Episode 06: Kate Morris/Adore Beauty
7 days ago
Kate Morris is the founder and CEO of Adore Beauty, an online cosmetics retailer. The business was founded in 1999, when Morris was working on the cosmetics counter part-time while attending university. While she loved this work, she realised that for many women, the experience of buying makeup at a department store wasn't exactly enjoyable. Rather, she realised that they felt intimidated rather than empowered approaching the makeup counters. Gina had a chat with Kate before the Christmas break to chat about the birth and growth of Adore Beauty, the sale of a stake of the business to Woolworths and buying it back, and supporting women in the Australian startup space.
