One of my favourite collections from Joburg Fashion Week is by designer Abigail Betz. Simple lines, wearable designs, rich wintry fabrics and a touch of regal elegance. Her graceful and classic pieces are beautifully crafted and deserve a place on the international fashion front.
The range was inspired by 50's style dresses with clinched waistlines and full skirts. Very polished and feminine. Longer-length pencil skirts and coat-style dresses were also shown. Fur and fascinators completed the look.
Printed dresses with full skirts added some floral flair to the collection.
These voluminous gowns are extraordinary. I like that it has been designed to suit any shape and not just the runway model. Abigail proves that minimalism and innovative design can outdo the fussy and fully embellished evening gowns that we usually see.
Timeless and delicate couture wedding gowns rounded off a sensational show.
