Fabletics – Taking Over The Fashion Retail Space By Storm

Fabletics is a brand that has grown from strength to strength in a very short period. The company started as an innovative venture in an otherwise highly competitive fashion retail space, already dominated by giants like Amazon, but Fabletics managed to stand out with confidence. It is all because how the company made and followed marketing and business strategies, all the right ones and at the right times. First of all, Kate Hudson being one of the co-owners helped the brand get an identity in a market that is highly influenced by modern names and celebrities. Kate Hudson is already a famous Hollywood actress and a fitness role model for many.

 

Secondly, Fabletics has a fantastic subscription model wherein the customers can join as a VIP member and get a lot of perks. Not only the customers would get discounts and invitations to preview sales and other offers from time to time, but the customers would also be able to choose from a personalized collection of athleisure products every month. Fabletics emails all its customers each month, and the VIP members just need to check their email and choose what they like, with the option of skipping any month they want without being charged for their month.

 

The best part is that even though Fabletics is a mainstream athleisure brand, the price range of its products are relatively less and does not cost a bomb, which is the case with all other bigger brands out there.

 

One other reason why Fabletics has been able to make it huge in the fashion retail space is by following the reverse showroom technique. The company through its subscription model and other offers and activities has built a relationship with its customers. It means that the brand is not afraid of opening showrooms anymore, and is already an established brand.

 

In many other cases, customers would just visit showrooms, check out the products and then buy somewhere else, but it is not the case with Fabletics as most of the customers walking into Fabletics’s 18 stores across the country are either already VIP members or are highly interested potential clients.  The companies offer lifestyle quiz at its website, and it is a must for every woman interested in joining Fabletics as a member.

 

George Soros, the Self-Made Billionaire

George Soros is an American Citizen who traces his origin in Hungary and is also one of the richest men in the world today. In 2006, his overall rank was number seventy-one on the billionaire’s list. Presently, his net worth is valued to be more than seven billion dollars, a fortune that he has made from Hedge Funds. Besides, George is a married man and has had the chance to father five children. Soros was born at a time when people from his nationality were getting persecuted. For this reason, he fled Hungary for London. It is in London that he secured employment as a railway porter and waiter; jobs that helped him get enough money to enroll at the London School of Economics. Later on, George got employed as a financier at a merchant bank. Since George was good at saving, he was able to set aside a lot of money that eventually enabled him to set up the Hedge Fund, an organization that has amassed his billions of dollars over the years. Later on, the Hedge Fund faced branding changes into what is known today as the Quantum Fund.

Presently, George is the founder of the Soros Fund Management, an organization that boasts of over thirty billion dollars in assets. Besides being a stout businessman, George Soros also has an interest in politics and philanthropy. When it comes to politics, Mr. Soros provides political donations to Democratic Party candidates, so as to help facilitate their campaigns.

Also, the Open Society Foundation has been instrumental in helping drug addicts’ deal with substance abuse.

Besides, George has also extended his helping hand to migrants and refugees. Since the above groups of individuals are usually financially constrained, George helps stabilize their businesses by offering them financial training and aid. In his view, Soros feels that when minority groups gain assistance to make something meaningful from their lives, then the host countries get to benefit from their productivity. It is only recently that George Soros offered five hundred million dollars to help migrants and refugees make something meaningful out of their lives.
