Trailblazing leaders creating waves in fashion, beauty and tech recognized in the honors list
New York, New York — Sept. 11, 2017 —Perfect Corp.is excited to announce that founder and CEO, Alice Chang is an honoree on the first-ever Glossy 50 list, recognizing the leaders who are transforming fashion, luxury, beauty and tech. The Glossy 50 list is the central feature of this quarter’s Digiday magazine, “Big Ideas.” The issue is focusing on big ideas to solve problems facing media and marketing. It is looking at the moonshots, dreams and proposals for re-defining media and marketing into delivering higher quality, more effective and result in a better informed - and entertained - culture.
“To say the fashion, luxury and beauty industries are evolving would be an understatement; it’s more like they’re being turned on their heads,” says Jill Manoff, editor-in-chief of Glossy. “As competition heats up, brands and retailers are finding ways to differentiate, innovate and connect with customers. Those driving these strategies are the people we’re calling the Glossy 50.”
“It is a true privilege and honor to be recognized as a leader who contributes to re-shaping the beauty and tech industry,” says Perfect Corp. founder and CEO, Alice Chang. “At Perfect Corp., we have revolutionized the consumer beauty experience through YouCam Makeup’s leading AR technologies in a way people have never imagined before. We continue to innovate and bring forth new game changing technologies to provide a complete and integrated beauty experience to consumers, cosmetic brands and retailers.”
Alice Chang is one of the first visionaries at the intersection of tech and beauty. She brought her extensive and highly successful experience in technology into this venture, merging high-tech virtual and mobile platforms with her passion for makeup and beauty.
Chang’s vision came to life through the creation of Perfect Corp., a suite of AR beauty apps that includes the award-winning YouCam Makeup, YouCam Perfect, YouCam Nails and YouCam Fun. Leveraging her success in technology, she’s been able to upend and entirely recreate shopping for beauty products both on mobile and in stores—creating a true O2O experience for consumers around the world. She drew inspiration for the YouCam augmented reality apps from her own needs and frustrations as a beauty lover, particularly the process of learning about new products and trying on makeup looks in a quick, efficient, and clean integrated beauty journey.
The Glossy 50 will be honored at the Glossy Forum on October 3rd, 2017 in New York City.
