CES 2016: Empowering the Millennial Woman

Refinery29 reaches more Millennial women in the US than any other platform. With this in mind we created the Dreamers' Suite at CES. We designed the space to feature products that spoke to a millennial woman and the dreams she is aspiring towards. In order to do this, Wearable Experiments curated the space with the 5 senses in mind. In order to create meaningful memories, you must attempt to “play” with the senses.

Millennials have matured in an age where seamlessly integrating tech into everyday life is a natural occurrence. Particularly for the millennial woman, these advancements help mobilize her world, shaping everything from the clothes they wear to the food they eat, to the home they create. To this end, the products we curated in the suite spoke to those needs, creating a dream apartment suitable for functionality and style.
