Entrepreneur, Founder, Studio10
A serial entrepreneur, Grace Fodor has a long history of achievement across different industry sectors but always with developing and delivering brands at the heart; now with her own cosmetics brand that has ignited a cult frenzy since its launch in March last year.
A brand expert first and foremost, Grace co-founded a ‘marcoms’ and PR agency at the age of 27 which went on to be acquired by global conglomerate, Omnicom, within just five years.
Grace then started a brand consulting firm, and through a research project for Boots it led to her conceiving and co-founding Jemma Kidd Make Up.
With a continued passion for beauty, Grace took the step last year to launch her very own cosmetics line after she felt there was a distinct lack in makeup for women as they age and a real need for a dedicated range. Studio 10 is a highly innovative range of age-correcting, facial contouring and skin perfecting makeup essentials, problem solvers and professional fixes.
Only debuting in March last year, Studio 10 has created a massive ‘buzz’ with instant celebrity, MUA and press fans including India Knight, Sunday Times Style, touting it as ‘genius’. As well as the home market, Studio 10 has recently launched in the US and will be launching on QVC US later this year.
As well as running her own start-up business, Studio10, Grace mentors start-ups, is a guest speaker and was the Beauty Expert on BBC3’s Be Your Own Boss reality TV show. She also appears regularly on QVC.
