Calliste means "the most beautiful' referring to a gorgeous nymph in the greek mythology. This is the inspiration behind Calliste Bride that exists to make you the most beautiful offering equal opportunities to all brides with zero compromizes. 

Compromises behind the Design, the Budget, the Fabrics, the Measurements, the Low Quality of service. We say no and provide solutions and 100% personalization. On top, we respect the environment reducing textiles waste to 0% that is one of the problems out of the fashion industry and we proudly support local female craft communities in the greek islands with exceptional & rare embroiderry techniques. 

Petra Kara is the Founder and lead Custom Designer of Calliste Bride.

She usually says that she has lived 2 lifes. In her 1st life she took Bachelor and Master Degree studies in Business, Marketing and Industrial Management and gained a rich 15 years working experience in Greece and Switzerland holding Brand Management and Marketing Research senior positions in P&G, the biggest FMCG multinational company globally. One day she created one wedding dress for a friend and that was it... She studied Fashion Luxury Design & Production and the 2nd life started serving the woman in her greatest moment...



Thus, our approach is not the typical designer approach where the designer inspiration comes first. It is all about you and designs are created from you.

Your wedding is an important moment for us, we stay close, we create personal relationship with you and are commited to your happiness.
