NUORI DESTINATIONS: IOANA, FOUNDER OF BEAUTY BY KROONEN
Ideally located in the upscale Sablon district of Brussels, Beauty by Kroonen is a mecca for all beauty lovers. You immediately feel welcome stepping into the luminous space with a charming vintage feel on the street level of a 1900s house. Offering a warm atmosphere and service, this is a “feel good” place where you can come to see, touch, feel and talk about fragrances, make-up, skin care and everything involving beauty. The store’s focus is niche-only brands: exclusive fragrances, stand-out skin-care and make-up as well as indulging bath & body treats, hair care and exclusive beauty accessories.
Beauty by Kroonen was founded in 2010 by Ioana who has a marketing, innovation and project management background. Prior to opening her own store, Ioana worked for multinational companies in the FMCG sector and was always very interested in beauty products. Ioana created the store concept, and together with her architect brother, designed the space.
