Favorite Item: The Amsale Aberra Wedding Dress

A perfect way to spend the first wPicture1arm spring day, is strolling through an educational and inspiring museum.  Earlier today, I had the wonderful opportunity to browse the Black Fashion Designers exhibited at the Fashion Institute of Technology’s museum.  Right when I walked in, the second dress that really caught my eye so much my first favorite was ranked down to my second.  With knowing right away, “wow- this dress is the dress.  (as if it was my very own future wedding dress) Beautiful”.  A dress by designer, Amsale Aberra.  It was the simplicity mixed with allure.  It was the delicate sparkle that caught my eye.  If I had access to purchasing this dress, I would look for an excuse to get married—just to wear it.  The moment I saw the flowy bell shaped silhouette- I could see myself wearing it and spinning around in circles, to see this softly flowed fabric twirl.  The waistline cinched beautifully embracing a woman’s natural curves.  I love the balance of simple with elegance.

You could tell with each stitch in this dress was made with intention, love, and care. hand embroidered, silk fabric, shimmery champagne sequins and tiny bugle beads.  This dress is traditional but with modern flair.  Just looking at this dress makes you feel respect for yourself, imagining a reason you could wear this dress.  It certainly would not be an ordinary day.  It would be a very special day- wedding or maybe even an award show, like The Academy Awards!  To wear this dress, it would be a day you have highlighted and underlined in bold on the calendar.  A date you fight off all mundane appointments, you schedule things to prepare for this day, hair appointment, nails, waxing, a special breakfast.  All preparation for how you feel, in this one- very special dress.   This dress says you achieved something.

The museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology has beyond met my expectations, and highly encourage anyone who is interested in fashion to check it out.  I have to say, I feel more appreciation for fashion after viewing the museum.  Prior to visiting the museum my perception of fashion, was a part of me loved fashion- and then a part of me felt guilty for enjoying a self-indulgent hobby.  This exhibits, really reminded me how wonderful it is to show your vivid unique essence on the inside… on the outside with fashion.  Fashion is much more than fabric.
