Have you ever wondered who owns what?  I did, so I did some research & compiled a list on the top Luxury Brand Fashion labels; LOUIS VUITTON, CHANEL, CHRISTIAN DIOR, GUCCI, just to name a few. I also listed some of the major Beauty & Cosmetic Labels; Lancome, Estee Lauder, MAC, etc. as well as retail stores; Neiman Marcus, Saks, Macys, Victoria's Secret etc.  

All the info is from March 08 via the internet & Wikipedia, compiled of the most well known labels & designers.  I have no problem with anyone sharing or reposting this info, but please give credit where credit is due: me the author ***jerseyjuicy***
