About Elisa Ness

Elisa Ness is the story of a mother and daughter who decide to challenge the codes of the wedding dress.

”I have always been immersed in the fashion world, with a curious eye on my mother’s professional activity.

Heiress of her know-how, I have access to embroidery techniques on which we rely to make modern and contemporary creations”.

Elisa Ness does not have a style, but rather a vision, that of couture creations. No fairy tales, only the quest for a modern and sophisticated silhouette, without clichés.

We do offer custom design services. The process lasts three months.

From their very first meeting with us, our bride will work together to establish their unique design. They are invited to try the exquisite dresses from the existing collection for inspiration, before discussing the details of their bespoke wedding dress.

We take pride in the perfect fit of every dress, and cotton toile fittings play an important part in the process. Once they are satisfied with the style and fit, their dress will be made in the final fabric, followed by further fittings to ensure an impeccable fit.​

Their one-of-a-kind dress is handcrafted by Melissa and her team, using only the highest quality materials and delicate details. Any final alterations will be made at your final fitting.
