TaShema Richards Creator and Designer of Ambrosia Jeen was born and raised in Hartford CT and found a passion for sewing in high school. Her first major garment was designing and creating her prom gown from the training she received in a sewing class while in her senior year. Over the years she lost touch with the sewing machine, however in 2013 a small request for a tutu made her dust off her old machine.
She founded Ambrosia Jeen in 2018 after dissolving her former company Storkcloud Designs.
If you ask her what type of designs she specializes in the answer will be. “I just love to create” I like to use a variety of different fabrics and embellishments. I don’t fit into one category. One day I may feel like making dresses and another jackets or accessories. I really love working with kids and seeing their smiles light up or their confidence boosted after wearing my designs. To me it’s about giving the child something they can look back on and remember.
She currently resides in Connecticut with her husband and daughter.
