di Gio has to be one of my favorite designer lines after the big three: Dior, Chanel and Valentino. I fell in love with di Gio back in the 1990s when I bought my first Vogue Sposa Magazine. Clients who read Sposa and happened upon this clean-lined collection, often wanted to incorporate some element from a di Gio gown into their own design. Today I still give the Sposa di Gio line A+ for purity of line and fabrication. Founded in 1975 by the di Capitani sisters of Italy, their look has always been consistent, contemporary and realistic for today’s bride. You'll usually find one exquisite detail on every piece . . . enough to accentuate but never overpower the wearer. They are truly a great inspiration to the world of bridal fashion . . .

For a more comprehensive look at di Gio's collection, check out their website. If you're a bride living in the US you can find out more about Le Sposa di Gio through Joan Gilbert Bride in San Francisco.
