Designer Spotlight: Amsale 2023

Designer Amsale Aberra was (and is) one of the most established bridal designers in the industry, and we’re so proud to highlight these exquisite gowns today! Amsale’s collections have showcased the brand’s incredible work of their late founder, who was the first black female member of the Council of Fashion Designers and credited as the “inventor of the modern wedding dress.” 


All it took was one wedding dress for Amsale Aberra: her own. Ethiopian native Amsale found her options limited when looking for a more modern silhouette for her 1985 wedding. Her minimalist design was both elegant and quiet, with a distinct style that was contemporary and personal at once. The Amsale Group is a black-owned business that’s headquartered in NYC and is one of the leading luxury bridal houses in the world. Their collections include Nouvelle Amsale, Amsale, Little White Dress and Evening, and Amsale Bridesmaids. 




The Spring 2023 AMSALE collection was created to celebrate the incredible rarity of each and every bride. This season's gowns feature nighttime flowers, making brides think of those super special once-in-a-lifetime moments, while tailored pieces enhance the bride's look throughout the evening, adding such gorgeous structure to the look. In this collection, you will find luscious blooms, crystal appliques with dazzling patterns, and inspiration from old New York underground jazz clubs and classic songstresses like Billie Holiday.
