John Bates is an English fashion designer who, working as Jean Varon, was part of the boutique scene that blossomed in London in the 1960s. 

Bates' work as Jean Varon in the 1960s was particularly modernistic. He designed dresses with bare midriffs, sheer panels, and very short hemlines, and as early as 1962 was designing high-fashion plastic garments.

In 1965 Bates designed memorable outfits for Diana Rigg to wear for her role as Emma Peel in The Avengers

All measurements are taken when the fabric is not stretched, though we will also give the extra inches when it is stretched (for example, if a range of measurements is listed, it is because the fabric may stretch to encompass multiple sizes).
