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

Carlie Fowler Founded THE FILE in 2015 with a very simple intention; to create a beauty site that felt different. After working in the beauty and fashion industries for over 15 years in global brand and communications roles, she wanted to bring a very real, honest, embracing and nurturing conversation to the realm of beauty, bringing together a community of women who felt like they weren’t been spoken to in a way that honoured who they truly were.

In August 2021, Carlie launched an evolution of the original platform, with  a new design and additional features designed to simplify the way we search for like-minded  beauty advice. But mostly, the new site was designed to further amplify a message of real beauty, for every woman.
