Fabletics Stands Out From the Crowd

Published / by TheHI

Amazon currently controls about 20% of the fashion market, so succeeding has been no small feat for Kate Hudson’s Fabletics company. In fact, Fabletics has not only succeeded but has grown to be worth $250 million in just three years.


Fabletics has become so successful because it is in tune with what the customer really wants and uses a subscription to sell trendy clothing to its customers. Throw in convenience with a membership and aspiration clothing collections and you have a winning mix.



High value brands have traditionally been though of as items that defined by the quality and price or even services, but in today’s market, brand recognition, customer service, and exclusive design is what customers are seeking out these days.


Fabletics plans to open additional physical stores in Florida, California, Hawaii, and Illinois. Their membership model makes it possible for the company to offer service that is personalized and trendy for about half the price of its competitors.


Fabletics is using reverse showrooming and has avoided the usual pop-up store route and has instead built relationships and gotten to know the local markets. 30% to 50% of the customers that walk through the doors of their stores are already members and about 25% become subscription members.


Hudson has used many strategies in order to become so successful. First off, Hudson designs active wear for every shape and size. This helps to keep the market open to everyone and doesn’t exclude anyone form living a more healthy lifestyle, which is what Hudson is trying to do through her active wear clothing line. The sizes of her clothing range form XXS to 3X.


Hudson also stays very hands on, so she can keep an eye on what is selling and what isn’t selling. She review sales every week and believe that it is important to be creative with marketing and design in order to run a successful company.


When a new member becomes a part of the Fabletics team, they have to take a Personality Quiz, which really helps to not only get personalized service, but it also gives Fabletics a good idea of what the customer wants.


Inspired by her mother, Goldie Hawn, Hudson has a motto to “live your passion” and to focus on what is the most important. She also believes that it is very important to keep that in perspective because it will make you fearless.

Julia Jackson – An Inspiring Passion for Wine

Published / by TheHI

Julia Jackson, daughter of the late Jess Jackson and spokesperson for Jackson Family Wines, spent her childhood immersed in the daily goings of her family’s wine business. It’s no surprise that she developed an interest in the business early on or that she would become an integral part of Jackson Family Wines.

After receiving her Bachelors Degree at Scripps College, Jackson went on to attend Stanford Summer Institute of General Management. She now works with the international sales team, utilizing her expertise and enthusiasm for the wine business in the promotion and expansion of her family’s legacy. At a comparative wine tasting of Vérité, one of company’s most exceptional Sonoma County wines, Jackson suggested that, while Sonoma is known for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, Jackson Family Wines believe that it is the best place for Cabernet. This unique perception proved to be quite valuable when Vérité was preferred over two of Napa’s more famous Cabernets.

Julia works with many of her family members, including her mother, Barbara Banke, who is now chairman and proprietor of Jackson Family Wines and who Jackson considers a role-model for herself. Watching her mother thrive in a male-dominated industry may have added to Jackson’s motivation to found Cambria Seeds of Empowerment in 2014. Seeds of Empowerment is a grantmaking program that honors women leaders and supports charitable organizations by awarding $100,000 to outstanding non-profit organizations annually. The goal is recognize and encourage not only exceptional women leaders but also those who have overcome adversity and seek to empower others.

Jackson brings both passion and acumen to her work within the wine industry and spreads inspiration through Seeds of Empowerment. She plans to remain in business with her family and carry on the legacy her father began.

Honey Birdette Sees Large Growth In USA Sales

Published / by TheHI

Australian based lingerie and accessory outfit company, Honey Birdette has revealed plans for massive overseas expansion. The brand was created in 2006 by its founder and current creative director, Eloise Monaghan. She was discussing the lack of high quality lingerie and bedroom accessories with a friend at a restaurant at the time. After the conversation ended, Monaghan said that the idea for Honey Birdette was created to provide luxury lingerie and accessories for women such as herself.

Honey Birdette has taken off since its inception in 2006. The lingerie brand has 55 stores all over Australia. That is pretty amazing considering the brand is only 11 years old. In 2016, Honey Birdette saw its first ever store expansion abroad with three openings in the United Kingdom. These were in the shopping centers of London, Westfield and Leeds. This year thanks to strong sales and demand, Honey Birditte is hoping to open up an additional 10 stores in the UK in places such as Liverpool and Newcastle. By the end of 2018, Honey Birdette says it feels confident that it can open up to 40 stores in the British market, which shows that the company is pursuing an aggressive growth strategy.

In the USA meanwhile, the Australian luxury lingerie and accessory brand is also looking to establish a foothold. Online sales have surged by over 370% over the last year. Honey Birdette has no physical stores in the USA. It is updating its online website for its American customers though. The new site should make shopping around more easy. The company also revealed it will now be offering faster shipping, an easier return process and free shipping for any order that is above $50. The large growth in online sales from the USA has made Honey Birdette consider entering the American market, where it will have to compete against the likes of Victoria’s Secret.
