Antik Batik is one of my all-time favourite fashion brands! If you put on a dress by Antik Batik, you just know you're gonna feel good and... you won't (easily) find anyone in the same outfit!
Antik Batik was founded in 1992 by italian born designer Gabriella Cortese and is still going strong. Her headquarters are in Paris, but many of the garments are hand made in India. She travels around the world for inspiration and to look for new techniques: in Bali she discovered 'batik' and in India embroidery and 'bandhani' (an artisanal dyeing process).
Cortese: “I want to create the fashion of a voyager who plunges into the past and rediscovers treasures in an old trunk, pieces that evoke childhood memories and the parties of the Roaring Twenties.”
Owning several Antik Batik pieces... I can say it always feels like a party whenever I wear them!
