Jeffrey Kalinsky, who is currently the director of designer merchandising at Nordstrom's as well as the owner of the popular boutiques, Jeffrey's, Bob Ellis Atlanta and Jeffrey's New York. Horton's style awareness was heightened while working along side Jeffrey's buyer, Jim Whitlow. Eventually, Horton moved on to pursue her own career as an accessory designer. Her passion for fashion and love of the arts inspired her to take a chance and branch off on her own. Horton began conceptualizing and designing original pieces, making jewelry for herself and friends which eventually evolved into her making handbags. Stylists began taking notice and requesting Horton's designs, using them on-set for photo shoots and red carpet events. "I was just having fun in the beginning ... . all of a sudden everybody was calling for a certain bag or wanted a new piece of jewelry for upcoming events and photo shoots!" says Horton of the unexpected reaction.

In spring of 2006 Kelly Horton Launched Madison Kelly NYC, a designer label of handcrafted handbags. The collection consisted of unique contemporary pieces. The handbags stood out with their creative design structure, various textures and vibrant colors. The designs are edgy originals with functional simplicity of a great handbag. For fall 2009 Horton decided to redefine the traditional handbag and push the envelope with oversized bags with non-traditional dimensions, custom hardware and exotic skins.
