The Fall 2018 issue of MunaLuchi Bride magazine is now live! The foldout cover story is a tribute to iconic Ethiopian-American fashion designer Amsale Aberra, featuring the designs of MunaLuchi Coterie members, Yemi Osunkoya, Andrea Pitter, Nneka Alexander, and Jean-Ralph Thurin, who share the impact that Amsale had on their own careers, and how her designs contributed to re-shaping the bridal fashion industry.

In the Fall 2018 issue of MunaLuchi, we had the pleasure of producing a fashion editorial shoot in tribute to the late Amsale Aberra.

The Editorial featured new wedding gown designs by 4 prominent black wedding gown designers. Each designer also had the opportunity to discuss how Amsale has influenced their careers in the fashion industry. Over the next couple of days, we are sharing each designer interview with you, as seen in the Fall 2018 issue. Take some time to get to know these talented designers.
