Just AMAZING! Kelly made this for me in double layered white with two modifications that I requested (closed back and thigh split). Let me tell you, this was THE DRESS! I wore it for my wedding, and the pictures are just breathtaking. I felt like a Hollywood starlet. Also, Kelly was super communicative and any message I sent was returned within minutes (literally). I will say that in white, even double-layered, this dress/material is very unforgiving. I couldn't wear anything (at all) under it. Even seamless support garments showed. Still, the final outcome was PERFECT! If I could leave 100 stars, I would. Kelly is a true professional and an artist. I'm so glad I trusted her with my dress <3

It just came and is beautiful! It fits me like a glove, and all the tiny modifications I requested (different color, different length of ties) were done perfectly. She was wonderful to work with throughout this - so flexible and responsive. Highly recommend.

About

Hi!! Kelly, here. Just wanted to tell you a bit about myself and my designs. My shop originally started from me wanting a dress for an event and I couldn't find anything I loved. I was looking for something classic, but with a little edge. I started playing around with fabric, which resulted in the backless dress - my personal favorite. The other designs came to life in the following months and my little design family had been created.

My feather shoes have a birth story of their own. I've always had so much inspiration from Alexander McQueen (the man, himself). I've studied fashion design at two separate schools and am one of the annoying people who sit at the computer during fashion week anxiously waiting images from the runways. McQueen was my favorite. He married design with art in a pseudo-rebellious way. He was unlike any other designer because crossed the two concepts effortlessly, so I was a bit devastated after his passing. The feather pumps were actually a tribute to the last collection he designed and they are a symbol of his inspiration to me.

All things aside, I just want thank you for visiting my shop. Your support means the world to me. Feel free to send a message, ask a question or just say hi. You're always welcome.

-Kelly
