Ceremony Magazine Los Angeles 2014 | Interview with Ines Di Santo

Interview with Ines Di Santo

By Jennifer J. Petrini

When did you know you were meant to be a designer?
I always loved playing with dolls and I had a baby sister, Angela. When she was about nine months old, I set her on top of some material and cut around her. I was seven at the time. And yes, I made her an outfit.

Why design bridal gowns?
This is my hobby, not my work. I love it. I want to make dreams come true. As a designer, the day of the wedding is the most important in one’s life. A bride should live it like she’s on the red carpet.

Five words that describe your 2014 collection?
Soft, romantic, edgy, glamorous, sexy.

What inspired the current line?
The Gardens of Paris. French lace, flowering flowers, leaves, and lots of color.

Advice to brides on finding THE DRESS?
The gown is PERSONALITY. It should suit you and be a reflection of who you are and the way you want to look. It should also enhance your figure. You don’t want to see a different person in your pictures. Those go beyond and become a part of your history.

Who is your favorite fashion designer?  
Christian Dior inspires me for draping and Versace for color. Versace uses the most difficult colors and creates true beauty.

What should a bride remember on her wedding day?
To be happy and enjoy every moment as it goes by so fast. It may only be one day you’re in that gown but it’s for the rest of your life.

Final thoughts?
Love is the most important thing. Love the person, Love the dress. I wish Lovella Bridal, this magnificent store, all the best!
