At just 14 years old, Elisabetta attended the school for designers in Bari, where she created her first small collections of formal wear for women and children. She then moved to Milan to study Architecture, from the capital of bridal gowns to the Italian capital of haute couture. In Milan, Elisabetta observed and investigated those elements of style, exactitude, refinement and experimentation which she learned to transfer to the world of bridal wear. In 1997 she founded the Elisabetta Polignano brand, marking the beginning of a new, all-Italian adventure. The brand has produced 6 lines sold around the world: EP Elisabetta Polignano, Vision, Signature, Vittoria Sposa, Joie de Vivre and Privée.
