After years of fashion design studies and retail jobs, Kelly finally plunged dressfirst into that whole clothing line thing. Her first original collection is full of re-imagined classics––dresses that take cues from the flair of 1950s fashion without looking out of place at an after-work cocktail party. Or any other form of soiree, for that matter. It can take weeks to perfect a pattern––ensuring it has a flattering, comfortable fit––but this is a challenge that Kelly welcomes. Because waiting to see her vision come to life and bring a smile to the lucky wearer? Well worth it.
