For a company to succeed, it has to fully understand the industry and the market of its choice. As cool as it may seem, the fashion industry is not for the faint of heart. It’s one of the hardest industries to succeed in; especially in its e-commerce market.
With Amazon controlling 20 percent of the fashion e-commerce market, it’s amazing that Kate Hudson’s Fabletics has grown into a $250 million company. Taking on Amazon is no small feat, but she’s doing it. Fabletics combines aspirational fashion with convenience and specialized membership, which is a powerful concoction for success.
Success in today’s economy is no longer as easy as it was in the past. Historically, companies only needed to have good prices and quality goods or services. Today, that combination is no longer a guaranteed success. The modern consumer cares more about things like customer experience, last-mile service, and brand recognition.
Fabletics has certainly fitted all those aspects into its business model. Following the path laid out Apple, Fabletics is going the way of physical stores. The brand also has a huge millennial following, so its physical stores are having no problems fitting into the local markets.
That’s how Fabletics is surviving what other brands get killed by, offline browsing – online shopping. Most consumers these days are loyal to specific brands. Any brand they’re not loyal to, they have no problem browsing their stores but buying elsewhere cheaper. To combat that, Fabletics welcomes browsers with events and other activities.
These events are used to build relationships and get to know the local markets. That close customer-brand relationship is why most people walking through the door are already members, and an additional 25 percent of visitors become members right there in the store.
The premise of Fabletics has always been price. There are a lot of activewear brands out there, but many of them either have high prices or are not fashionable; Fabletics is the best combination of the two. Depending on what they buy, Fabletics members can buy two or three items for the same price as one pair of Lululemon or Beyond Yoga leggings.
The best part aspect of Fabletics is its endless variety of styles. Fabletics has so many outfit combinations, the brand even offers a lifestyle quiz as a way for people to get a peek.

She Is A Proud Vegan
Doe Deere is a strict ethical vegan and everything about her product line reflect this. She understands that, unfortunately, there are many makeup lines using animal products as ingredients. In protest of this cruelty Deere does not allow any animal products in Lime Crime makeup. This isn’t some gimmick she uses to boost sales either. Deere personally donates to nonprofits focusing on helping shelter animals find homes.
She Was One Of The First Web Celebrities
Doe Deere rose to fame during the mid 2000s. It was a time that saw the beginnings of Youtube, Facebook, Twitter, and other major social media websites. She didn’t have any precedents to rely on or copy either. Instead, Doe Deere had to pioneer an entirely new path for herself towards stardom. Once she reached stardom her fan base was large and loyal. This what led to the idea to launch her own makeup line. She knew her fans wanted someone to give them something that represented their own style and interests. From that point on she was an entrepreneur.
She Wants To Encourage Women In Business
As a successful female entrepreneur, Deere had to overcome many serious obstacles in the process of creating her business. She understands how difficult it is for many women to start their own business and she chooses to help them out by teaching young women some of the things that helped her succeed. Right now, Lime Crime is business raking in millions in revenue with a 9 year history. The vast majority of businesses fail within the first 4 years. To reach the position that Deere has and to maintain it for as long as she has is no fluke. She is truly a business prodigy.
Her Business Continues To Grow
The amazing success that Lime Crime has had continues and the brand grows every day. Since she was a small a girl, Deere has wanted to find a way to express her creativity and love of bright colors. With Lime Crime, Doe Deere lives out that dream with her fans. Additionally, her business is an accurate reflection of her values. Lime Crime is vegan, all natural, and empowering. All too often in the world of business young women are forced to compromise and change who they are. Fortunately, Doe Deere is the same person she was when she started her business.
