With a zealous work ethic that was handed down through her family, Sonia Cappellazzo puts her heart and soul into every gown she creates. Sitting pretty on the buzzing Burke Road, Camberwell, Cappellazzo has been luring brides through its door for years with bespoke wedding gowns.
Sonia studied at the Melbourne College of Design, before moving to Italy and earning her diploma in fashion and pattern-making at the Accademia Stibam. Her love of haute couture ultimately drew her back to Australia where she launched Cappellazzo Couture.
Cappellazzo designs boast swatches of stunning silks, French laces, hand-beaded fabrics and timeless silhouettes. Her gowns make the dream dress for brides seeking a classic look with modern detailing. One of Melbourne’s go-to couturiers, Cappellazzo designs are regularly spotted on the red carpet. In 2014, a Cappellezzo dress was featured as one of the top ten looks from the AFL Brownlow Medal Award red carpet.
