Our Creative Director
Loyal to her métier as Creative Director and Founder, Stephanie Caltabiano bridges the gap between traditional bridal couture and modern creative expression. After graduating in 2012 with a Bachelor of Design in Fashion and Textiles at the University of Technology Sydney, Stephanie had several years of industry experience working across fast-fashion to high-end brands.
Looking to fulfill her creative visions Stephanie moved into couture and founded Sant Elia. To Stephanie, Sant Elia is more than a labour of love, it’s the tangible expression of bringing one's dream to life. Stephanie devotes her time and expertise to her brides creating invaluable experiences, imparting a piece of her heart with every creation from the Sant Elia Atelier.
Established in 2014 as a project of love to explore the artistry of bridal fashion, Sant Elia has evolved into one of Sydney’s premium couture bridal labels. At the helm, Creative Director and Founder Stephanie Caltabiano is mused by the individual bride, her sense of style and modes of self expression.
Stephanie creates for the purpose of giving life to each unique vision with Sant Elia’s signature charm and an aura of sophistication. Synonymous with the vivacious strength of women, Sant Elia remains authentic to Stephanie’s mediterrean roots which extends into the Atelier experience, where each bride is personally welcomed and consulted by Stephanie and her team of artisans, as part of the family.
Designed and hand-made in our Sydney studio
Established in 2014 at our first studio in Leichhardt, Sant Elia relocated in 2016 to our permanent studio and showroom in Petersham, where we continue to design and create on-site.
