Ines Di Santo is taking the bridal wear stratosphere by storm, crafting artistic vision into sumptuous design with a flourish of fantastical textiles and intuitive ingénue. Di Santo’s couturier collection derives inspiration from the illustrious facets of the elusive diamond – intricate frosted beading, crystallized blossoms, Swarovski encrusted bodices, and foamy voluminous skirts shine with an unparalleled luster.
precious elegance
Ines di santo 1
The gown “Diamond,” is a gem-laden deluge of dazzling silver lame – its rouched silhouette adorned with a glinting beaded bodice, flirtatious sweetheart neckline, and a beaded appliqué perched upon the hip, while a trumpeting skirt lusciously lifts thanks to a series of melodious pickups throughout.
Seeped in hues of translucent wine, the strapless empire gown, “Topaz,” is reminiscent of a lost classical era, veiled in a mist of exquisite Chantilly lace with an elegant fit-to-flare cut that descends into otherworldly three-dimensional flowers and a prismatic silk satin organza underlay.
“Hope” exudes an antique ivory afterglow, alongside a sea-surf skirt of silk taffeta and carats worth of intricate asymmetrical rouching and Antoinette-esque blossom attachés swirling together in dreamy fulfillment.

“Turquoise” boasts a delicate rouched bodice that blossoms into a strapless sweetheart neckline while its fantastical hem burgeons into a mushroom silhouette with an embellished side appliqué flouncing cinematic flair.
The silk satin organza, drop-waisted gown “Marquise” dons an encrusted halter, beaded bust, and sweetheart neckline suggestive of lofty noblesse oblige and opulent clustered rings, sparing no luxury as it culminates into an ostrich feather skirt and frosted tulle leaf detailing.
“Akoya’s” rouched silk taffeta blushes with 1920’s cultured pearl rosé overtones, remaining sleekly strapless with a peek-a-boo hem. Hand-crafted flowers in petalesque pinks and greens are revealed with sleight-of-hand whimsy while a detachable overskirt dons a prominent cascade of roses.

“Jade’s” chromatic off-white mermaid silhouette, is seeped in mysterious folds of silk shantung while an ornamental bodice and dramatic rouched skirt lend a kid-glove hand to an incomparable and unforgettable sheen.
The gown “Crystal” provides a columnesque palette of silk chiffon – asymmetrical rouching envelopes a strapless bodice while whispers of faceted appliqués caress the silhouette at both the bust and hip.
“Gigi,” a strapless, silk peau de soie gown delves into grande Parisian courtesan luxe with its beaded scoop neckline and fit-to-flare flowery delineation. Coquettish yet classic, “Gigi’s” design speaks softly of midnight gardens and moon-bathed pools.
splendid opulence

“Tianna” speaks with epic grandeur and floor-sweeping aristocracy, thanks to a glittering concoction of beaded diamante straps, a dramatically dropped waistline, lace-ruffled bodice, and softly swooning skirt of Italian silk taffeta accented by delicate ethereal pickups.
The gown “Havana” is a vision of glinting Italian silk taffeta and refined Chantilly lace overlay simmering in effortless – a striking strapless cut features a willowy rouched torso and a sultry crystal-beaded belt.
With its spiraling rouched detailing and fantastical mermaid silhouette, “Francine,” simply radiates - a murmuring sweetheart neckline, effervescent Italian silk train, and picturesque pastiche of eloquent floral clusters evoke mystical antiquity and subtle nuance.
