Alessandra grew up surrounded fabrics and lace, tape measures and scissors, and has always had a passion for beauty, luxury and elegance. Perhaps you could say she was born to be a bridal designer?
Here’s the answer in her own words...
Growing up among lace and precious fabrics, in her mother’s bridal store, Alessandra Rinaudo, was surrounded by the elegance and refinement of bridal fashion.

Being Pronovias Chief Artistic Officer is a dream come true for Alessandra.
