Make your dreams come true with Antonia Sautter's magnificent period costumes
"The mixture of my father’s German blood and the Venetian blood from my mother runs through my veins, and I inherited my restless, inquiring spirit from my forefathers. I am an artisan and a dreamer engaged in a never-ending quest in my native city, Venice.” This is how Antonia Sautter, the queen of Venice’s high society, describes herself. The famous ‘Il Ballo del Doge’ (organized every year by Antonia at Palazzo Pisani Moretta) is the most sumptuous of Carnival extravaganzas in Venice. An artistic event, a gala dinner and one of high society’s absolute ‘musts’!
Just steps from St. Mark’s Square, the Antonia Sautter Atelier is a magical world filled with all types of masks and costumes. A real hive of couturier activity dedicated to the creation of made-to-measure period costumes, fashionable clothing and accessories. The exquisite fabrics, sartorial details, prints, embroidery and chromatic pairings skillfully re-elaborated and interpreted by the designer, tell a story of a passion for artisanal tradition. The craftsmanship involved in this process retains the authenticity of the production techniques used to manufacture velvets, damasks, brocades and Venetian silks. In addition, the bags, shoes, scarves, kimonos and fashion accessories are all exclusive pieces, and available for purchase at Venetia Boutiques, close to St. Mark’s Square (San Marco, 1286 Frezzeria). All products can be customized and delivered worldwide. >> Atelier Antonia Sautter
