Kelly Love is an Australian fashion designer with a label in her own name. The signature behind the label is hand painted prints exclusive to the label, simple silhouettes made from beautiful fabrics and trims along with high quality workmanship.
The notion of owning a fashion label was instilled during days living in Japan working with Japanese fashion designer, Sin Nakayamal. Returning to Sydney, Kelly studied fashion at Raffles Institute of Design and completed work placements with Akira Isogawa, Charlie Brown and Fleur Wood.
Soon after completing her studies Kelly began working for the prestigious couture label Baccini and Hill and it was during this time that Kelly developed a taste for luxurious fabrics and precise tailoring which was apparent in her first collection “Beautiful Side of Everything”. This collection launched at the New Generations show of Australian Fashion Week.
Kelly’s work has been featured in UK and French Elle, LOOK Magazine, WWB Magazine, Company Magazine and Metro amongst many others and has been worn by Rihanna, Duffy & Lydia Bright. The label is stocked throughout the UK, Middle East, Asia & online.
In 2008 Kelly located to London where she is currently based.
