If there was a Queen of the bridal world, Amsale Aberra would be it! We sat down with the designer behind the brand and got the scoop on her latest collection, Nouvelle Amsale. Trust us, Amsale knows it all when it comes to bridesmaids dresses so read on for all her dress inspiration, styling tips, and favorite styles! Straight from the Queen herself.
Inspiration for the Nouvelle Amsale bridesmaid collection?
The inspiration behind the Nouvelle Bridesmaid collection is an effortless aesthetic that’s playful and easy to wear.
When did you decide you wanted to do the collection?
I decided I wanted to do the collection because I wanted to give brides more options that were completely different from Amsale bridesmaids. I visualized girls getting married out doors at a vineyard or beachside who wanted something modern and relaxed, and this collection really speaks to that bride.
What kind of bride is the Nouvelle Amsale bride?
The Nouvelle Amsale bride is modern with a young spirit and fashion forward in style.
What is your favorite style from the collection?
Sometimes I am just like a bride, so I am always free to change my mind. I love each dress for different reasons. The trapeze styles optimize the forever-modern girl, where the ruffle styles speak to the softer more romantic girl. It’s impossible to choose!
Tips for styling Nouvelle Amsale dresses?
My personal taste would be to keep the styling minimal. Try something like a delicate single strand necklace or thin stackable rings to complete the look.
Advice for brides while shopping for bridesmaid dresses?
The overall style of dresses a bride chooses for her bridesmaids should reflect the vision of the wedding. As you keep style in mind, also make sure your girls feel comfortable. You want to make sure they’re ready to dance the night away happy without sacrificing style.
Best Beach Read.
I like to grab everything from magazines to newspapers to keep current, but I don’t let it take away from my relaxation time.
Favorite Summer Cocktail.
I like something fresh with a lot of crushed ice a twist of citrus and a splash of Prosecco for that perfect summer cocktail.
Song you want to drive with your windows down to?
This may be a little biased, but my daughter Rachel Brown has a new song, “You Got Me,” that just says summer. I hope you love it just as much as I do. smarturl.it/TheBandEP
