- Jessica Richards, Owner & Founder, Shen Beauty

Wright stated, "One of the reasons I started IBE was to help develop a market and need among buyers for brands such as mine, and plan the metamorphosis and next evolution of my skin care line."
Richards said, “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. I love hunting for cool brands and supporting the people behind them."
