Kelly’s enthusiasm for glamorous and elegant gowns started early in life. Growing up in the Midwest, her grandmother taught her the fine art of tailoring at a young age and encouraged Kelly’s creativity and innate ability to design dresses. Kelly pursued her talent and passion throughout her youth and set off for the International Academy of Design & Technology in Chicago to continue her studies. Her love of romance and whimsy led Kelly directly to bridal gown design. After graduating, Kelly moved to New York City to pursue her designer dreams and was soon offered an opportunity to join the influential bridal couture house Priscilla of Boston, founded over sixty-five years ago. There, Kelly collaborated in the design and development of the namesake Priscilla of Boston bridal and bridesmaid collections. While at the company, Kelly was mentored by iconic bridal designers such as Kenneth Pool and Melissa Sweet. As the Priscilla of Boston bridal group expanded, Kelly was chosen to launch and design a new collection, Jewel by Priscilla of Boston, which focused on the youthful princess bride. Kelly excelled in offering brides the perfect designer gown and the collection became an instant success. The desire to fulfill her own dreams led Kelly to conceive her eponymous collection in April 2012.
