Here's a look at the Indie Beauty Expo, which took place on August 27, 2015 at the Altman Building in NYC. The expo was open to trade and press during the day, and opened up to consumers to shop in the evening. For all attendees, it was a great way to discover independent beauty brands and learn more about their product offering.
There were a number of beauty brands I was already familiar with such as Lift Lab, Tata Harper, Tracie Martyn, Soapwalla, Sprayology, Juara, VENeffect, Kahina Giving Beauty and LVX. Innersense, Phia Lab, Osmia, Unwash, Slip, Privai, Flynn & King, Trilogy, Svelta, Java and Farmaesthetics were among new finds for me. I'm looking forward to exploring and sampling new products and building relationships with beauty brands.
