Ethiopian-born American bridal designer Amsale Aberra’s career as a couture bridal gown designer began in a very personal way. In 1985, while planning her wedding, Aberra scoured the stores to find a simple, refined wedding dress. She found little in the way of clean, sophisticated gowns and discovered an untapped niche in the bridal market. Aberra placed an advertisement for custom-made gowns and started her business out of her New York City loft apartment.

Today, Aberra is a leading designer in the world of luxury bridal gowns, and her design signatures are instantly recognizable. Her approach is to create stunning, simple gowns that fit the modern woman. Her design philosophy is to take a “forever” modern approach to sophisticated design. Her designs are seen as modern while still keeping in mind traditional designs, such as her use of “illusion” necklines.

Amsale wedding gowns have been featured in several television shows and movies including Grey’s Anatomy, The Oprah Winfrey Show, The View, 27 Dresses, American Wedding, When in Rome, and The Hangover.  In June 2011, WE television aired Amsale Girls, a reality show taking viewers behind the scenes of Amsale’s Madison Avenue flagship salon—featuring the highly skilled bridal consultants who work to help each unique bride find her perfect dress. Celebrity clients include Halle Berry, Julia Roberts, Salma Hayek, Heather Graham, Lisa Kudrow, Katherine Heigl, and Heidi Klum.

Aberra also has a regular column, “Ask Amsale,” on The Huffington Post website where brides and brides-to-be can post questions for her or express their love of her gowns. Aberra expresses her love of finding the perfect gown for any bride and asks real brides to submit photos of themselves wearing her creations on their wedding days to her website.

Designer Spotlight: Amsale

Ethiopian-born American designer, Amsale Aberra was born in 1954 and is known for her couture wedding gowns. Her entre into bridal fashion began in 1985 with her own wedding: when she couldn’t find a simple, yet refined gown to wear herself. So the FIT graduate began making custom bridal gowns in her NYC loft. According to her website, the gowns “fused pure, archetypal silhouettes with couture craftsmanship and sumptuous textiles.”

Today Amsale is one of the most recognizable names in the bridal business, and her gowns are still crafted and displayed in New York City. While you can purchase her gowns at Bergdorf Goodman, Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus, and other fine bridal boutiques across the nation, the Amsale flagship store makes its home on Madison Avenue. Her style, easily recognized, is marked by both “exquisite simplicity and luxurious restraint.”

Beyond her namesake brand, Amsale founded the Amsale Group with Neil Brown. The group is comprised of three distinct, yet complementary luxury bridal collections: Amsale, Christos, and Kenneth Pool. The group also includes the Amsale Bridesmaid Collection. Each of these impeccable collections can be found at the flagship store on Madison Avenue and other fine boutique retailers—including Nitsa’s Bridal—across this country and over 20 other countries.

Amsale gowns have been worn by numerous celebrities, including Halle Berry, Selma Hayak, and Julie Roberts, just to name a few. Celebrities that married in Amsale include Sara Rue, Lisa Loeb, and Bethany Frankel, among others. In 2011, WE TV did a reality series called “Amsale Girls” offering a behind-the-scenes peek at the Amsale boutique. The Amsale mission: “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,” Amsale says.

Trunk Show: Amsale

“Every designer has their signature—a style that’s distinctly and recognizably their own. Mine is ‘understated, confident elegance.’ What does that mean? I think it’s hitting the perfect balance of exquisite simplicity and luxurious restraint.” – Amsale Aberra

Come see the elegant designs of NYC wedding dress designer Amsale (pronounced Ahm-sah’-leh), at our Winston-Salem location, 107 South Stratford Rd., Friday, July 5th through Saturday, July 13. Amsale designs are known for their luxurious fabrics, impeccable craftsmanship, and understated elegance. The designer purposely creates
designs that highlight the bride, not hide her under an overpowering dress. Clean lines and stunning silhouettes let the woman inside the dress shine through.

Amsale Aberra has been designing wedding dresses for over 25 years. She is co-founder of the Amsale Group, which is made up of three distinct, luxury bridal collections: Amsale, Christos, and Kenneth Pool. Her designs are found in superior bridal boutiques around the world and have been worn by stars including Halle Berry, Julia Roberts, and Salma Hayek.

Celebrate Pantone’s Color of the Year with Amsale!

We’ve been giddy with excitement over the incredible 2013 color of the year, emerald green! Amsale is a popular line at Nitsa’s and we love what they’ve done with it!

Amsale introduced the brand new color Emerald in October 2012, and the following January, Pantone announced that it is their color of the year!

According to Pantone, “Balanced yet sophisticated, Emerald enlivens all colors in the spectrum and will continue to make a statement beyond spring and summer into fall and winter.”

Emerald would pair well with mid-tone brights (Peacock and Cobalt) as well as deeper jewel tones (Amethyst, Ink, Mallard, Pacific, Eggplant, Navy, and French Blue).

To see the full line of colors from Amsale, visit the bridal salon at Nitsa’s in Winston-Salem or Charlotte!
