Kari Vettese founded VETTESE in Los Angeles California. Vettese is a first generation American, with her entire family hailing from Italy. Vettese uses luxurious sustainable fabrics and raw edges in her designs to flatter and accentuate the figure; much of her own life inspires her designing process.  The wearer is strong, and powerful with intensive plays on proportion, draping, and fabric manipulations. 

VETTESE is known for her craftsmanship among her dresses and tubing and her unisex suiting pieces. She creates luxury wardrobe staples to be worn and cherished forever.

VETTESE has become notable for dressing some of the most respectable names in entertainment and fashion and featured in several publications such as Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, Forbes and more.
