KATE HUDSON’S FABLETICS SOARING ABOVE OTHER BRANDS

Kate Hudson is a well-known Hollywood actress and her Fabletics activewear brand is now becoming a fashion trend. Fabletics is a growing fashion wear brand that has managed to reach great heights in only three years. The $250 million business has managed to thrive despite Amazon’s domineering presence in the e-commerce business.

 

Fabletics can attribute most of its success to strategic positioning, unique designs, fashion brand membership, brand recognition, customer experience, gamification elements and last mile service.

 

The high-end athleisure brand has likened itself to companies such as Warby Parker and Apple. Although Fabletics started out online it has branched out and it now has 18 physical stores situated in Illinois, California, Hawaii, and Florida. The fashion brand plans on opening other stores in sixteen other locations.

 

Fabletics and the reverse showrooming concept

 

Although many fashion brands have highly discouraged the reverse showrooming concept, Fabletics encourages it as a strong point in their marketing strategy. Let’s face it most people just browse offline and find out the best trends before going to buy cheaper versions in others stores.

 

However, this doesn’t happen with Fabletics as most members purchase online before they walk into the stores. The friendly and convenient method of buying items ensures that the consumer already knows what they are looking for before shopping.

 

Fabletics, General Manager recently revealed that it’s easier to purchase items that you are already familiar with. Gregg Throgmartin is a huge advocate of the brand’s personalized service membership service. So when a consumer shops and tries a certain item it is reflected in the shopping cart online.
