Ines Di Santo was raised in Buenos Aires. Her parents inspired her and supported her interests in the arts from a young age. She studied fine arts and design in Argentina and Milan. Di Santo’s Spanish and Italian heritage can be seen in the inspiration for most of her collections. Her signature look captures a particularly sophisticated elegance that enhances a woman’s femininity. Her designs are always unique and quality pieces of art, especially because she oversees the production of each and every gown. Ines’ daughter, Veronica was blessed with the same passion as her mother. Growing up around the fashion, design and creativity her mother created, Veronica now infuses her own inspiration into her mother’s staples to create new and fun looks.
We had the pleasure of viewing the latest Ines Di Santo collection when we made our most recent trip to NYC. We saw Sweet silhouettes without a doubt and we are not talking about the cake and pastry set of the Fall 2017 Ines Di Santo Bridal Collection. Always a flare for the dare is what we say as Ines was truly the very first to work with the illusion gowns before they became popular. Over the years we have come to know Ines as a forward thinker, not to be an apprehensive designer who can take a classic silhouette and turn it into an absolute masterpiece. Ines is phenomenal at bringing her design to life in a way not only bridal salon buyers see the vision, but brides can see themselves in the vision as well. Let’s take a look at her Fall 2017 collection. From the amazing off-the-shoulder ball gown to the dramatic mythical blue ball gown, all the dreams of a bride came to life with peplum detachable trains to the elongated illusion, unwieldy sleeves with delicate 3D blue blossoms throughout the silhouettes. From classic form to astonishing modern interpretations of these silhouettes the long trains flow gracefully and softly.
Embellishments and artistically designed patterns of detail are endless with the designs of Ines Di Santo. They are like taking a painting and sketch and transferring it onto an organza or silk satin canvas. Like an artist, each element has a place, each stitch has a purpose, which influences the design moving in tempo to the overall sophistication and elegance that is only Ines DiSanto. And yes, the cake and cupcake stage set left our sweet tooth wanting more! Bravo Ines!
