When Amazon is the leader in online sales across a number of popular niches, they usually do not have the time to focus on their competition. Commanding a 20 percent share of sales in the apparel niche is impressive and shouldn’t give Amazon reason to pause, but an active-wear company has been causing quite a stir in the space Amazon is used to dominating. Kate Hudson‘s Fabletics is that company, and to pull in over $250 million in sales in three years is something the competition should be worried about.
Hudson talks about her athleisure brand as a high-quality piece of women’s active-wear that is all about the shopping experience. Hudson says that the secret the success of her company comes down to reverse showrooming and her membership plan. Her customers go to the local mall and visit the Fabletics store, getting to see all the latest women’s workout apparel and try on all the clothing they desire. At the retail stores at the mall, women can get their Fabletics membership, take a Lifestyle Quiz, window-shop, or try everything on in the store. The sales associates are not pushing for sales, so this relaxed atmosphere only adds to the overall shopping experience.
When these same women eventually shop at the Fabletics website, they discover all the items they wore inside the store at the mall is waiting for them on their profile page. Now since these women have tried on the workout apparel and know it fits them perfectly, they are free to shop based on that size without having to worry if it will fit. This is in contrast to the shopping experience at e-commerce sites like eBay or Amazon, because buyers get one piece and usually return it because it doesn’t fit. At Kate Hudson’s Fabletics, the clothing has been worn and these women just want to load up the shopping carts so they can show off the latest workout apparel next time they are at the gym.
Kate Hudson’s Fabletics is a total shopping experience for women, and membership means you also get lower piece pricing, free shipping for all online orders, and even your own shopping assistant. Your assistant uses your quiz answers to pick an item each month you might be interested in. This formula seems to be working, and all the other retailers in this space should start paying close to Kate Hudson’s Fabletics brand.

In a recent interview on CNBC , Adam Goldenberg, CEO of TechStyle, formerly JustFab, discussed his company’s decision to rebrand. Tech Style is a high value, membership driven, personalized online fashion service focused on the most up to date fashion around. This is accomplished through data science.
While successful under the JustFab brand name, the move to rebrand the company was not random. According to Goldenberg, the company is data driven and so are the major decisions that occur within the corporation. Attributing much of the rebranding decision to the lack of understanding some members had of the model, Adam Goldenberg decided to make changes which reflected consumers’ feedback.
Some of the major changes made include making the program an opt in rather than an opt out program which requires members to sign up for the VIP service when they join. Other changes the CEO mentioned were making the options in the model more transparent and easier to understand, and prompting members to visit their account at least once a month to ensure they are still pleased with the options they chose. Flexibility was also added into the model such that members don’t have to opt in every month. Fees are assessed only for those months members intend to shop and opt into the program on rgtadvisors.com. Once all the changes were made, Goldenberg felt a brand name that better reflected the new overall package and was not associated with the outdated model would be more appropriate.
Adam Goldenberg also mentioned that the fashion industry is changing rapidly with technological advances. As a result, collecting data regularly and using it to develop and alter the brand such that it will always meet the desires of the demographic is an important cornerstone in the TechStyle brand. Goldenberg added that the major factors that distinguish TechStyle from its competitors is that they build brands and they build them online first. This compares with other fashion companies that built their brand 15 to 50 years ago and aren’t incorporating the rapid advances that are occurring as the result of the growth of the technology sector.
