"Understated, confident elegance." This is the epitome of Amsale Aberra's signature style. Amsale is the perfect balance of exquisite simplicity and luxurious restraint and designer Aberra achieves this by creating a pure, clean silhouette with just one design accent as a stunning focal point with her gowns. This simplicity is not "simple" to achieve -- the lines have to be completely perfect as you carve away everything unnecessary to reveal the beauty of the shape and the fabric must be luxurious enough to carry the shape flawlessly. But the effect of understatement is unforgettable: the bride makes an impression of absolute elegance, poise, confidence and chic. She is impeccable, and we really see the woman that she is, radiating outwards from within.

Prices for Amsale start from $4500.
