In 1974, a 26-year-old Diane von Furstenberg created the iconic wrap dress. It's a dress made of often colourful and elaborately patterned jersey or viscose lycra material (material with a stretch) that wraps around the body, crosses at the chest and cinches at the waist.
Due to popular demand, the wrap dress is back! The KARA wrapdress was named after the founder of TWM, Carina Nel. She just loves a wrap dress but loves animal print even more! The KARA wrapdress is bold and daring with a dramatic animal print design in shades of black, grey and beige. It hasa front closure formed by wrapping one side across the other, and knotting the attached ties that wrap around the back at the waist. This forms a V-shaped neckline and hugs the wearer's curves. The tie waist cinches on the slimmest portion of the torso, giving an ultra-slimming effect for all body types. Not only is the KARA wrap dress the most slimming dress style, but it's also perfect for any age and can be worn anywhere, anytime.
The KARA wrap dress is multi-functional…..wear with flats, wear with heels, wear over jeans/pants, wear layered underneath a cardigan or wear with boots along with tights. A wrap dress works well with just about any style you prefer and for any occasion you may find yourself.
Furthermore, what makes the KARA wrap dress so unique is the style and length options available: choose your neckline with double needle top stitch, a straight sleeve or with a cuff (black leatherette), the sleeve length, waistline length as well as dress length……above the knee or up to your ankles, to make sure it fits your body proportions well. KARA also comes with a black buckle to tie your dress in various ways. The skirt of the KARA wrap dress is cut on an A-line, simply skimming over your curves to create a seamless silhouette.

Please note: As the KARA wrap dress is made of viscose lycra- a stretch fabric- DO NOT hang the dress on a hanger by the shoulders but rather fold it in half over the hanger or fold up when stored. When being washed, please dry flat.
