THE FILE is a space for women to gather, share and connect about the varied and expansive topic that is beauty.  It is a space we can all settle in to and share from a place of truth, vulnerability and a willingness to go-there with ourselves and with each other. We learn about beauty from many different angles, and so we present a form of beauty that has a behind closed doors feel to it; much like the type of raw, real and honest conversations you would have with a close and trusting friend.  We hope this is a place you can all come and feel something different.

With love, Carlie

Founder, Carlie Fowler
