I think it was Oliver Wendell Holmes who said, “I would give my life for the simplicity on the other side of complexity.” In the bridal gown world, couture designer Amsale Aberra has exquisitely achieved just that with her Amsale Fall 2013 collection. Her gowns feel like sculptures in the way they embrace thoughtfully simple lines and carve away any unnecessary design details.
The Plaza gown showcases Amsale’s design aesthetic of understated, but confident elegance. The illusion sweetheart neckline with beaded bodice pairs perfectly with the clean lines of the pleated skirt.
We couldn’t stop staring at the back of this Mercer fit to flare gown. Amsale has a way of taking simple and classic shapes and making them mesmerizing with a single focal point. Such is the case with this asymmetrical sash tied in an origami-like bow at the back.
The Greenwich gown pairs a chic corseted bodice with a pleated tulip skirt. We are almost certain any woman will radiate elegance and a confident poise in this simple but breathtaking silhouette.
We are grateful that the designer who started out designing dresses one at a time out of her New York loft now offers another collection of luxurious designs for the modern bride.
