The opportunity to be in close proximity with beautiful wedding gowns is the ideal way to have an enjoyable time. We were so thrilled when we managed to arrange a meeting with London fashion designer Sabina Motasem at the Bridal Week previews. We were in heaven!
Sabina Motasem has been creating distinctive bridal gowns from her studio in fashionable Dalston for more than a decade. The wedding dresses she designs have modern, clean lines that are complemented by fascinating textures and intricate particulars. She describes them in terms of “Simple and elegant but with something extra or unexpected, like a unique neckline or fabric.”
The newest collection, Aurora, is a collection that takes inspiration from The Roman goddess of dawn and holds an important significance for the designer: Each gown is named in honor of a woman who has inspired her, whether it’s from her personal life or the stars of screen and stage from the past times like the dress ‘Margot for example, is an allusion to the famous ballerina Margot Fonteyn.
When she shared some of the highlights from the collection, it was evident that this was a versatile collection that brides could have fun with and create their own. One of the main trends is layering as well as separating, as the models had a blast mixing various pieces.
Wedding brands are increasingly offering separates; however, we are amazed by how these styles easily blend making a, elegant and sophisticated mix-and-match look. As the Sabina Motasem bride, your toughest decision to make is the right outfit!
If we asked her for the inspiration for her work, she explained to us that many of her ideas stem from nature. For example, a stunning pearl-encrusted dress that echoes soft spring raindrops. Another is made with meticulously stitched forget-me-not flowers and a color palette that evokes the image of golden oceans.
The significance of the event determines her dress choices as fashion-related elements. These are dresses that reflect the joy and fun of the wedding day. Dresses meant to be worn and enjoyed. They’ll feel right at home peacefully along an aisle of a church in the morning or dancing naked at midnight with their loved one.
