Betty Eldad is a fashion designer, former model and ballet dancer. Born in Israel to a large family of Moroccan, Libyan and Italian origins, her intercultural roots have played a large role in her featured designs. As a “Shenkar” fashion school and “Bazalel Academy of Art and Design” of Jerusalem student, Betty's life as an artist and classical ballet dancer influenced her design career by it's forms of elegance, length and movements as they translate naturally into her body of work. Betty's life in dance and design has perjured a deep passion for providing women with opportunities through self expression and creativity.
Launching Bet-ka in 2008, Betty Eldad made her mark in contemporary fashion through her design distinction and innovation. Debuting with a conservative blend of original trends, each collection utilizes a variety of fine Italian and virgin fleece wools, cashmere blends and signature French Jacquards. Catered to clients of sophistication and elegance, the Bet-ka brand creates a rich and colorful ready to wear collection each season.
Bet-ka's design philosophy focuses on the varying aspects of shape and form and draws its inspiration from disciplines found in fine arts, sculpture, gothic and contemporary architecture and design. Modern dance and classical ballet have remained a highly recognizable part of Bet-ka's visual identity.
My Autumn Winter 1516 inspiration raised from a piece of article that fell into my hands on the primitive cinema and live performances during the Edwardian Era and the influential performer and male impersonator and comedian Little Tich, who was a 4 foot 6 inch tall English comedian and dancer during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Exploring the Edwardian era, zooming into the life of working class woman I found an absolutely worth looking into issues like poverty among women, domestic female servants, woman's mobility and birth control and a great passion for the era's visual poverty has came up. All this led me looking into the modification in women's dress during the Edwardian era, which was the last time women wore corsets in everyday life. I explored typical garment patterns of working woman, poor children, dolls, convicts, the use of petticoats, quilted fabrics and under structures. AW1516 collection contains tailored and semi tailored garments, luxury day wear and evening.Home
