Get to know Clara:
Clara DeLisio wears many hats these days, including one of her favorites as Co-Owner of Galleria Gowns Bridal Boutique. Together, with her mother Pina Sbrocca, the duo built their business from the ground up. Pina opened the business in 1998 while Clara was completing her BA in Education at Ohio University. Soon after graduation, Clara found herself working at the boutique and loving every minute of it. Fueled by her passion for fashion and design, she quickly learned every aspect of running the business, from buying trips to Chicago with her mother to fulfilling the CFO duties. In addition to picking and choosing all of the inventory, she made sure to learn how to sew and fit dresses properly. Through the years, she has custom designed many bridal gowns to make them one of a kind!
Clara has been humbled to see the store and business grow throughout the years from a small 1,400 sq. ft. boutique to its new and current location of 6,000 sq. ft. On any given Saturday, you will find Clara in her element at the boutique helping brides find their dream dresses. To her, this is the most rewarding part….making friends along the way!
