Our Story

Your wedding marks the beginning of a lifetime in partnership with the love of your life. Fifth & Welshire pieces were designed with this journey in mind.

 

OUR BRAND

Fifth & Welshire is a contemporary bridalwear collection created to transcend bridal norms. We believe that your wedding, and the commemorative moments surrounding it, should be met with elegance + individual style. Our pieces are specially designed for the bride who wants to look and feel incredible during each celebratory event, without compromising on quality, and without overpaying for an industry-standard, single wear dress.


Your wedding marks the beginning of a lifetime in partnership with the love of your life. Fifth & Welshire pieces were designed with this journey in mind. The collection presents classic, high-quality heirloom pieces that can be re-worn for other special life moments, and passed down with love. 



OUR FOUNDER

Fifth & Welshire was created as an extension of designer Kai Petty’s relationship with her mother and her grandfather, who taught Kai how to create bespoke pieces for each of her special life events, including her own wedding. The gift of being able to design and wear pieces that allowed her to maintain her personal style, without ever compromising on fit or quality, is a gift that Kai never took for granted. With generations of inherited family lessons, later followed by formal training at FIT in New York, Kai created Fifth & Welshire to share this gift with other brides.
