Fashion Pays Homage

Amsale Spring 2019 Bridal Fashion week show continues after death of iconic founder and designer

Last month, we reported on the loss of a legend in the bridal industry when Amsale Aberra died from cancer. The 64-year-old designer was a major player in the evolution of bridal fashion and wanted to ensure that not matter what happened to her, her Spring 2019 bridal collection would show as planned on April 13.

The collection displayed the signature classic style the designer displayed year after year. Designs included clean lines, lace appliqués, sheer illusion sleeves and little, but tasteful bling accents, such as beaded necklines, belts and bodices. Silk seemed to be a favorite for the designer this year, as most of the designs were in the fabric, in a number of white and off-white hues. 

A couple of our favorites included the “Stella,” a silk faille ballgown with bow detailing, cross pleated straps and wrap over skirt; the “Nola,” a crepe bodice ballgown with tulle layered skirt and hand appliqued horsehair lace; the “Charlie,” a silk faille and lace peplum bodice gown with slim lace underlay and tulle skirt; and the “Ailey,” a silk faille pleated skirt ball gown with sheer illusion sleeves and back.

See each style in the collection below and let us know your favorites in the comments.
