Day one of 2014 Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Joburg saw fashion designers Abigail Betz, Irmgard Mkhabela, Marianne Fassler, Stefania Morland, and Tsotetsi Kl showcase their autumn/ winter 2014 collections.

 

The Abigail Betz brand is well known for its classic luxurious designs, particularly in the wedding industry.

 

An Abigail Betz piece, regardless of trend or season, will always be known for its sheer romance, exclusivity, exquisite use of cloth and meticulous attention to detail, specialized hand dye work, perfect fit and timeless luxury.

 

The Abigail Betz autumn/ winter 2014 collection has been partially inspired by the traditional Japanese wedding kimono, which comprises of some 14 or more different layers, which each have various meanings. This is particularly evident in the bridal line, and especially in “The Ultimate Abigail Betz wedding dress,” which comprises of 12 layers of silk, wrapping and folding softly and luxuriously around the female form. This concept of layering flows throughout the bridal line and each layer is accentuated with dye work and bead work. This idea of layering and versatility can also be seen in the winter coats for the season, but here they meet with a very retro feel, making the look for 2014 quite unique.

 

Here are some highlights from Abigail Betz’s Thursday show.
