What do you get when you cross vintage Laura Ashley and Gunne Sax dresses with the fashion-forward sensibilities of a former lawyer? A newly minted label of unashamedly quirky and feminine frocks, that's what.
Batsheva Hay has gone from the courtroom to the CFDA. In just two years, Hay went from creating dresses for herself and her daughter as a hobby, to one of ten emerging talents singled out by the prestigious Vogue/CFDA Fashion Fund.
Based in New York, the up-and-coming label takes its inspiration from all styles of traditional feminine dress - from housewife to hippie, Victorian to vixen, and prairie to pilgrim.
"By retooling historical looks, Batsheva explores how to extract the strong and beautiful aspects of those styles while rejecting antiquated notions of womanhood," Hay writes on her website.
Thus far, the fledgling brand has already found celebrity fans in Natalie Portman, Busy Philipps, and Nina Dobrev.
From boho to bold, the Batsheva Instagram is a smorgasbord of flowing dress inspo for women of all tastes. Not sure which aesthetic you identify with? Us neither. We'll take one of each please.
