Amsale Aberra, the Ethiopian born fashion designer behind the bridal line named after herself, is as beautiful as her gowns. She is a couture bridal wear and evening wear designer meaning her gowns can be seen everywhere from on royalty around the world to on the red carpet at the Country Music Awards. She is as versatile as her creations but she has a few guiding principles that she has always stuck to and will always set her designs apart from the rest.

Perhaps the best way to start telling Aberra’s story is to begin where she did: in New York. As is the case with many enlightened visionaries Aberra was more than disappointed by the choices available to her for her own wedding gown. She was looking for something simple, timeless and elegant which won’t be a surprise to any bride who has been wowed by an Amsale gown. She found that most of the gowns she saw were over adorned or overwrought. She knew the best fashionistas would not let themselves be worn by the gown and so she turned her tiny New York City loft into an atelier and began to churn out the elegant dresses that she has since become known for. Aberra knew then the importance of having a bride that would love her wedding dress for years to come and since then she has fused couture craftsmanship with refined archetypal silhouettes to create a bridal line that is the envy of every new york city bride and beyond. Together with Neil Brown, Aberra has taken those bridal gowns one step further by founding the Amsale group. After having worked on wedding gowns for many years she found that her tastes were not exactly changing as much as she was itching to experiment. In order to make those dreams a reality, three independent and exclusive bridal lines were launched under the heading of the Amsale group that are as different from each other as they are similar in their exceptional quality. While many brides are familiar with Christos and Kenneth Pool they might not know that both of these luxurious bridal lines can also boast of having the much sought after Aberra touch. This group also includes a bridesmaids collection which has the unique feature of allowing the bride or bridesmaid to select the fabric or texture of a gown to create one of a kind luxury bridesmaids dresses.

With so many options and such a rich history it’s hard to find a reason to leave the Amsale group out of your wedding planning!
