THE SOFTNESS: an experiential Caftan-curriculum for the mind. A soundtrack of smooth jamz, mindful movements and powerful poses.
A fashion show commences where Krewes/Houses/Teams take to the runway and reveal what’s underneath their caftan for the gods, for the fans and for the camera - peppered with celebrity appearances by local drag and burlesque musicians.
ALL CAFTANS ON DECK - The event climax is a Soul Train inspired Runway for the camera with MC Precious Ephemera.
Everyone (that's YOU) will have their moment to twirl and turn on the catwalk in their own London, Paris, Marigny Caftan Fantasy!
THIS IS QUEER CHURCH
The Caftan Sunday Salon is an Ephemeral Experience dedicated to radical self-acceptance and vintage nostalgia through bohemian fashion, glamour and social performance. We welcome all bodies, expressions of gender, and manifestations of love and desire. We encourage community dialogue in the interest of Artistic Excellence and Equity and seek to uphold a standard of tolerance, inclusion and support.
The Cathedral Venue of the Hotel Peter and Paul is the perfect Grand Lux setting for New Orleans locals to gently sashay afternoon away in this exquisite epicurean fete culminating in a regal Sunset Hour rendezvous. Chicago-based performance artist Jyldo known for "Battlestar Fantastica" and “Soft Rock Sanctuary” brings the mood with smooth jamz & saxophone solos.
