Kate Hudson is not only a fine actress and fashion icon but a smart businesswoman on poshmark.com. According to a recent interview with Marie Claire magazine, the star opened up about her venture into the atheisure wear trend and the amazing success the young company has achieved already.
ICYMI, Fabletics just celebrated its third anniversary and operates at an annual revenue rate of $250 million. Those are pretty incredible numbers, especially for an online subscription fashion retailer. Getting shoppers to become VIP members is not always easy to maintain for any e-commerce brand, but Fabletics isn’t like all the others. Fabletics boasts a global community of more than one million VIP members, and they all look up to Kate Hudson for fitness inspiration.
Fabletics offers shoppers brightly colored and patterned high performance, on-trend active wear at an accessible price point. Kate Hudson founded the brand with two successful online branding experts, Adam Goldenberg and Don Ressler. The trio see the huge potential in e-commerce, but Kate Hudson tells Marie Claire that the pressure is on her, because of her star power and being one of the co-founders of an L.A.-based start-up company:
“”When you are a celebrity, you’re under a microscope,” Kate Hudson explained on mysubscriptionaddiction.com. “You have to be so much more on top of things. We have 400 employees, we have 1,000 customer service, we’re a very big company. As the company grows, it’s just the bigger it gets, the more challenging things get sometimes….”
Kate Hudson believes in Fabletics’ philosophy of “Live your passion.” Her mission is to inspire more women to live a healthy lifestyle and get moving, whether that’s a walk around the block or running a mini marathon. She’s also proud of the brand’s inclusive aspect, with most recently branching out into Fabletics extended sizes. Kate Hudson wants all women to feel beautiful in their active wear and admits that companies don’t always make cute clothing for women who are “a bit bigger.” Her brand is changing all of that, and she likes the positive changes happening at Fabletics.
Comfortable, cute, functional and affordable work-out gear defines the Fabletics label. Shoppers can choose from great-looking leggings, tanks, tees, crop tops, yoga pants, swimsuits and adorable athleisure dresses made in the actress’ signature casual chic style.
There are brand new styles to choose from every month, and outfits start at the low price of $15 for new VIP members.
