Designer and batik artist: Kathy Robinson Batik

If you travel down Germantown Avenue’s cobbled street to the Mt. Airy Section of Philadelphia you’ll come upon a tiny shop called called Artista Gallery. There you will find the whimsical, wispy and wonderful clothing of designer and batik artist, Katy Robinson. Batik is a process of dying fabric and creating designs using wax to block out patterns on the fabric. I did not fully appreciate her work until I actually tried on some of it. The pieces are unique, some are show stoppers, and all definitely meant to be worn with black to show off her work.
