In fashion the past is omnipresent. While some decades, like the 60s and 70s, will eternally inspire a sense of emancipation, others offer a sense of rebellion. Take, for example, the power of the 80s mixed with the lightness of turn-of-the-century prairie dresses. A sense of optimism is imbued in the puritanical details of a prairie dress but combined with the Sloane Ranger take on a frill collar on a full-length summer dress, it’s a refreshing interpretation. Perhaps it’s this idea of quiet rebellion through clothing that appeals to designer Batsheva Hay. Known for her ankle-length dresses inspired by Orthodox Judaism, the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund finalist is turning heads for her signature look, redefining what sexy dressing means in 2018. We take a look at some of the prairie dress influences on trend now. Dan Ahwa
