Glossier boosts its grant program amid Black beauty brand closures
Two Black-owned beauty brands that received $50,000 grants from Glossier in 2021 — The Established and Ceylon — are closing due to financial struggles. In response to the difficult financial landscape for Black-owned beauty brands, Glossier is providing $100,000 in funding to one of its past grantees to support a brand through its next phase of growth. The Glossier Grant Program that also awards $50,000 to four emerging brands is open now and closes on June 1.

Is Substack the new specialty store?
Designers are increasingly using the personal site, blog and email newsletter platform Substack to directly reach their consumers. Christina Loff, head of lifestyle partnerships at Substack, told Vogue Business that Substack has seen total subscriptions in the fashion and beauty category grow 80% year-on-year. For some designers like Jane Herman who founded The Only Jane, Substack is becoming the new specialty store. “People ask me for one place to go to try on all the best jeans and I don’t know where to tell them. Retail stores are closing,” Herman told Vogue Business. “But shopping on Substack is similar to what the retail experience has historically been, with editors showing you all the best clothes from different brands and then some people that worked at the store would also make things too.” {Vogue Business/paywalled}
