Fashion designer Amsale Aberra was born on March 1, 1954 in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. She later moved to the United States, where she received her B.A. degree in political science from Boston State College in 1981 and her A.A. degree from the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City in 1982. Upon graduation, Aberra was hired as a design assistant for Harve Benard, Ltd. Then, in 1985, when she was unable to find a gown for her own wedding, she founded the bridal gown company Amsale Aberra, Inc. As her business grew, she bought two other wedding design lines, Christos and Kenneth Pool, opened the Amsale flagship salon on New York's Madison Avenue, and went on to serve as co-chief executive officer and creative director of The Amsale Group. Aberra has dressed celebrities like Halle Berry and Selma Hayek, and her gowns have appeared in several feature films and television shows.
