  • Sephora is one of the most renowned makeup stores that through its quality service and extensive variety of products has earned worldwide recognition opening over 280 stores in the US alone. Its iconic black and white palette and repetitive monochromatic stripes have become a classic signature that stands out anywhere a Sephora store is located. The brand itself, exemplifies luxury, class, and most of all innovative interactive service.

    The PAVE’s Student Design Competition is based on designing a pop-up store that not only represents the client’s elegant image, but also provides for a practical and functional space integrating the use of modular systems that fit into any standard 1,000 sp. ft. spatial configuration. The store design planning category, challenges the student to design a 1,000 sq. ft. space that speaks the clients language and offers the experience of the makeup retail without the permanency of the complete Sephora store.
