Condé Nast-owned publication Allure is bringing its beauty closet to the Big Apple — Luxury Daily presents news of the inaugural live event exclusively.
Public-facing programming will soon grab the attention of everyday consumers and industry professionals alike as the magazine announces Best of Beauty: The Live Event, an affair taking place at New York City's Chelsea Industrial on Saturday, Oct. 21. Attendees can look forward to editor-curated booths featuring Best of Beauty winners and partners, as Allure leverages 27 years of awards expertise to offer master classes, panels discussions and more.
“At Allure, we take pride in exploring thousands of beauty products each year to share the 'best of the best' with our readers,” said Jessica Cruel, editor in chief at Allure, in a statement.
