Meet Randy Fenoli
Born on a cattle farm in Southern Illinois, Fenoli is the youngest of seven children. Fenoli taught himself how to sew at the early age of 9. Fenoli’s passion for fashion and design lead him to the prestigious Fashion Institute of Technology. While at FIT, Fenoli won a number of awards for design and achievement. Immediately after graduating, Fenoli launched two bridal industry collections: Randy Fenoli for the Diamond Collection and Randy Fenoli for Dressy Creations. Fenoli is the recipient of two DEBI awards (Design Excellence in the Bridal Industry), the most prestigious award for bridal designers.
From 2007-2012 Fenoli worked as Fashion Director at New York’s Kleinfeld Bridal Salon where he would consult with nearly 15,000 brides a year. His main
purpose was to help brides determine what their story, how they wanted to look, what their budget was and help them find the perfect dress.
On Randy to the Rescue, Fenoli travels the country with a semi truck filled with wedding gowns and accessories helping brides find their dream wedding
dress at his ultimate pop up bridal salon. Fenoli selects three lucky brides who have said Yes to their dress and then, with the help of a hairstylist and makeup artist, transforms these brides from head to hem and presents each with a bridal blueprint for her wedding day. With a philosophy that no matter what her size, age or shape, EVERY woman is beautiful, Fenoli seems able to overcome any challenge.
Fenoli has appeared as a guest on many television shows, including, The Today Show, The View, Rachel Ray, Extra, Get Married, and The Martha Stewart Show and served as main correspondent during TLCs Royal Wedding live broadcast and event from Times Square.
Stepping outside of the bridal arena, Fenoli served as a fashion commentator for The Associated Press on the red carpet of the 2010 Academy Awards.
