Curated e-commerce site, Taigan.com, and scenic Florida beach destination, Alys Beach, combine their efforts to showcase a stylish pop-up shopping event, The Style Soiree. Celebrating the soon-to-open ‘Alys Shoppe,’ the event will showcase ten designers from the highly acclaimed online shopping site.
Noted for its award-winning architecture and new urbanist design, Alys Beach is a favorite destination among sophisticated travelers. Recognizing similarities within the Taigan audience and level of aesthetic, the Director of Retail for Alys Beach, Megan Trent, asked Taigan to partner in the debut event for the Alys Shoppe, The Style Soiree.
