Dawn was born and raised in the Italian capital of the USA - Cranston, R.I. She was the middle child of three, but her extended family was always around because they all lived within 5 minutes of each other. Spending so much time with grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, helped to shape her traditions, beliefs, and her tendency to yell when speaking.
Dawn was itching to spread her wings & decided to leave the family nest (much to their horror). She headed NYC’s Fashion Institute of Technology to study fashion design. She loved the hustle & bustle of city life so much that she stayed there after graduating.
Dawn has done everything from costume design for bodybuilders, Indie films & theater to working as a fashion stylist. She has helped plan weddings & events. She studied acting, working on soaps and off-off Broadway shows.
Her focus shifted within the last couple of years. She wanted to take her passion for decorating, organizing, event planning & fashion - all things lifestyle and turn it into a business. Dawn Falcone Lifestyles LLC was launched in 2005.
She lives in NYC with her beautiful son, Leonardo, and husband Tom, a true renaissance man. He enjoys all of Dawn's creativity, especially her pasta sauce.
