I am beyond thrilled today to be sharing the collection from award winning bridal designer Sabina Motasem. Having recently been recognised with the ‘Highly Commended’ award for Best Bridal Designer for London and the South East at the Regional Wedding Industry Awards 2016, Sabina is set to take 2016 by storm.
Her iconic wedding dress designs are chic, stylish and flattering. Not to mention completely versatile and customisable; just check out the slip-style looks below. The 2016 ‘En Pointe’ collection is simply exquisite. Inspired by ballet, the gowns are elegant yet comfortable to wear and certainly to dance in. I especially love the clean lines and how accessory choice can totally transform the whole bridal look too.
Brides be quick to order your gown as Sabina Motasem is running a special Christmas discount of 10% off every dress purchase made in November and December. Ekkk.
Let’s find out more about this brilliant collection and the inspiration behind the collection from the designer herself…
Anna – a halter neck dress with cut away sleeves and delicate lace trim.
Award winning bridalwear label, Sabina Motasem, celebrates design inspiration taken from the world of ballet with their ‘En Pointe’ collection. The collection is available to view at the Islington-based studio and selected pieces are available at one of their stockists. The ballerina imagery stars a real ballerina, Kate Byrne who dances with the Royal Opera House and the National Ballet all around the world.
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, as if floating weightlessly on air throughout her special day with her partner.”
Bridal ‘Slip-style’ Dressing
Designer and founder, Sabina Ali, says, “The Elsa is one of our most popular dresses. I use a high quality silk, which drapes beautifully and moves with the body. It’s so flattering for all figures.”
Sabina makes ‘slip-style’ dressing perfect for bridal, by creating different looks with separates, overlays and accessories. The bride can go from demure for the ceremony to uber-sexy for the evening.
Style Elsa with a lace overlay dress called Mistinguett, or perhaps with a Lily dress made from silk georgette to create different looks for day and night. For a sleeker silhouette, style with an Art Nouveau beaded belt or a matching satin sash in various lengths.
Sabina says, “Elsa is ultra-feminine, sexy, versatile, easy to wear and looks fabulous worn on its own or accessorised to create different looks from Hollywood to vintage to boho.”

Each dress is created from the finest Italian silks, has a superior cut and drape, is luxurious yet lightweight and flowing. The dresses are timeless, flattering and wearable, combining glamour and sophistication with elegantly modern lines for a luxuriously understated look.
Lilian – a V neck dress with cap sleeves and bias skirt.
Sabina Ali says “I love the romance that comes from vintage Hollywood and the passion that comes from ballet. I love to sprinkle a bit of that magic glamour and sophistication into everything I do.”

Loie – a cowl neck dress with a plunging back and a full draped skirt.
