She shows regularly in New York at the Larissa Goldston Gallery.... Read More

Then we stumbled upon Jennifer Behr’s designs and thought: “Why not put the flair in the hair?” Jennifer Behr introduced her eponymous collection of distinctive hair accessories in 2005. Since then, her collections... Read More
