Behind the Design Process with Kelly

Behind the Design Process with Kelly


From learning to sew with her grandmother in childhood to moving to New York after completing her degree in fashion design and working her way up in the bridal industry, our designer Kelly Faetanini was destined for the world of bridal design from a young age. The moment she discovered the world of bridal at 18 something just clicked, and she’s been making her mark on the industry ever since. From designing and selling her first bridal gown at the age of 19 to being the youngest designer to debut at fashion week at only 23, Kelly Faetanini’s passion and energy for all things bridal have shone through from the beginning up until today.


Romantic, feminine, and timeless, each one of Kelly Faetanini’s bridal designs are made with care and the utmost attention to detail. Kelly works with a range of fabrics including smooth mikado, soft tulle, luxurious lace, organza, crepe, chiffon, and more to create bridal styles that are nothing short of the new classic. From A-line silhouettes to ball gown shapes and sheath fits, there’s a little something to bring out each bride’s unique sense of style and beauty from the Kelly Faetanini bridal collections.



When it comes to Kelly’s design principles, the needs and dreams of the bride who will wear her gowns is at the heart of her creative process. It is not enough for the designer to simply make dresses - she’s invested in the impact that her creations have on the women who wear them.



Finding a wedding dress is an extremely intimate and emotional process. To make sure all her brides feel a true sense of care, all Kelly Faetanini bridal gowns are fully customizable to make sure she achieves the wedding dress she has been dreaming of without having to settle or compromise. Brides are welcome to choose their sleeves, fabrics, and even colors to make their dream dresses a reality with Kelly Faetanini designs.
