I just recently become obsessed with his Delphos dresses. The way those pleats move along the body is so fantastic. I love that you can't even see the side seams, they're perfectly hidden. I read somewhere though that they pleats were done by hand, which is why they're irregular, as far as how they're sustained, I can't even imagine.

Much more impressive than Issey's stuff, since these were all done in silk as opposed to synthetics which hold pleats much easier.

And of course, his stenciled velvet pieces were gorgeous.

^It's not that synthetics hold pleats better; rather it's that the pleats become permanent once you heat set the fabric. You can heat set pleats into silk as well, but once you wash it, the pleats will disappear
