Launched in 2013, Campodoro Bride is rooted in my background, and hands-on experience, as a designer, custom dress maker, and student of couture technique. I believe that each gown is a work of art, and that should be unmistakable to my brides.

I studied design at Polimoda, in Florence Italy, where I was exposed to an Italian sensibility towards fashion design, art, and architecture. Ultimately graduating from the Fashion Institute of Technology, I went on to work as a designer in New York & Italy. After designing and creating my own wedding gown I was inspired to begin accepting private clients for custom bridal, and evening gowns. During this period, I designed, draped and constructed each garment by hand, refining my skills in couture sewing and dress making.

The Campodoro collection features French laces, Italian silks, and couture finishing. In order to ensure the highest standards of quality, all of our gowns are produced in New York City, where each piece is meticulously constructed inside and out. The inspired designs, and attention to detail result in truly glamourous gowns of unmistakable quality and unforgettable beauty.
