What we do

Timeless, understated ‘go anywhere, everywhere’ dresses

Sabina Ali is the force behind London-based luxury label, Sabina Motasem Bride. All the dresses have understated, timeless glamour, trademark silky fabrics, fluid shapes and exquisite cutting. Styles are ones brides, bridesmaids, guests and mother of the brides want to wear again.

Not only are the dresses just right for a glamorous wedding, after the honeymoon they are versatile enough for a chic party and for a business meeting.

The exclusive collections are kept small to ensure quality is always kept at a premium and prices affordable. Sabina Motasem Bride has become the perfect choice for stylish brides.

Prices start from £550 for wedding dresses, £175 for cocktail/day-to-evening dresses, made in the UK, 5-week delivery and matching groom’s accessories (scrunchie ties/waistcoats) and bridesmaids. Wedding dresses use natural silks (are kinder to the environment as they haven’t undergone a dyeing process) and can be transformed afterwards into a chic party frock.

Found online and at the London showroom, off Brick Lane. Motasem is the middle name of Sabina Ali, meaning “having an attractive and imposing appearance suggestive of health and strength; good-looking and beautiful”.

About Sabina Motasem Bride

Sabina Ali, the designer behind Sabina Motasem Bride, studied Textile and Knitwear at DeMontfort University and spent several years in design and production on the high street and in media. In a change of direction she developed her graphic design skills and worked at Lehman Brothers, where she became aware of the great importance of branding and finance.

In 2005, she received commissions to design cocktail-style wedding dresses. They were a huge hit and other orders quickly followed. There was clearly a gap in the market and the idea for Motasem was born.

In the summer of 2006, Sabina won an award on the New Entrepreneur Scholarship and was selected to showcase her collection at Zandra Rhodes’ Fashion and Textile museum.

Sabina made the difficult decision to leave her full-time city job in May 2008 and hasn’t looked back since.
