Jes Splendid Inc. was born in a cramped, underground Brooklyn studio by a group of bad-ass unemployed full-time festival women in the midst of a global lock-down. Inspired by the celebration of diversity and gender fluidity in New York and the festival community, a bare bones sewing studio was assembled....
to create fashion for the fringe.
Now that New York City is alive again and festival goers are itching to hit the dance floors, JSD is more committed than ever to provide you SPLENDID HUMANS with comfortable, durable, and sustainably designed festival wear. Nothing brings us more joy than seeing you all boogie your hearts out in our custom and off-the-rack pieces. Female-owned but with doors open to everyone, JSD embraces the strength of Girls, Gays, Theys and everything in-between by providing unique looks which allow you mavericks to express yourselves to the fullest!
All of our products are completely customizable and intend to celebrate individuality. Not only are these fits stunning but they're sporty enough to move with you, designed for max comfort to amplify whatever self expression you desire. JSD is fiercely passionate about operating in line with zero-waste lifestyle and slow fashion practices so these handmade products are made for longevity with carefully curated up-cycled design.

Jessica Kenny has over a decade of experience working in corporate fashion as a product developer, sample room manager, and designer. Her true passion was revealed after she began working in the festival industry in 2017, where she was able to align her design experiences in theater and fashion with spatial design for interactive theater installations. Her time spent with this community and attending events inspired her to start JSD and merge her knowledge of exceptional garment construction and design techniques with her love for the theatrical world of music festivals and the eccentric community that attends them.
"The best experiences I've had in life came from saying 'YES!' to things I was scared of”
Question: What was your first festival?
In 2014, I had been living in NYC for 4 years and I didn't have very many friends. A guy I met on an online dating site invited me to attend Electric Zoo, he was working security and said he could sneak me into VIP. Alone and never having been to a music festival before I bought a 1 day GA ticket to Electric Zoo and was introduced to my first EDM festival experience. It was there I made new friends who invited me to my first camping festival the following Memorial Day Weekend. The inaugural Mysteryland USA event took place at the original Woodstock grounds in upstate NY in 2015 and the rest is history.
