Her love of glamour and high fashion inspires collections of sophisticated, vibrant femininity, marked by superb fit, originality and inimitable construction. A signature touch of unrestrained luxury reflects her Italian and Spanish heritage.

The Second Generation: ABOUT VERONICA DI SANTO
Veronica Di Santo has been working with Ines Di Santo, her mother, since the age of five. Growing up in the atelier and coming to oversee all aspects of creating a gown – from inception to construction – Veronica has naturally developed her own stream of silhouettes, adding a contemporary freshness to her mother’s luxe classics.
Much of Veronica’s passion is traveling the globe to trunk shows and special events, experiencing the latest in the world of bridal couture. With an intrinsic eye for relaxed, youthful elegance, Veronica Di Santo has established her own atelier just north of the city, in Woodbridge, featuring among select lines, a wide array of Ines Di Santo bridal and evening gowns.
ABOUT THE COLLECTION
Rare is a bride who can deny the sentimental romance of a wedding gown, and none can deny the luxury of couture.
Ines Di Santo is instinctive about the female form. Draping each, unique silhouette to enhance, highlight and transform, her well-recognized designs are regularly featured in international bridal publications, and are carried at luxury retailers such as Bergdorf Goodman and Neiman Marcus.
Using her signature hand-ruching and tailoring techniques, the Ines Di Santo Collection is known for marrying a sculpted, polished bodice with sumptuously layered skirts and romantic detailing. The effect has garnered the brand an eager client base of discerning, and celebrity brides.
Brides-to-be have the choice of something wholly original or the option to customize a signature design. Working with the finest silks, tulle, embroidery and lace, each gown is created one at a time, by a team of highly trained seamstresses and hand beaders, specializing in European craftsmanship.
