Lancôme was started in 1935 by Armand Petitjean in France. Armand wanted to create beauty products that showcased French elegance around the world. So it looks like his plan worked. He showed his fragances at the World’s Fair in Brussels, and they were a hit. So Lancôme is actually an arm or division of L’Oreal now and has been since 1964. Armand’s idea has employed 100’s and 1000’s of models, fashion designers, make up artists, photographers, and creative people. Well thank you Armand for your contribution to society and the world.

I was really impressed with the history of Zara. Zara is a retail store that was founded in 1975 by Amancio Ortega and Rosalía Mera. Zara doesn’t do any zero advertising. Zeeerrrrrro. They use what money they have to open a new store. Zara doesn’t send all of their clothing to sweat shops overseas, a great deal of their products are made in the country where they reside. Zara can change a product or fashion design within two weeks. They can come up with a product from concept to in the store in around 5 weeks….which is a month to and a week. If a product doesn’t sell within a few weeks they can it and bring out another product. Crazy, this company is. They broke all the rules especially in the fashion world, yet there extremely successful. So I guess what it all comes down to is believe. Well enjoy reading the History of Zara. Click the Link.
