Caftans are magical, elegant, flowing garments made of luscious printed cotton or silk that instantly transform the wearer into a truly ethereal creature.  The caftan originated in Mesopotamia in about 600 B.C. but didn’t take America by storm until a full 2,566 years later, in the 1960’s, and then only thanks to the suggestion of legendary Vogue magazine editor Diana Vreeland, the original “Devil Who Wore Prada.”


Elizabeth Taylor was also a big caftan wearer.  When her clothes went up for auction at Christie's late last year, the prices her caftans fetched blew everyone away.
