Amsale Aberra has carved a distinct niche in the world of bridal couture with her clean, sophisticated designs which embody timeless elegance, "I think the effect of understatement is unforgettable..." This unique, "forever modern" aesthetic offers a chic alternative to the trends of the moment perfect for the bride seeking a modern silhouette infused with fresh femininity!
Amsale Aberra’s career as a couture bridal and eveningwear designer began in a very personal way, when she couldn’t find a simple, refined gown to wear on her wedding day in 1985. “Everything was so overdone and overly adorned,” she recollects. Inspired to create elegant and understated dresses for women like her, Amsale began custom-making wedding gowns in her New York City loft that fused pure, archetypal silhouettes with couture craftsmanship and sumptuous textiles. Today, the Ethiopian-born Amsale is a leading designer in the world of luxury bridal gowns, and her design signatures are instantly recognizable. Crafted in New York City, where Amsale is committed to supporting high-end bridal manufacturing, the Amsale name (pronounced Ahm-sah’-leh) has become synonymous with exquisite simplicity and luxurious restraint. Says Amsale, “I want a bride to be thrilled with her wedding-day look for years to come, because her dress has a timeless beauty that reflects her true essence.”
The Amsale bridal collection ranges in price from $4,000 to $10,000.
