Amsale Couture

Starting at $6,000

For designer Amsale Aberra, it all started with a single wedding dress: her own. Seeking a more modern silhouette for her 1985 nuptials, Amsale found her options limited. She eschewed the overly ornate—on-trend in that era—and crafted her own pared-down design, elegant in its simplicity and quiet in its impact, featuring a distinct style that was modern and personal at once. Three decades later, her refined and modern aesthetic endures in a variety of collections - and Amsale herself is widely credited as the inventor of the modern wedding dress. Amsale’s legacy is alive in each and every piece, exuding modern femininity, unstated glamour and attention to detail. The house’s ethos honors Amsale’s lifelong pursuit of enduring style that evokes feeling and connection, an indelible legacy that is felt in every design. Each design is delicately handcrafted using couture dressmaking techniques in AMSALE’s New York City atelier.
