WHO IS ROOM SHOP?
Room Shop is a fashion and accessory brand co-owned by husband and wife, Shelly and Dryw. Is that couple goals or what? They are the creators of our super fun headscarves and scrunchies, which are 100% iconic and add so much personality to any outfit. Their designs are super bold and unique, and they say so much about how cool the creators are!
IN THEIR OWN WORDS
- WHO ARE YOU?
Shelly Horst, the co-founder and Design Director of Room Shop.
- WHERE ARE YOU FROM?
I grew up in Kansas and then in my 20’s and 30’s lived in Seattle and Brooklyn before setting in Philadelphia with my husband and co founder, Dryw Scully.
I went to school for graphic design knowing I wanted to be in a creative industry but realizing quickly that I am absolutely not a graphic designer. After graduating I worked for a photo studio as a producer and stylist on a part time basis but learned that I had a knack for styling. Then I got a job as a store visual merchandiser for a fashion brand and ended up working there for the next 13 years in different roles from Regional Merchandiser of the East Coast to Handbag Buyer to Manager of Creative Merchandising on the Trend Forecasting team. I learned a ton during those years about what I loved and didn’t love about the fashion industry and Room Shop is the baby that was born from that!
- WHAT DO YOU DO? (APART FROM YOUR BRAND)
When not working we like to travel upstate New York or to the Shore and experience nature.
