Our favourite beauty destination, Sephora has opened it’s newest and largest Canadian store in Vancouver. The spectacular 8,600 square feet store front located on Robson Street contains the most innovative and immersive beauty experiences, featuring more than 200 colour, skincare, fragrance and haircare brands.
We attended the lavish launch party last week and were greeted at the entrance by waiters carrying trays of crisp Moet and delicious appetizers. The room was packed with excited media and industry guests taking in the massive space. We were immediately impressed by the high ceilings and beautifully curated merchandise.
Super model Coco Rocha was in Vancouver to celebrate the launch of Sephora Robson. We had the chance to chat with Coco with our friends from Style Republic Magazine about her visit to her home town of Vancouver.
“The last time I was in Vancouver was two years ago; my mom moved out of the city which would be why I’d come and visit to begin with. I have some great friends here, but if you have to choose between visiting your friends and your family, you go with your family. My mom moved to Toronto, so when Sephora said would you like to come to the store opening in Vancouver I said, “Yes!”
“The Sephora team is made up of the sweetest, kindest people. This location is the biggest store in Canada. Usually the “biggest stores” always open in Toronto first, or Montreal. This location contains exclusives like the VIB Room, a skin studio… I’m very happy and excited for Vancouver to prove to Sephora that just like any other city out there, it’s only wishing and wanting these sorts of exclusives to be here.” – Coco Rocha
Alexandra Richards kept the party going Djing a wicked set from the VIB Rouge studio, located on the mezzanine. This in-store studio will offer beauty and skincare services to Sephora Beauty Insider Rouge clients free of charge in this private, relaxed environment overlooking the store.Another notable attendee was Lev Glazman, founder of FRESH. Fresh is a leading beauty brand with a full line of lifestyle products spanning fragrance, skincare, bodycare, makeup, haircare, and home. Our favourite current products include their Black Tea eye concealer, their rose face masks and of course, the heavenly lip treatments.
