About Amber Abare

Amber Abare is an Amsterdam based made-to-order evening and wedding label founded in 2020 by Nanda van Asperen. A deep interest and fascination for the complexity of women and their layered personalities is what drives the brand’s design approach.

Each unique piece is an exploration of opposing female elements – mysterious and open, strength and softness, sophisticated and sensuality – while embodying a signature edginess and ease. Amber Abare aims to reflect how a woman feels and how she sees herself, embracing the real you in every design.

Amber Abare carries a zero-waste policy; each design is made-to-order and all unique pieces are made locally, with care and detail under fair working conditions.

Nanda van Asperen

Founder and Creative Director

Nanda’s love for couture is inherited, passed down through generations. Growing up in a family of pattern cutters, Nanda has always been passioned by the slow process of creating or restoring clothes. The thoughtful exactness that goes into each design, the hard work that follows, the beautiful finished product. Nurturing this deep-rooted passion and her interest in women psychology, she started blending traditional craftsmanship and artisanal skills with a playful, open and creative mind.

With the launch of Amber Abare, Nanda wants to create impeccably executed couture pieces that reach far beyond fast fashion, concentrating on fit and quality instead of trends. Designing pieces that reflect women’s (desired) personalities and give them the means to express themselves and delight in their femininity is at the forefront of the brand’s ethos.

“Couture has the power to express the real you; revealing all parts of your personality, even the most vulnerable and edgy sides”.
