Shen Beauty Owner and Founder
Known in the industry as 'The Cool Hunter,” fashion stylist and Brooklyn mom Jessica Richards is renowned in the industry for her considerate, relevant curation, and has been featured in the New York Times, Vanity Fair, Interview, Allure, Harper’s Bazaar, The Huffington Post and Goop.
What began as a neighborhood haven for undiscovered, organic lines and exclusive British imports soon started attracting consumers from Manhattan, Europe, Asia and beyond. “I think that fashion and beauty are very much the same - people want something special, they want to feel cool - like they have a gem, and then they tell their friends about it,” she says. “I love hunting for cool brands and supporting the people behind them."
