Hands up if you dreamed of being a ballerina when you were a child? (or an adult!) Now you can, thanks to the launch of Sabina Motasem’s ‘En Pointe’ bridal collection.
The collection is available to view at the Islington-based studio with stunning ballerina imagery starring a real ballerina.
Sabina Ali, the founder, 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. My dresses emphasize my brides’ gracefulness throughout her special day.”
Each dress is handcrafted in London and made from the finest Italian silk crepes 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.
New pieces to note are:
♥ Anna – a halter neck dress with cut away sleeves and delicate lace trim;
♥ Maya – an elegant strapless dress with contrast satin and crepe silk bands;
♥ Geneviève – a cap sleeve fitted scooped neck dress with a soft A-line skirt;
♥ Loie – a cowl neck dress with a plunging back and a full draped skirt;
♥ Lilian – a V neck dress with cap sleeves and bias skirt;
♥ Emillienne – dress with a choice of art nouveau beaded neck detail in silver metal or rose gold, crystals or pearls
♥ Mistinguett – a French corded lace over-dress now with a choice of cap or love sleeves
♥ Lily Raindrop – another over-dress in sheer chiffon with a choice of raindrop-patterns in either crystals or pearls trickling down the dress.
There are also beautiful separates like:
♥ Evelyn – a French corded lace bodice;
♥ Evelyn Chiffon – a sheer version. Both slip on over many of the dresses, transforming them into completely new looks for day and night.
Prices start from £1400 for the ‘En Pointe’ Collection and are available throughout the UK and internationally. Shorter timescales are possible too.
An exciting new Luxe collection is being designed and will be launched in Autumn, just before the Christmas festivities. This will be a collection of highly covetable gowns adorned with intricate embellishments and made from the same signature silks, in simple shapes and innovative cut the dresses are famed for. Prices will start from £2500.
Sabina Ali says “I love the romance that comes from vintage Hollywood and the passion that comes from ballet. I’d love to sprinkle a bit of that magic glamour and sophistication into everything I do,” she says.
