Ms Panatou pays tribute to the other most symbolic ceremony, the baptism. A blend of royalty and innocence is characteristic of her “Basilica Babies” Christening gowns. They are designed to be pure, luxurious and to be worn in honour of one’s faith, then kept as the family heirloom. Being the godmother of four godchildren herself, she knows how important an impression the christening gown makes on the day of a baby’s baptism.
Ms Panatou’s elegant sense of style combined with her refined taste enables her to create these beautiful and imaginative gowns. She designs them to be original and in limited editions, by varying details from gown to gown, in the fabrics, finishes, trims or sewing techniques therefore your baby will be dressed exclusively. They are custom made of the finest quality imported fabrics and each includes the signature Basilica Babies bonnet or cap.
Ms Panatou can also create a christening gown from the baby’s mother’s wedding gown. The bodice, skirt and veil are transformed into a magnificent christening gown giving it a great significance on the family tree while at the same time paying great homage to the celebrated wedding gown.
The Basilica Couture salon also has a collection of ready to wear heirloom christening gowns, outfits and infant specialty clothing of the highest quality from the US. Here you will find infant baptism apparel and accessories to fit every price range and discriminating preference.
