Batoo! Barbara Turk - stylist and fashion designer
Stylist, clothing and fashion designer Barbara Turk.

Do you wanna know who batoo is? //

Batoo is about you and a bit more about me, Barbara Turk. I work as a fashion designer and stylist in various projects and production fields - from areas - advertising, commercials, music videos, many TV ads, various television stations and shows. I'm focused on visual creativity and specialised in professional styling and fashion design.

As an official fashion stylist, I worked for the largest Southern European music network MTV Adria, one of the largest commercial TV production houses TV3 Viasat and currently I work with the new and fresh media station Planet TV/Siol.

In addition to my stylist work, I passionately devote myself to fashion design. My creations are intriguing with an eloquent attitude and strong emotional power, always rich in colour and details. My work is a clear expression of my style, which is never influenced by traditional boundaries. I love to explore various aspects and areas of everyday life, and balance them into dynamic, avant-garde, and yet accessible clothing collages with a strong personal style.

So, that is a brief introduction about me. If you want to know more, you can easily get in touch with me through the contact form or via email.

Awards

2006 - Best Dress for Miss Slovenia In 2006 my creation of a white lace dress was chosen for Miss Slovenia Iris Mulej, for her appearance at the Miss World gala event in Poland. I won 1st prize at the Best Dress competition, organised by ONA magazine.
The white handmade lace dress was made without any stiches by using a technique called air lace, which is done on special paper. I used various laces, from handmade Idrian lace, to knotted lace, machine made lace, and knitted lace, which - some of them were also more than 30 years old - and connected them together with air lace. The whole procedure is very slow and complex, beacuse you need to remove the paper off the lace in the water. It took me three months to finish the gown.
2004 - Prešeren award for textile installation Lorem ipsum In 2004 I received a Prešeren award for textile a instalattion entitled "The Birth of Textile". This was a group student project prepared for the City Museum in Ljubljana, Slovenia.
Each student made one part of the installation using a special textile technique. My contribution was made of felted wool, which is a handmade technique were wool fibres transform into a tough and durable material, due to the use of moisture, heat and pressure.
