Live Episode! Glossier with Emily Weiss In 2010, Emily Weiss, while working as a fashion assistant at Vogue, launched a beauty blog called Into The Gloss. Her blog quickly gained a dedicated following of readers who were captivated by its intimate insights into the beauty routines of style influencers. Over the years, Emily recognized her readers' desire for a beauty brand that would directly engage with them and cater to their needs. Despite lacking prior business experience, she successfully garnered investor support and collaborated with a skilled chemist to create Glossier, a line of beauty and skincare products that prioritize simplicity. Remarkably, just four years after its inception, Glossier is now estimated to be valued at $400 million. This story was recorded live in New York City.
