Norman Ambrose at Neiman Marcus Atlanta

 It was so fun to catch up with our friend, the amazingly talented and charming Norman Ambrose, last week. His couture designs are what every girl dreams of wearing, and we immediately fell in love with his new fur collection debuted at Neiman Marcus. Each piece is handcrafted in the U.S. with the personal attention of Mr. Ambrose. His designs offer a combination of expertise in pattern, construction, and color—a refreshing detour from the brown fur coat. The finest furs and skilled fabrication make his collection luxe, but it is Ambrose’s commitment to the woman first that makes it truly exceptional.

See the entire collection here, and learn more about Ambrose’s incredible artistry with our Q&A below:
