The Designer

Have you ever cared about something so much that you felt the PASSION and ENERGY of that very thing run through your body like electricity?

Meet the designer

Kelly Faetanini

When I discovered the world of weddings at the very young age of 18, I knew it was my calling in life. Being a wedding dress designer was my way to touch women around the world. This was so crystal clear that doing nothing else in my life would suffice.


At the age of 19, I created and sold my first wedding gown to a bride in Chicago. The overwhelming feeling of honor and pure joy that I felt seeing how my creation made someone feel so beautiful and happy was a feeling I will never forget. It’s the feeling that motivates me and it has powered me up to this day.


Fashion isn’t an easy industry to get into. After a couple of years of relentlessly fighting for a foot in the door in bridal, I became an assistant designer at the renowned Priscilla of Boston bridal brand. I knew I had so much more to offer to brides around the world. I spent every day proving to everyone around me that I could do just that. At the age of 23, I became the youngest wedding gown designer on the runway at New York Bridal Fashion Week. But I very quickly realized that I never wanted to just design wedding gowns. It was so much more than that for me. I wanted to make a difference and create an impact.

In 2012, I knew it was my time to step up and create a brand that truly cared about each and every one of its brides and not just the “sale” of the dress. Anyone can design and sell wedding gowns. But not everyone has the heart and soul with the intentions the way I do.
