Amsale Aberra - Wedding Gowns Forever Modern

Modern and sophisticated, Amsale Aberra’s creations are utterly fantastic. Understated and truly elegant, her designs are perfect for the bride who is fashionable, chic, and urban. What sets her gowns apart from the rest is the minimal ornamentation, highlighting the clean, pure silhouettes.

Her foray into the wedding world is similar to that of many designers. In 1985, this Ethiopian born designer searched for the perfect dress for her own wedding. She wanted something simple, modern, and not beaded or gaudy. Her inability to find what she envisioned was the origin of her own wedding gown design company. Like her gowns, her

design philosophy is simple: construct timeless gowns that are modern. We love her incredible ability to merge the traditional with the contemporary.

Her innovative twists to the traditional wedding gown are wonderfully well-appointed. Her gowns combine many fine details such as lace, silk flowers, and delicate, simple bead-work that all contribute to a stylish yet understated design. They posses fluidity, but do not sacrifice style for comfort. She has modern updates of the traditional bustle and uses color accents such as blue and gray. Her famous “blue-sash” gown is now recognized as a modern classic. We are especially fond of her crumb catcher designs, and we will forever have a place in our hearts for her ubiquitous wedding gown with pockets. Seriously, how fabulous and fun is that? You can slip a lip gloss (clear of course, don’t want to risk staining) into your pocket!

Amsale has several different wedding gown lines ranging from couture designs to more simple silhouettes, as well as a recently launched evening collection. But, we are totally smitten with the newest addition to her growing line–”The Little White Dress.” This line of cocktail length gowns are simple yet stunning and totally fun. So perfect for brides who wish to slip into something a bit more sexy and comfortable for the reception or the after-party. The idea of two gowns is becoming quite common and we are thrilled thatAmsale has designs with this in mind.

Amsale defines her vision as “forever modern”….how apropos.

Lots to see…..
