Amsale Wedding Gowns

Born in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia to Aberra Moltot, Ethiopia’s vice-minister for National Community Development and Tsadale Assamnew, a housewife, Aberra moved to Poultney, Vermont to study commercial art at Green Mountain College when she was 19. Political upheaval in her native Ethiopia forced Amsale to stay in the United States and support herself through her undergraduate years. As financial resources were limited, Amsale began to design and sew her own clothing. For the first time Amsale considered the possibility of a career in fashion design. Aberra says that she herself never expected to be a fashion designer.

On the website Huffington Post, Aberra has an Ask Amsale blog, 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. This is solidified by the space on her main website where real brides can submit photos of themselves on their wedding day in one of her creations.

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.

After completing her studies at FIT, Aberra went to work as a design assistant for HarvĂ© Benard. After she worked there for two years she began her own bridal gown company. Her approach was to create stunning, simple gowns that would fit the modern woman. Her design philosophy is to take a “forever” modern approach to sophisticated design. Her designs are seen as modern but still keep in mind traditional designs, such as her use of “illusion” necklines.
