Erica Bell and Katie Finnegan are the co-founders of Hukkster. They met in 2007 while waist-high digging through polo shirts and seersucker shorts in the sample closet at J.Crew. Working side by side as merchandisers, the duo formed an instant bond over their love for fashion and New York City. Five years later, Katie and Erica traded in their nautical stripes for tailored suits and the hectic lifestyle of management consulting. Lacking free time, the two savvy shoppers began to commiserate over their email inboxes that overflowed with deals and special offers. Katie and Erica were intent on accessing the latest trends at affordable prices, but could not find the time to sort through them all -- so they launched Hukkster to help sophisticated shoppers save time and money. It is their mission to give you back control over your wardrobe and your wallet, helping you access the styles you adore at affordable prices season after season.
