The rise of the Fabletics brand has been swift since the initial plan for the company was developed by TechStyle founders, Adam Goldenberg and Don Ressler who have been looking for new ways of seeking success in an ever-expanding Online retail market. The decision to bring actress Kate Hudson onboard as a founding partner has paid large dividends for the company but the reliance on customer reviews is also creating a major buzz around a business reported to have revenues totaling $235 million by the close of 2017; Fabletics has become the latest and leading group to build on the success afforded by the excellent reviews the products created for the brand have received from customers.
Since the Online retail sector has grown at a fast rate in the last decade the way shoppers search for their products has evolved to include a new way of getting the best possible options based on the sense of community a brand can build. More than 80 percent of consumers surveyed explained they would trust the word of a reviewer when making purchases as much as they would a recommendation from a loved one or friend. Customer reviews have continued to become a major part of the marketing strategy of Fabletics as four and five-star reviews can result in a higher ranking on search engines where appearing on the first page of a search result is the key to achieving success.
Customer reviews are just one aspect of the marketing work completed by Fabletics which also looks to the brand ambassador and founding partner, Kate Hudson to bring success to this impressive brand. Established in 2013, Hudson came onboard when the group was still in the planning stages and has learned a great deal about building a new company from the ground up; despite admitting her own lack of experience as a businessperson, Hudson has explained she enjoys new areas of success from researching budgets to creating advertising videos to be placed on company created Sites and the actress’ own social media accounts.
As her interest in Fabletics has continued to expand, Kate Hudson has spent a large amount of her time acting as a link between current customers and the latest designers and celebrities to join the Fabletics brand. The decision to partner with singer and actress, Demi Lovato saw Hudson herself introduce the latest brand ambassador and guest designer to the press at a recent Los Angeles-based event.
Kate Hudson was chosen to be part of the Fabletics family because the founders of the company believed her approachable and fun personality made her the perfect fit for the brand they wished to launch. The success already achieved by Fabletics shows the decision to work with the actress daughter of Hollywood icon, Goldie Hawn was a positive one to take for both parties.
The Academy of Art University was founded in 1929 and was established to be a school for advertising art. Until 1951 the school was led by the founder Richard S. Stephens, who also happened to be a magazine editor and a painter. Richard A. Stephens took over for his dad in 1951 and lead the school until 1992 when he was replaced by his daughter, Elisa Stephens. While she held presidency she amazingly was able to take the number of students from 2000 to 18,000 by 2012.
In 2007 The Academy of Art University was able to receive regional accreditation by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges. Along with their other incredible accomplishments, the school has also been able to become a member of the National Association of Schools of Art and Design. In 2016 there was around 7% of the students that were able to complete a four-year degree within the appropriate amount of time. The school amazing accomplishments do not stop there though. The Academy of Art University Automobile Museum is also operated and owned by the Academy of Art University.
On September 9, 2017, the Academy of Art University’s School of Fashion was able to hold their 21st runway showcase. The show was said to be of top interest by many due to the different backgrounds of many of the designers. Many of the designers were coming all the way from China to coastal Maine. This brought tons of interest due to all of the different ideas that were going to be expected to be at the show. This left many of the students panicking for hours as they all got ready for their 15 minutes of fame. The thing that made the students even more nervous was that they were not only showing their pieces in front of other students but also tons of celebrities that had come out that day to see all of their fashion pieces. So one by one each of the students showed what their visions were for the future of fashion and by the end, the show was a complete success for all.
Worldwide Asset eXchange is known as WAX, a decentralized network used for buying and selling in-game items. Its great because WAX will decrease the transaction costs that weren’t available before. The platform is made so that players can exchange items and creates a tokenization. This allows the buyer to keep ownership of their item. The end goal is to have physical assets they can use in the future. There is a big challenge, the system has to make sure that tokens on the block chain are connected to their respective assess. There are also other elements in WAX’s design that try to compensate for this.
To constantly make transactions, token holders need to regulate their transactions to authorize future actions. The exchange process is done with transfer agents that calculate ratings, supervise guilds and regulate the proof of stake algorithm. When transfer agents don’t do their job, the guild rating is effected and they are given less influence. Eventually if the agents don’t do their job, they won’t be re-elected to get their position. Its a really crazy concept and its something that can’t be done with physical assets. There’s no way you would be able to sell half of a DeLorean.
