Fabletics and Kate Hudson Taking Amazon by Storm

The internet fashion world is currently very popular when it comes to internet shoppers and Amazon currently is in control of about twenty percent of the world wide web’s fashion industry. You might be surprised by this statistic but the reality is that you can find almost any fashion brand on the internet and with very competitive price points. For upcoming fashion brands, there needs to be something unique that sets them apart from other brands that are gaining popularity. Actress Kate Hudson took the athletic-wear world by storm a few years ago with her Fabletics brand. Based on a subscription-service business model, Fabletics generated $250 million in profits during the first three years that it was functioning. Fabletics is taking Amazon and other online retailers by storm thanks to its unique concept. In addition to an online subscription, you can also stop into any Fabletics store (there are a number of them across the United States, including Hawaii). Your in-person shopping experience ties to your online account, making shopping for new clothing items so much easier and affordable.


Active Wear Clothing

Working out and staying physically fit has always been something that people like to do to look their best and feel good about themselves. These days however, active wear has become its own fashion trend in a sense. People no longer use this clothing to work out at the gym or take a yoga class, but people are wearing this genre of clothing for everyday use as they run errands, take care of their families and relax. Very versatile and practical, Fabletics clothing and other similar brands are providing comfort and functionality to their consumers.


If you are someone who likes new athletic wear that is affordable and updated, then you may want to consider trying out Fabletics and their reverse showroom concept. You can sign up online or stop into a store that is in your local area. Also, feel free to try out the Lifestyle Quiz on the Fabletics website to find out what kind of gear would work best for you and your active lifestyle. Shopping online for clothing has always been easy and convenient but now you can really simplify the shopping process even more and make it easier than ever to look good whether you are working out at the gym or just chasing around after your kids each day. Fabletics and Kate Hudson have changed the game.

Moving and Travel Shopping with Kim Dao

On this video produced by youtuber Kim Dao, Kim explains that she is moving from her current home in Japan to the middle of Tokyo. She is also preparing for a trip to Denmark because her grandmother has recently passed away. In her video, Kim Dao is in the process of moving.


In her video, Kim Dao first talks about her experience with her grandmother passing away, and that she had to go to Denmark for a week for her funeral. Unfortunately for her though, she had shipped many of her winter clothes to Australia so she didn’t have any warm clothes available for her trip. As a result, she ended up doing some shopping to prepare.


Kim Dao showed some of the clothes that she recently bought. First, she showed some outfits that she bought from Cecil McBee, to include a spring dress, a skirt/sweater outfit, a Heattech brand turtleneck, a black top and another grey top of the same style, a flower top, and some pink pants.

Christopher Burch: Combining Fashion And Technology To Benefit The Masses

The fashion and technological industries have seen a variety of changes over the decades. The journey that has seen them grow together is a fascinating one. In the 70 and 80s boom boxes with dual cassette decks were popular for taking your music with you. They were replaced by the Walkman and later the iPod which were smaller, offered a more personal experience and the technology was considered fashionable. Today there’s a similar synthesis taking place with fashion and technology. People like Dutch fashion designer Anouk Wipprecht are marrying fashion and technology and produced drink-making and self-painting dresses called the DareDroid and Pseudomorphs.


Many people are using fashion to protect people. They’ve created airbags for cyclists, Frontline Gloves to help firefighters better communicate while inside burning buildings, jackets and t-shirts out of recycled bicycle inner tubes and used recycled radiator copper to create a large gown. Others are transforming the kinetic energy generated by people’s movement into electrical energy to power watches, cell phones and other devices. Google Glass technology has made wearing glasses cool and there are many other ways technology and fashion can grow together and offer benefits to each other and the people that use them.


Christopher Burch is an entrepreneur that invests in a number of industries for almost four decades. The Burch Creative Capital founder and CEO, he has helped luxury brands like Voss Water, Poppin, and Faena Hotel + Universe to incorporate technology into their products. A former The Continuum Group and Guggenheim Capital board member, Burch began his entrepreneurial career while an undergraduate at Ithaca College. He invested $2,000 to found Eagle’s Eye apparel and sold the company to the Swire Group for $165 million.


Part of the reason for Burch’s success is his skill in finding the nexus between implementation and innovation. He also has an innate understanding of consumer behavior. Plus he has experience using direct-to-consumer channels and superior sourcing infrastructure.
