Rebecca Hessel Cohen is the founder and designer behind LoveShackFancy, a gorgeous collection of womenswear inspired by Rebecca's love affair "with all things beach, starting with her family's Hamptons home" and growing as the her vision for her wedding dress came to fruition. Later, in 2013, LoveShackFancy launched in stores. The collection has caught the attention of numerous publications, including The New York Times, Cosmopolitan, Elle, Glamour, Hamptons, Refinery29, People Stylewatch, and more. We're absolutely obsessed with her designs: from slip dresses to ruffle dresses, lace tops, mini skirts, and more. Prior to her role as a designer, Rebecca worked as a Senior Fashion and Beauty Editor at Cosmopolitan Magazine. Alongside Rebecca is Dean Isidro, a super-talented photographer and D.i.P dyer, who admits his feet have turned blue from his obsession with indigo dyeing! Dean's gorgeous and extensive photo portfolio, as well as D.i.P. mercantile, can be found on his site, while the behind-the-scenes of his career can be found on his Instagram. We can't get enough of Rebecca and Dean, and we're absolutely certain you should know them!
