Batik

Batik to be used in haute couture demanded a special reinforcing procedure while using it for tailleurs, gowns, hats, shoes, and purses. In Oskoo’s workshops the fabric design was possible only during limited period of the year with mild temperature in order to keep the wax liquid. Here are some images of his collection of Batik. Keyvan’s most important innovation was his achievement to stamp on thick woolen crepe for the first time a Batik fabric to be used for an over coat. He used the same colour and pattern silk Batik for the lining and the dress as an ensemble shown here worn in Paris during a lunch at Elysees Palace. The magnificent Batik gown worn during a soiree at Kennedy Centre Opera in Washington DC now kept in Galliera museum in Paris should be mentioned.
