Change won’t happen unless we work in tandem to achieve this goal.”
Co-Founder Herning added: “The next iteration of beauty retail involves authentic allyship. Thirteen Lune is a retail platform that is redefining inclusive beauty and speaking to all audiences to invite allyship in its truest form.”
