“Among these exceptional entrepreneurs, one name shines brightly – Sophia Rizzo of Glitter Girl. At just 16 years old, Sophia stands out as the youngest nominee and winner in a field where competitors have 20 years more experience than her. This achievement is nothing short of monumental and serves as a testament to her extraordinary journey.”


Glitter Girl was launched in 2016 by a (then) 9-year-old Aussie girl with a love of all things sparky who dared to dream up a brand that was truly inspiring and magical.

With the goal of sparking joy, providing inspiration, and encouraging creativity while being environmentally mindful, Glitter Girl created a range of ethically sourced and eco-friendly make-up and glitter products for all sparkle lovers.

In a few short years, with the help of family, the Glitter Girl brand has blossomed into a multi-faceted business supplying loose eco glitter, vegan and cruelty free make-up and sparkly accessories to customers all around the world and more than 200 retail stockists across Australia and New Zealand. 

The Glitter Girl ‘Wearable happiness’ fashion range was launched in 2021. As with all her products, Glitter Girl only works with factory partners that uphold sustainable and ethical practices and have globally recognised certifications to ensure Glitter Girl products are made with respect for the environment and in ethical working conditions.
