‘Panarea – the Aeolian island’ by Saz Mifsud will exhibit a collection of kaftans, scarves and silk accessories inspired by the feelings that the Sicilian island of Panarea will awaken within anyone who visits it. All fabrics in this collection were created by Saz Mifsud from her photographs of the Aeolian island.
“Fill your soul with dreams of salty sunshine. Taste the sweet summer figs. Float in a sea of the deepest blue. Walk the narrow cobbled streets under a mystical canopy of bougainvillea and lemon trees. Take the time to savour its colourful sensitivities.”
Starting out as a painter, Saz longed to see the rich colours she’d produce in her artworks on the clothes she wore.
This inspired her. In 2013 she started creating digital collages using her own photographs and paintings. Saz digitally printed her designs onto pure silk and was blown away by the richness of the colourful silks. Once the designs were printed, the silks were beautifully hand-crafted to create a versatile range of accessories and thus a brand was born.
