The ultimate retreat for high end influencers, media, and shamelessly chic fashionistas came back for another full day of fashion, tech, beauty, and lifestyle on Tuesday, February 16th, 2016. The Experience was hosted at Bennett Media Studio with our friends at AlleyWatch as our resident media sponsor.  Despite the rain, we kicked off our 2106 event series with some great quest guests including Brandon Liberati and Craig Ramsay of Bravo TV’s Newlyweds (pictured below). Here’s a quick recap of some of the amazing brands we showcased.
