Every bride-to-be is a muse
Elisabetta finds inspiration for her creations from two inexhaustible sources. One is the reality that surrounds her, made up of interests, travel, reading, cinema, theatre and unusual everyday details. The other is the brides-to-be, whom she loves to meet personally to listen to their wishes and get a feel for their personalities. Elisabetta’s empathy, dedication and attention to detail work in synch to honour and fully express the personality of her brides. The designer’s creativity adds the final, all-personal touch that is pure magic.
In 1997, the designer founded her company with Dario Mongioy – now General Manager – in Oleggio, where the brand’s Head Quarter is still located today, a stone’s throw from Lake Maggiore and close to Malpensa International Airport. Next to the workshop, offices and showroom, a fashion show room is dedicated to the presentation of its Collections.
An exquisitely Italian achievement, which has since led to 6 lines: EP Elisabetta Polignano, Vision, Signature, Vittoria Sposa, Joie de Vivre and Privée. Elisabetta Polignano’s dresses can now be found in over 90 boutiques throughout Italy and in some of the most important ateliers in Japan, the United States, the Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia and Korea.
Elisabetta Polignano’s Atelier is in Oleggio, in the province of Novara, in an enchanting and timeless setting. Situated in a charming corner of the heart of Piedmont, it’s just a few minutes away from Malpensa Airport. This space is a true oasis for those who wish to purchase an extraordinary wedding gown, tailor-made to celebrate one of the most important moments in their life. As soon as you step through the atelier’s doors, you are welcomed by an atmosphere of elegance and sophistication. The attention to detail and the care with which each gown is crafted are palpable in every corner. In Elisabetta Polignano’s atelier, emotions take shape in stunning dresses, creating an unbreakable connection between the designer and her clients. Here, dreams become a reality, and every gown is a tribute to love, beauty, and joy.
An explosion of Italian fruits and citrus, reminiscent of the “pure energy” that characterises Elisabetta Polignano’s atelier, with a typically national touch. Sicilian lemon, peach, and orange blossom are the top notes, combined with heart notes represented by extracts of chinotto, pomegranate, and bitter lemon. The base notes suggest, in addition to the dominant lemon, citrus flowers and bergamot. A 100ml bottle of pure perfume (without dyes) made in Italy, with a unisex fragrance, crafted using an ancient maturation process and housed in a square Italian glass bottle, sealed with an important white wenge wood cap, reflects the craftsmanship of the brand and the classicism of wedding gowns. A perfume with sensual yet fresh and sparkling scents, just like the personality of our brand.
My personal credo has always been one of maximum commitment to the things I do. That is why I dedicate all of myself to my work, which is first and foremost a great passion. A passion that has accompanied me since childhood and which, like all great passions, demands from me and my collaborators absolute dedication, rigour, continuous research and a desire to always do better. This is my mission. The greatest satisfaction for me is to dress the women who honour me as their choice and to see and feel them fulfilled. I like to ‘dress’ their personality, because I have always believed that clothing dresses the personality more than the person. I feel a very strong emotion when I can capture this unique aspect of each bride and enhance it, helping to reinforce the conscious confidence of the beauty that every bride has within herself. This is the essence of my work’.
