More: Kelly Ryan


At Barry Keiselstein-Cord, Kelly designed the luxury handbag collection which debuted at Bergdorf-Goodman and promptly sold out. Some of these designs are in the permanent collection at the New York Metropolitan Museum. After three incredible years of working for Barry, gaining extensive knowledge of international manufactures and tanneries, Kelly opened her own design atelier in 1992.

The Kelly Ryan line of precious jewelry was sold to Bergdorf-Goodman and her flagship store in Soho as well as her second boutique Tokyo, Japan. Her atelier also designed costume jewelry and handbags for private label clients such as Valentino and Donna Karan. Most recently Kelly has designed handbags for Karl Lagerfeld and J.Mendel.



Wherever my travels may take me, I draw from it—both figuratively and literally in my sketchbook.
