Glamorous Ghabga


Ramadan is a time for personal reflection, worshipping, and for spending quality time with your family and friends. And for those lovely family gatherings and Ramadan’s Ghabgas, one item most women are eager to slip in is the kaftan. Long flowing and loose, kaftans are heaven sent for those who want to eat from every single dish on the futoor table and have desserts with tea right after. So here are some of AlOthman’s chic and glamorous kaftans which we have in-store now.

From top,  Mathew Williamson’s  printed v-neck kaftan from our new Fall collection, instantly reminded me of Rachel Zoe. It has a cinched waist with a golden brooch to hold it together. Wear your hair loose and wavy and put on your highest platform peep-toe heels for that Zoe-effect. The kaftan is priced at KD 519.


If you’re looking for kaftans with chic embellishments of jewels and beads, Temperly’spurple kaftan from our new Fall collection, KD 479, has a cinched waist styles that offers a feminine silhouette.
