Lovingly handcrafted by the Sydney studio’s team of in-house artisans, the collection bridges the gap between couture and modern creative expression – meaning each piece can be cherished for years to come.
“There is nothing more special than a timeless piece that you can wear and style for many memorable occasions,” says Stephanie Caltabiano, creative director of Sant Elia. “The Drop One edit really embraces this concept and features pieces our shoppers will treasure forever.”
Each bodice comes in three classic colourways: ivory, nude and black. The ‘Kristen’ has proven to have stolen the hearts of brides the most courtesy of its sweet shoulder bow fastenings and ruched bodice detailing.
While sister bustier top ‘Emilia’ is an elevated take on minimalism. With a subtle asymmetric ruffle and luxe satin lining, she will look (and feel) gorgeous paired with a skirt or tailored pants.

Those itching to bring a little joy back into the art of dressing will fall for ‘Jules’. The structured bodice boasts conversation-starting 3D tulle ruffles and removable spaghetti straps. She’s destined for spontaneous date nights and post-nuptial dancing beneath the stars.
Curated Series is not only a mighty fine example of Sant Elia’s talents but demonstrates the brand’s unwavering commitment to sustainability, upcycling and repurposing.
“Sant Elia is committed to sustainability and our team of artisans are constantly workshopping initiatives to minimise our contribution to landfill. We are so proud of this edit and believe it aligns perfectly with our sustainability vision and goals,” Caltabiano adds.
Together Journal has had the pleasure of dropping by Sant Elia’s boutique studio space in Sydney, where brides and their parties are personally welcomed by Caltabiano and her talented team.
Drop One of Curated Series is now available to purchase on the Sant Elia boutique website. Each limited edition bodice is made-to-order by hand in the Australian atelier within five days.
