The Founder

The label was founded in 2007 by Sabina Motasem, a multi-faceted fashion and graphic designer who launched a ready-to-wear range of designer cocktail dresses during London Fashion Week. Shortly after, Sabina designed a wedding dress as an extra-special gift for a friend who couldn’t find a simple, elegant dress amongst all the froufrou styles. Five 'special gifts' later, the idea for Sabina Motasem Bridal was born, which led Sabina to being mentored by the late Anita Roddick of Body Shop fame, at the British Library. 

One of the main objectives right from the start, was to create a sustainable wedding dress, which could be worn again and again after the big day, despite there being very little consumer interest in anything ethical considerations during the Noughties, sadly. But doing things right and doing things better was always intrinsically THE core fundamental values of Sabina Motasem and still is.

Word quickly spread, and what started as a side hustle soon became a highly sought-after brand that has been dressing chic brides all over the world.
