Concetta Cipriano is a Chicago-based women's wear dress designer.  Beginning as a self-taught dress-maker, Concetta continued her formal education with a degree in Fashion Design and Studio Art from Dominican University in River Forest along with programs in Florence, Italy.

In 2011 Concetta was selected as one of six designers to participate in the Chicago Fashion Incubator; a year-long prestigious  program sponsored by Macy's and the City of Chicago for up and coming designers.  Soon after, she opened up her first studio on the northwest side of Chicago.  Since the launch of her brand, Cettina has become a favorite among Chicago women looking for that special dress to wear to a wedding, cocktail event, or a night out with friends.  

Her work has been featured in Refinery 29, the RedEye, Be U Weddings, Racked Chicago, Michigan Avenue Magazine, CS Weddings, ABC-7, and WGN.

"...Concetta works with brides-to-be and bridesmaids to ensure their dream dresses exceed their expectation."
