History of Sephora
The Sephora chain of beauty stores has become a household name – especially among twenty-something ladies looking for the next best cosmetic product.
How did it begin? Well, it all started in France in 1969. They now have more than 750 stores in 21 countries around the world. They carry hundreds of brands, including their own Sephora Brand – mid priced, good quality products.
The chain was acquired by Paris-based conglomerate LVMH (Moët Hennessy.Louis Vuitton), in 1997. LVMH is a world leader in luxury products, who owns everything from Marc Jacobs himself and Moet champagne, to Benefit Cosmetics.
