Kendra Scott is a fashion-lifestyle brand of big dreams, colorful confidence, and inspired design. Founded on family, fashion, and philanthropy, Kendra Scott believes that its employees and customers are the heart and soul of its brand and that giving back is the truest form of success. Kendra Scott’s culture puts family first, constantly pushes the boundaries of fashion and design, and authentically values giving back and making a difference in the community. Kendra Scott started her eponymous jewelry company in her spare bedroom with $500 from her bank account in 2002. She was on leave from work because she was pregnant with her first son and her doctors put her on bed rest. Scott had always enjoyed making jewelry for friends as a passion project and began designing a collection with her newfound time. Although she had previously started a business that shut down, she was resilient and determined to turn her love of jewelry into a business with a philanthropic mission. At first, she went door-to-door selling pieces from her first collection to local Austin boutiques with her young son by her side. In 2017, the company hosted more than 10,000 Kendra Gives Back events across all of their stores, raising money for local causes and donated more than 75,000 pieces of jewelry. 

Spotted Fashion Group creates an environment where networking & conversation come naturally. As an inclusive community-based platform, we focus on empowering confidence in both style & self. Through REAL conversations with female entrepreneurs in the fashion and beauty industry, Jessica hopes to break down the barriers of the fashion industry through storytelling. Our goal is that you walk away a bit more confident & perhaps with a new friend. In 2018, Jessica Kliwinski founded Spotted Fashion Group inspired by the simple notion behind the power of confidence. With +7 years of experience in the fashion industry, Jessica created her platform to share information. She has moderated multiple events including her own NYFW event in 2019 raising over +$500 in benefit of GC4W. Currently, Jessica is moderating weekly “Virtual Spotlights” highlighting various entrepreneurs as seen on her platform Spotted Fashion Group.
