Sephora is on a mission to become more inclusive

Sephora has announced a manifesto to become more inclusive. The beauty retailer has unveiled "We Belong to Something Beautiful," a campaign and manifesto that aims to encourage celebrating differences and living fearlessly.

Sephora believes in championing all beauty, living with courage, and standing fearlessly together to celebrate our differences. We will never stop building a community where diversity is expected, self-expression is honored, all are welcome, and you are included,” quotes the retailer’s manifesto.

The campaign will see Sephora publish the manifesto online, in major newspapers across the US and via email. The company is also hosting a nationwide workshop focusing on inclusivity on June 5, for which it will close its US stores, distribution centers and headquarters.

The move comes as the brand prepares to open its new Times Square boutique in the heart of New York. Video clips posted to Sephora’s Instagram account Stories show the colorful ‘We Belong to Something Beautiful’ motto displayed in-store.

Inclusivity has been a major topic of discussion within the beauty industry over the past few years, with countless major brands making a very public effort to increase the diversity of the products they offer. Earlier this month, the skincare brand Obagi snapped up actress Priyanka Chopra to front its new ‘Skinclusion’ initiative, which aims to open up the discussion about the need for inclusion and diversity when it comes to skincare, highlighting awareness of "unconscious biases," while Dove Haircare teamed up with Kelly Rowland in February to launch a single that aimed to boost self-confidence among girls.

Victoria’s Secret or the failure of a conservative positioning?

When the Victoria’s Secret show was cancelled it didn’t come as a surprise. In May, it was reported by The New York Times that the show would no longer be broadcast on network television. “We must evolve and change to grow. With that in mind, we have decided to re-think the traditional Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show". From 2001 to (...)
