In 2021, we felt it was important to have a moment of joy with our clients and we’ve worked hard to recreate the special SEPHORiA environment our clients know and love, by delivering an unmatched virtual experience that they can enjoy free, from anywhere. We look forward to welcoming back clients into the (virtual) world of SEPHORiA.”
