jennie mcguirk & betsy winchell
Jennie McGuirk and Betsy Winchell, met in 2010 while working together in the Los Angeles fashion industry. As well as recognizing their award-winning power as a creative team, they bonded over their mutual love of conscious consumerism, creative problem solving and inspiring people. Thus Brilliant Collective was born.
British Creative Director & Design Strategist, Jennie, began writing for the ethical fashion world in 2011 and is a passionate advocate of sustainable design thinking. She has long embraced fashion as a vehicle for self-expression and has a natural desire to place the human experience at the heart of all she creates.
Betsy's formative years were spent between Washington D.C. and Montana with a camera in her hand. The diversity of her experiences helped her learn how to adapt to different kinds of people with different ways of life. Her work is a fusion of both documentary and lifestyle photography. She likes to move with her subjects, seeing things from their perspective, experiencing and visiting different ways of being. She has a gifted way of understanding her subjects and capturing their essence.
