The Indie Beauty Expo (IBE) opened yesterday at Pier 36 on South Street, just off the FDR Drive -- and it was bigger than ever this year, with 240 brand exhibitors. The event runs through this evening.
IBE was founded to support the growth and success of indie beauty brands -- and the entrepreneurs behind them. The show debuted in NYC in 2015 -- and has since expanded to Los Angeles, Dallas, and London. It was founded by celebrity esthetician, Jillian Wright, and entrepreneur, Nader Naeymi-Rad.
Stay tuned for more coverage of the event -- and check out a sneak peek at the show floor in the video below.
In case you missed it, IBE's co-founder Jillian Wright told Beauty Packaging about 5 packaging trends from IBE NY 2018.
