Less than a decade ago, if you wanted to purchase some stylish workout clothing, you’d most likely head to the store and spend a few hours shopping around for the perfect outfit. Thanks to Kate Hudson, the athleisure community has gone through quite an evolution. Once most well-known for her acting chops and red carpet appearances, she’s added revolutionizing the way women shop for work out clothing to her resume. Her athleisure brand, Fabletics, was started in 2013 and offers women unique, stylish choices for their work out and lounging gear. After the TechStyle Fashion Group reached out to Hudson in partnership, Fabletics was born.
Hudson was the perfect choice for the brand’s face due to her bubbly personality, business mindset, and appeal to women who want to work out in style. In short, she’s authentic. Women can actually picture her wearing her own brand, and her ownership of Fabletics and refreshing honesty is what makes the clothing so popular. In fact, in the face of negative press, Hudson took it upon herself to improve the brand’s customer service to ensure quality and satisfaction. Since then, the company has grown over six hundred percent. Hudson has said that she enjoys being both an actress and businesswoman, and will continue to inject her creativity and art into everything she does.
What makes Fabletics so successful? One of the major factors is the power of the crowd. People like reading testimonials. They want to know what brands worked for other people and why. They trust the opinion of their peers more than they do a celebrity spokesperson, and Fabletics knows that. That’s why they display their online reviews with pride, knowing that consumers will see their four or five star rating and be more likely to make a purchase. Particularly in this tech focused world, customers want convenience at their fingertips (aka on their mobile device). For example: say you’re looking to purchase a pair of workout leggings. If you’re going to conveniently buy them online, you aren’t just going to click on a random pair and hope it works out. You’re going to read reviews and see how different brands stack up. Since Fabletics has such glowing reviews on their website, many women choose to buy from them. It’s that simple. Ultimately, it seems that authenticity, whether it’s provided by Kate Hudson or loyal customers, is what truly drives Fabletic’s success.
Most people are familiar with Whitney Wolfe Herd as the founder of the incredibly popular Bumble dating app. She has recently joined forces with Gwyneth Paltrow, an individual looked up to by many women as a mentor. She is the superstar of Goop, an actress, and soon to host an exclusive Los Angeles event with Whitney Wolf Herd. This is in celebration of the new Bumble Bizz offshoot for careers networking opportunities. It is doubtful anyone is going to have the ability tomeet the two famous women because the affair is reputed to be by invitation only. The buzz has it this affair will resemble the New York dinner and be filled with celebrities.
Bumble Bizz is a part of the original app created for dating, but has a separate section. The launching was on the 2nd of October, provides interesting industries, networking opportunities, and eligible prospects available simply by swiping from the user’s phone. This is networking for women at its best. Although the full utilization of the app is not yet clear due to the short time since it was launched, it is an interesting idea. One of the most exciting features of Bumble Bizz is just like with the original Bumble dating app, all conversations must be initiated by the woman.
Despite the magnificent wedding of Whitney Wolf Herd just a short time ago, she has not missed a trick in rolling out the new Bumble Bizz app. The launch parties she hosted in New York were amazing and included appearance from names including Karlie Kloss, Leandra Medine, Princess Beatrice, Priyanka Chopra, and Kate Hudson. There was even a sensational performance from Fergie. The event in Los Angeles is expected to be just as sensational and Gwyneth Paltrow will be the host. Sara and Erin Foster will be standing right alongside her.
The potential mentees for the Bumble Buzz app already include an all-star lineup of current users. This includes Laura Brown of InStyle, Payal Kadakia, the founder of ClassPass, and Ali Webb, the founder of Drybar. They have already agreed to share their own stories about mentorship. Whitney Wolf Herd stated it was her honor to provide support for these exceptional women. They inspire other women by building their own businesses, and help in the achievement of professional goals. The date for the launch party has not yet been set, so there are a lot of people hoping they end up on the list.
Relationships can be some of the hardest aspects of life. While some people may find themselves in and out of relationships, there are those who seem to have to struggle in order to get even one taste of a relationship. However, the person who is in and out of various relationships is not any more successful than the person who is not in any relationship. For one thing, they are ultimately in the same boat. They did not find anyone that is good match for them. Online dating accounts and dating apps don’t help much either. Fortunately, a dating app developer is making changes in the dating and relationships industry. The name of the developer is Whitney Wolfe.
Whitney Wolfe has created the dating app called Bumble. It has turned out to be a successful app in that it gives women an advantage that the other dating apps don’t. Men are not allowed to be the first one to message women. Instead, the app shows women men that they are matched to and gives them a day to message them. If a woman messages a man, then the man can message the woman. This model has turned out to work well with women and men because women are less likely to have such an overload of messages from desperate men.
Whitney Wolfe has come up with a successful model and plan for her Bumble app. Given that her app has turned out to be a success, she has decided that she can expand it so that it can be useful for other aspects of life. She has then expanded Bumble so that it can help women find friends with BFF, and then she has expanded it so that women can connect with each other for career and business related activities with BIZZ.
Whitney Wolfe has shown that she is very passionate about empowering women. At the same time, she does not want to make men out to be evil. After all, she has seen women with a lot of the traits that men are singled out and stereotyped as having.
The people that have successfully invested in fashion will tell you that it is not as simple as many people imagine it to be. When you are creating new designs and concepts in the marketing of fashion related products, the best you can hope is that when the people you are targeting see the designs, they will be impressed to the point of wanting to follow that work and the many others that you will make after that. This is the hope that Fabletics had when they started their business. Six years down the line, the company feels extremely happy about the strides that they have made so far, and is hoping for bigger and better days.
The company was founded in 2011 by Don Ressler and his partner, Adam Goldenberg. They decide to launch the fashion line after realizing that most people had a really shallow concept of the online shopping model. The issue that they had with most of the online shops that were in existence was the fact that even though the stores were referred to as self-service, it is the retailer that decided the designs and brands that they were going to carry. This simply means that the customer who shopped from these stores did not really choose the design that they wanted, but simply chose from a set of pre-selected items.
They wanted to base the store on the concept of the customer making their custom products. To make this happen, they decided that they would create a store in which the customers could log in, create a design that they wanted, send it to the team and receive a final product that was crafted to their specifications. This is the first difference that started drawing in the consumers.
The innovation that was part of the starting point of the store is one of the things that drew in investors. By the time that the company was hitting their first year in the business, they were starting to attract huge names from the entertainment world. It is their association with Kate Hudson in the creation of stylish, yet affordable active wear that has sent their sales right through the roof. The popularity of the products that are designed by Kate has reached a cult like following and is still growing.
Other people that have endorsed the company include Kimora Lee Simmons and Avril Lavigne. Companies like the Matrix Partners and the Rho Ventures also invested in the company a while back after realizing that it was headed for great success. Currently, most of the following of the products that are sold by the company comes from the Millennials .
The reverse show-rooming technique is one of the concepts that is driving the sales of the company. There was a time when people would go online to look for products and after finding them, they would o shop where the cost was smaller. Fabletics decided to make their online store the central part of their business and the physical store just a part of the entire experience. This is what has gotten them to the point where they are giving Amazon and other giants in the industry a run for their money.
