Caftan trunk show in her beautiful home. Complete with a signature ginger mocktail and delicious catered Mediterranean food, the trunk show was a hit and nearly every piece was sold out. So proud of my friend!
To be honest, when Lisa first told me about the caftan show, I didn't hesitate to say yes to attend the show for support -- but I am not a caftan person. I instantly thought I would look like Mrs. Roper in a mumu. But after seeing the fabrics (from vintage styles to bright patterns to neutral tones), the expertly designed details (like pockets!! I love pockets!) and the flattering and comfortable fit on all body types, I can now say I'm a caftan convert!
The next Ginger Caftan trunk show will be Friday, August 28th from 6 pm to 10 pm at Piper's Shoe Parlor in San Francisco. The new collection will include super soft linen, chambray, French beach stripes and a few fun retro prints in three sizes (S, M, L).
