Sabina Motasem Bride specialises in luxuriously understated, elegantly modern dresses with the glamour and sophistication of old and new Hollywood, geometry and simplicity combined in simple shapes, the finest silks and a superior cut.
The collection takes inspiration from the Edwardian, Art Nouveau and Art Deco eras fused with a modern edge and celebrates the style and beauty of an iconic woman from these eras. Each dress has optional designer details for brides to choose from; whether it’s a choice of beading designs, different sleeves, colours, accessories and from “all over lace” to a touch of lace – there is a style to suit everyone. There is also a range of day to evening dresses and tailored jackets soon too.
Wedding dresses are priced from £1100, are made exclusively in the UK.

Sabina Ali, the founder of Sabina Motasem, studied knitwear at university before working on fashion’s high street in design and production and in media/marketing as a graphic designer before designing cocktail dresses. In 2005 she designed a friend a simple and elegant wedding dress as a gift. Several gifts later, orders quickly followed and the idea for Sabina Motasem was born.
In the summer of 2006, Sabina won an award on the New Entrepreneur Scholarship to start a fashion label and was selected to showcase her collection at Zandra Rhodes’ Fashion and Textile Museum. The following year saw the Aurora and Alaya dresses on vampire like models gracing the black carpet at the first Twilight film premiere as Robert Pattison made his entrance in London's Leicester Square.
When Will married Kate, now the Josephine dress became an instant bestseller when brides were looking for a Pippa Middleton inspired wedding dress. Sabina Motasem is a brand regularly featured in bridal magazines and blogs and fast becoming the designer of choice for stylish women.
