Cece Kent

The “Hermes” of Designer Labels in Dog Carriers and Accessories

Cece KentCece’s inspiration in creating a fashionable and comfortable line to pamper dogs grew out of her love her for two precious Shih Tzu’s, Coco at nine years old and young Cassie at a year and half old.  “They are the loves of my life and like all pets and children should be, they are spoiled rotten,” she says.  For all their love and devotion, they “absolutely deserve the best,” she adds.  When Cece first began shopping for her girls, she was unable to find accessories that represented her personal sense of fashion and style.  She then began making bows with fine ribbons and lovely accents for her girls to wear.  The extra attention they received because of their special adornments inspired her to develop a designer label for canine accoutrements.  After that, she collaborated with an extremely talented design team who also shared her vision.  Soon after, she unveiled four distinct Cece Kent signature collections: Lilly, Ralph, Kate and Charles, to each reflect a certain lifestyle or mood of the moment.

Cece graduated from California State University Northridge where she majored in Business specializing in Marketing and Finance.  Post graduation, she had many successful years in corporate America as she was held various corporate marketing positions where she created campaigns and programs focusing on customer desires and needs.  Her degree enabled her to Cece Kentbring talents necessary to not only implement her dream but also manage the necessary disciplines needed to launch a successful collection.  Cece Kent has the most creative and high quality bows we have ever encountered.  The Diamonds Bow features an adorable triple-layered bow with ribbons of lavender, pink, and pastel plaid, fixed with a diamond center cluster.  Your princess will be putting on the ritz with this sparkly cluster and feminine pastel ribbon bow.  This bow is also available in other color and fabric combinations. 

For Cece, sharing fashion with her canine companions makes perfect sense.  Her dedication in ensuring down to the last detail that each signature item – dog carriers, collars, leads, harnesses, jewelry and bows, meets her impeccable standards for fashion and craftsmanship is certainly evident.  Cece says, “My hope has been that each client  will not only discover a wonderful new way in which to bond with their special friend, but that they will also encounter incredible opportunities to greet and meet  others who are similarly connected to their dogs and also love fashion.  Just like my Coco and Cassie, I hope each client’s dog will love all the extra compliments from looking extra special.”  The Ralph collection incorporates Italian leather, antiqued brass, hand stitching, leather braiding, and natural jewel stones as hallmarks of this ensemble.  Our Cece KentEditor’s Pick selected the Taos Carrier for its beautifully textured, pre-aged Italian leather, comfortability, and ability to blend in as a handbag.  At one end is a mesh window allowing for your dog to see its surroundings and get fresh air while the other side features the same, with an open slot allowing easy access or for your dog’s head to pop out.  This airline approved carrier also has ventilation holes on the bottom of each end for cooling when its privacy flaps are closed over the mesh ends.  An interior safety leash, along with a removable padded insert is perfect for sneaking your dog anywhere.  This can hold up to 8 pounds and is perfect for your toy yorkie or maltese.    

Cece KentCece Kent products have been used in television ads and shown at New York Pet Fashion Week.
They also support various shelters and breed rescue auctions as well as celebrity charity events, where they have contributed products that celebrities love.  Tara Reid adores the Nantucket Carrier, which she got for her baby.  Unlike others providers in the pet industry, the Cece Kent signature collection “represents a culmination of fashion savvy, design artistry and skilled craftsmanship – plus a wholehearted kinship with dogs and their human best friends.”  Cece adds, “All materials, patterns and fabrication elements incorporated in each line down to the details have resulted from a worldwide search so that we consistently make a superior product.”  From fashion to function and from durability to comfort, they never compromise their essential goal of premium designer quality. 

Cece KentThe Lilly collection is a whimsical and luxurious line aimed to pamper your little princes with kidskin leathers, vibrant fabrics from the runways of Milan, rhinestones, charms, ribbons and pearls.  From Lilly, we adore the Beverly Hills Step-in-Harness that makes it easy for your little princess to step into and a snap to secure with the sturdy and smooth sliding harness closure.  The integrated lead features Italian kidskin, pink graffiti print fabric, and polished silver-tone connector rings.  Your dog will turn heads with this couture harness and lead as she strolls down the street in style.  Each harness and collar is nicely packaged in a clear, heavy duty, reusable plastic gift pouch that can safely store when not in use or act as a treat bag to hold favorite snacks.  The Cece Kent signature collection not only “symbolizes the value we place of fashion’s role in helping us look our best, but it also honors the log cherished relationship between humans and dogs.”  Cece and her products are dedicated to offer pets the utmost in luxury so that owners can spoil their pets in giving them the very best. 

Cece KentFor owners who identify with Chanel’s legendary black and white style, the Kate collection is the perfect line for their canine companions.  This collection includes designs incorporating a black and white contrast, pebble-grained Italian leathers, sateen nylon, pave rhinestones, clear crystals, mother-of-pearl, and flowered charms to complete the overall sleek and sophisticated look.  We adore the Opera Bow that will “tickle any fancy” with its black-and-white ribbons complete with a touch of polka dots and accented with sparkly rhinestones.  When asked to share her favorite items from each category were, it was a tough question as she “loves them all.”  Her ideas come from staying close to fashion trends and designing pieces that are both classic and reflective of the best designs in current market.  When it comes to her products and designing, she determines the need to be filled as well as a general vision and the function of the piece.  Cece then works with others for details in finishing the design and finding manufacturing options to implement the final product.

The classic line is periodically changing as new pieces and designs are added to replace old styles.  Cece Kent tries to reflect the needs expressed by clients as well as emerging fashion trends.  Her family consists of her two beloved Shih Tzu’s, her fabulous husband, who is also her partner in Cece Kent, and a talented and accomplished daughter who is happily married with a four-legged baby of their own.  She sees herself continuing the Cece Kent vision of fashionable designs for the discriminating dog lover who wants the ultimate treat for their beloved companions.  Cece Kent products are sold in retail boutiques and online stores worldwide.  Her line is carried in several hundred high-end boutiques in the United States and in exclusive boutiques in France, Belgium, Russia, Switzerland, Spain and Canada.  All products can also be purchased from her personal online website at cecekent.com.
