Virginia mall Tysons Galleria has decided to enlist early blogging success story Bryanboy to help celebrate their 25th anniversary. Bryanboy will be on the premises from 2 to 5pm on Saturday, October 19th for an hour-long trend presentation and an hour-long meet and greet (maybe he'll spend the third hour shopping)? The luxury shopping center is selling tickets to the event on Gilt City, and the cost for getting up close with Bryanboy is going for $50. To be fair, that cost also includes a gift bag, valet parking, refreshments and a chance at a $250 Galleria gift card (that last one is only if you're a Club Member). Oh, and a Q&A with seasoned fashion critic Robin Givhan.
From this listing on the mall's site, it's made clear that the event is also free to the public (first come first serve) but that ticket holders will receive priority seating. If Bryanboy isn't your fave, they're offering the same deal with "social-media guru" Aliza Licht.
