How many of us had dreams as little girls of being a) beautiful princess brides and b) ballerinas? Ahhh… I sense you smiling just a little there… even I wanted to be in Swan Lake when I was young enough to look cute in ballet shoes!
Some things don’t change: brides will always look amazing; ballerinas will always have a timeless grace which can take a girl’s breath away. Combining the two is genius… and Sabina Motasem‘s latest collection of wedding dresses does just that. Beautifully.
The new collection brings movement and flow to designer bridalwear, showcasing must-have pieces for any bride looking for luxurious understated elegance.
Sabina Motasem has just launched the new ‘En Pointe’ bridalwear collection with styling and design inspiration taken from the world of ballet. The collection is available to view at the Islington-based studio with stunning ballerina imagery starring a real ballerina, Kate Byrne who dances with the Royal Opera House and the National Ballet all around the world.
Sabina Ali, the founder of Sabina Motasem, says, “I have taken inspiration from ballet for my latest collection of dresses. A ballerina, just like a bride, encapsulates elegance, grace and beauty through refined movement and flow. The dresses emphasize my brides’ gracefulness, as if floating weightlessly on air throughout her special day with the special man in her life.”
Each dress is handcrafted in London and made from the finest Italian silk crepes, chiffons and satins and French lace to achieve the highest quality finish. The dresses are timeless, flattering and wearable. The collection combines glamour and sophistication with elegantly modern lines to create a luxuriously understated look.
