Born and raised in Australia, Kelly Love began her career working for a Japanese artist and fashion designer whilst living in Osaka. This influential role taught her the importance of creating a concept behind each individual piece, which is still apparent in her collections today. After two years, Kelly returned to Sydney where she studied Fashion Design at Raffles Institute of Design.
After completing her studies, Kelly was hired to work for a prestigious couture label. Whilst working on one-off pieces, she was given an insight into the meticulous craftsmanship and delicate fabrics of the couture world. After honing her skills, she moved to London where she launched her eponymous, ready-to-wear label.
KELLY LOVE is a feminine yet contemporary, luxury brand that specialises in craftsmanship. Kelly’s signature heavy silk satin sits alongside exclusive hand drawn sketches, luxurious outerwear is made from developing fabrics with Italian and French mills, and knitwear is crafted by hand from lambs wool, linen and cotton. Kelly believes that the inside of a garment should look as beautiful as the outside and she creates every piece with this in mind.
The label has an international appeal and is stocked in the UK, France, Switzerland, Belgium, Spain, The Netherlands, Canada, China and Japan. Kelly’s pieces are regularly featured in Grazia, Marie Claire, Elle, Instyle, Sunday Times Style & Harpers Bazaar amongst others.
Kelly lives and works in London.
