One of the things many people would think about Kate Hudson is that she is a very successful and charismatic celebrity. Another thing they would say about Kate Hudson is that she has a really good sense of style. There is a certain side to Kate Hudson that is very respectable. She has a business savvy and strategic side to her which makes her a role model to people. While many may know her from films like Almost Famous, her latest and perhaps greatest achievement to take note of is her clothing line Fabletics. With Fabletics, she was able to explore her passion for fashion and bring forth products that fill a certain gap in the industry.
One thing that can be said about fashion is that it is one of the creative industries. After all, people that are involved in the fashion industry are creating and selling clothes. There is more to designing clothes than just putting together something that people are going to wear. One has to think about all of the different shapes and ways of putting the clothing together. One has to also think about the different body types and colors in order to put together items that can enhance the appearance of people.
Kate Hudson has taken to the creative industry of fashion and has decided to be creative with her business. One good thing about this creativity is that it has brought forth a business model that works best for a business like Fabletics. This business model is online based and helps people save through paid membership. However, she does not stop there, she also has her company go a few steps above and beyond to show the customers that their opinions and desires matter to the company. One of the ways they do this is by offering them a Lifestyle Quiz when they first sign up.
One of the best aspects of Fabletics is that the company as a whole pays attention to the purchasing behavior of customers and provides products based on the behavior. At the same time, it comes up with some inspiring designs for customers to check out.
Doe Deere, also known as the “Queen of Unicorns“, is one that you will definitely want to keep an eye on. From her ever changing hair color to her bold and daring makeup she provides a honestly beautiful example of the importance of being yourself and never giving up.
Let’s Start at the Very Beginning
In a recent interview, Doe Deere took us through her beginnings. Born in Russia and arrived in US at 17 years old. She always had the flair for business, starting her first job as selling temporary tattoos at the age of 13. She can make anything look good, which is why just by modeling her products, she makes them easy to sell. She attributes her career as a musician to help her develop career and marketing skills. Though that’s not the only thing she picked up as a musician.
Partner in Crime
She also found love. She met her husband while they were both in a band together. Writing songs and collaborating has helped them to learn to work well together. Strong when independent, even stronger together.
When you begin something, you start with the basics. Doe didn’t set out to start a major makeup line. She just couldn’t find the colors of makeup that she yearned for. As fashion “fads” come and go, the popularity roller coasters also. When Doe wanted bright and bold colors, the makeup industry only offered beige and nude. So what would a bright minded, business smart young lady do in that situation? She made her own makeup line! Unknowingly, she wasn’t the only one who was bored with the bland colors. Many girls gravitated towards the unique line of makeup she was creating and popular line Lime Crime was born.
Ray of Golden Hope
Lime Crime was started as a hobby, but now has the aspiration to inspire other young ladies to be themselves. To be able to express themselves freely without the fear of opinions of others. Show the world who you are! Your body is the canvass to tell your story. Doe Deere believes that what we put on our bodies, how we do our hair, and what we put on our face is the ultimate way to express ourselves.

Great things are happening with Fabletics, the online retailer selling women’s athletic wear. In a world where a lot of physical stores are being left in the dust, they are keeping up with what their customers want and delivering it, building their brand over 35% in one year.
Fabletics recognizes that there is a new game being played in retail. With cheaper prices available online, it is harder to keep customers shopping in a physical location or to even stay loyal to an online brand. In the past, having a superior product at a lower price point was enough to keep the customer, but today there is so much competition that even that isn’t enough. Fabletics has a great product at a very accessible price point, but what they offer their customers is a “VIP membership”, something that customers respond to very well.
VIP members are quizzed at the beginning of their membership to find out what their style is, and what kind of workouts they do in a typical week. This helps the stylist to narrow down the possibilities of what they will typically like and to deliver them an outfit or athletic wear suggestions each month. The yoga bunny who likes strappy fashion forward details might receive a suggestion for a cropped yoga pant as the weather is getting warmer with a long sleeved shirt that has strappy details down the arms. The next month she may receive a yoga short with a strappy back tank top, and the colors of the outfits may work well when they are mixed and matched together. This personalized service cuts down on shopping and browsing time, and by delivering the less expensive but on trend outfit right to her Fabletics is helping to streamline her life, making the service as valuable as the product.
As physical stores are dropping left and right, Fabletics is opening new physical store locations, but only after they had established success with their VIP members online. Most of the visitors to the store are already members, coming in to experience the store as another branch of the Fabletics experience. She is coming in to see what new clothing styles are being offered that are not available online, so she can add to her existing wardrobe. She wants to see the new limited edition athleisure outfits that she might be able to wear out on her next girls night or on vacation.
The stores are able to provide exactly what she wants in much the same way that the VIP membership streamlines the decision making process. The data science pulled from the website is able to determine what people in the local area are shopping for, delivering to them the styles that people living in that region like. The Honolulu store is going to have styles that have already been proven to appeal to the Hawaiian customer, and will bring them more of what they like, helping them to satisfy customers and reach their sales goals.
