In 2000, Kelly Chase Couture formed when Kelly’s lifelong dream of bringing beautiful designs to life merged with Chase’s talents for business.
At the age of 5, Kelly began sewing with her mother and created her first tailored garment at age 13. At this early age of 13, with one hand on her hip and a lot of attitude, she told her father, “Someday, I’m going to become a fashion designer.” Father and daughter struck a deal: If she earned a B.A. from the University of Wisconsin in apparel design (which she did), he would send her to the F.I.T. in New York City to study fashion design. She graduated F.I.T. Magna Cum Laude – and so the journey began.
Chase is the Chief Executive Officer and co-founder of Kelly Chase Couture. He oversees the day-to-day operations, marketing and branding, graphics, sourcing of materials, and labor. Chase received his B.A. in Sociology and Anthropology from Valdosta State University. After graduating, he attended The Ocean Corporation in Houston, Texas, where he was trained to be a commercial diver to work in the offshore oil industry. It was in Houston where he first met Kelly; she was in the city working as a Bridal Designer.
With the combination of Chase’s business skills and Kelly’s passion for design, Kelly Chase Couture was born. The couple recently relocated their lives and corporate headquarters to south Florida, where they have the best of both worlds: a connection to the sea and a solid base for high fashion. Since 2001, Kelly Chase Couture has introduced new collections every year.
2013 Kelly Chase Couture opened their flagship bridal & evening wear salon in Naples Florida. From here they are able to work directly with South Florida Brides as well as those which fly in from all over the world. Working directly with customers they are able to create their brides perfect gown and truly make dreams come true.
