Having been a recent bride myself, I know the value of uniqueness and personal touch. After a successful career as the head designer of the Jewel by Priscilla of Boston Collection, I decided to chase my dreams and establish my namesake brand to create timeless yet unique dresses that are at once high-end, but also affordable.
I've always been inspired and awed by the elegance and art that can be achieved by needle and thread. Growing up in Sandusky, Ohio, I learned the fine art of tailoring from my grandmother. I will always be grateful to her for starting me on this exciting path and for nurturing my creativity and talent. I took this passion with me to the International Academy of Design & Technology in Chicago in 2003 and have been designing ever since. I currently live in New York City with my husband, Clint, and my adorable puppy, Lizzy.
After launching my much-anticipated collection in 2012, I established myself in the bridal industry as an up-and-coming bridal designer with signature details that include buttons trailing from bodice to hem, customizable beading, and detachable necklines that give brides multiple looks on their wedding day. At Kelly Faetanini our personal consulting and customization makes each wedding gown a special and unique experience for our bride. After all, a bride's special day should be just that--Special. I am Kelly Faetanini and I welcome you to my world.
