A letter to the future Sposabella bride…
Hello, my name is Amy and I’m the owner of Sposabella. It’s lovely to meet you and congratulations on your engagement.
I can’t wait to help you find your perfect wedding dress. But first a little bit about myself.
When I was a little girl I received a beautiful blank sketch book and I filled its pages with drawings of dresses and different outfits. I had a wild imagination and before I could start any adventure I had to have a clear idea of what my ‘character’ was wearing, and I could only move on to the adventure once I let the outfit idea into the world by drawing it. This is where my love for fashion started.
I completed my fashion and business degree cum laude from the University of Pretoria in 2016. While studying, I worked at a bridal boutique on the weekends where I really learnt the ins and outs of the different fabrics, styles and silhouettes that wedding dresses come in. After graduation, I gained valuable experience in the fashion industry working as a buyer for a number of years.
Towards the end of 2019, the opportunity arose for me to buy Sposabella. I could not let this opportunity pass and jumped at it. After spending two months travelling up and down from the Natal Midlands I moved down to Umhlanga. I have settled in well, and have even started surfing!
At Sposabella we want to help turn our bride’s dreams into reality. You have already found ‘The One’, now it is up to us to help you find the perfect dress. We are the exclusive KZN stockists of Enzoani Beautiful Collection and Sincerity by Justin Alexander.
