The new beauty floor is the latest step in the New York flagship’s Grand Renovation. Saks redefined the department store concept with the revolutionary migration of Beauty from the main floor to the second floor. The Saks Store Planning and Design team, in collaboration with Gensler, spearheaded the design focusing on opening up the space, creating broad sightlines across the floor and modernizing traditional finishes that complement the brand’s heritage. The team used custom agglomerate white stone flooring from Italy throughout and restored original windows facing Fifth Avenue, 49th Street, and 50th Street, allowing natural light to the floor and north and south facing views of the city.

Earlier this year, Dion announced her return on the 12-year anniversary of her first performance in The Colosseum, when she opened the venue on March 25, 2003. When her first show A New Dayopened, it went on to not only become one of the most successful shows in Las Vegas but also redefined the entertainment industry; Dion would go on to become the first artist at the height of her career to stop touring and invite fans to come to her instead. By the time the show closed on Dec. 15, 2007, more than three million fans spanning all seven continents and 138 countries had seen the show.
