EPISODE HIGHLIGHTS

With the Fourth of July holiday nearly upon us, we’re pumped to have Sasha Benz on The Out East Vibes Podcast.

On this episode, we sat down with Sasha to get into the details of how this style icon of Montauk (via Australia) got to where she is today, and where she’s headed next. If you’re in college or just graduated, what this self-made, entrepreneurial powerhouse of a woman has to say about her early days is must-hear perspective you can’t afford to miss. 

And did you have your wedding plans affected by COVID? Wound up having to postpone til next year? Stop what you’re doing, right now, and listen to this episode. On our podcast, Sasha Benz shares her key tips to pulling off an amazing wedding next year, even when there’s double the usual number of weddings happening all around you. More great perspective that’s a must hear.

Finally, we peel back the layers and give you an inside look at the life of this enigmatic tastemaker who’s raising a family and building herself an empire out in Montauk. From her early days in the NYC fashion industry to making the move out east–and with plentiful partying throughout–Sasha spills the tea on the podcast and puts us all in the know on what it means to be Sasha Benz.
