Batsheva Dresses

About

BATSHEVA is a New York-based ready-to-wear brand for women and girls. Founded in 2016 by Batsheva Hay, BATSHEVA plays with American styles of feminine dress – from Victorian to Pioneer; from Housewife to Hippie – by taking elements symbolic of restraint and repression (high collars, voluminous sleeves and skirts) and giving them a modern inflection. By retooling historical looks, BATSHEVA explores how to extract the strong and beautiful aspects of those styles while rejecting antiquated notions of womanhood.
