Hello Friends. I recently had a question about one of Bob’s designs that I thought I would share in case some of you were wondering the same thing. Monica from New Jersey recently purchased her first Bob Mackie Wearable Art silhouette. She ordered Bob’s Jeweled collar Ikat Print Split Neck Caftan. She loves the dress, and told me that she chose it because of the gorgeous colors and how they create the beautiful design. Her question was what is Ikat? Great question. We don’t all know what that means and it’s a defining feature of this particular caftan. Ikat refers...
