I’ve been a big fan of Rosita’s work since last year’s Malta Fashion Week. Before going to her show I first wanted to get to know her, so I interviewed her then I went to her show and I simply fell in love with her work. This year, she presented some equally breathtaking kaftans once again… So of course, when Rosita wanted to work with me to create my own custom hand painted silk kaftan, I couldn’t say no!
I met up with Rosita and I showed her pictures of colours and designs that I like. Rosita took the time to understand what I find appealing. She asked me a few questions, such as how long I want the kaftan to be, what sort of neckline I want, where I want most of the colour and pattern to be focussed on, and finally, she measured me.
Shortly after, I received some teaser photos from Rosita. Here’s a photo of her painting my kaftan! 😀
After Rosita was happy with her painting, she cured the silk and sewed it into a kaftan. She asked me to go back to her for a fitting to make sure that everything is ok so she can finish off the final details.
After a short time, I got my own custom hand painted silk kaftan and I couldn’t be happier with it! It’s so comfortable to wear, I think it’s very flattering for my figure and it’s one truly unique piece!

If you love silk kaftans but you prefer buying a ready made one, you can also find some ready made silk kaftans hand painted by Rosita at Luxury Outlet in Sliema.
