British bridal label Sabina Motasem Bride, which specialises in luxuriously understated elegant wedding and cocktail dresses, is to showcase their brand new collection in Manchester later this month.

Sabina Ali, head designer says "The new collection oozes the glamour and sophistication of old and new Hollywood with a quirky modern twist, using geometry and simplicity combined with simple shapes, reminiscent of the Art Deco style." She says she found inspiration for the collection from the style and glamour of the Folies Bergeres in 1900s - 1930s Paris, and each dress is named after an inspirational iconic performer from that era.

The full collection will be available to view at the launch of Te Amo Bridal Boutique, at The Wedding HQ, in the heart of Manchester's Northern Quarter on 23 and 24 June, which is also the day when the Olympic torch will be going through the city.

Make a day of it and book a free fitting with Sabina who will be there for the whole weekend. Oh! And there's 15% discount on all purchases made from the Collection on the day.

It's important to book a place, so go to eventbrite for more information.
