Abigail Betz launched her brand in 1997 in Cape Town. Shortly after, her designs filled Young Designer Emporium stores nationally. In 2008 she opened an Abigail Betz signature store in the Mall of Rosebank, Johannesburg. Abigail’s clientele stretches across South Africa, Europe, and the East. Her designs are romantic and gorgeously feminine. Many are empire dresses and voluminous skirts made of silk, lace, or tulle with crouches or embellishments. Abigail won the Best Couture Collection award and was featured in the 2011 Joburg Fashion Week. Her latest collections are pictured above, along with a picture with our very own DFS Ambassador, Jazna Zellerhof.
