Fabletics, a fresh look in a crowded market

Fabletics, a fresh look in a crowded market

 

Fabletics is an up-and-coming fashion retailer focusing on athletics and leisure. Founded in 2013 the company is making waves in the fashion industry, disrupting major players like Nike and UnderArmor.

 

What makes Fabletics so notable is the subscription-based business model they sre operating under. Rather than having to hunt for specific items that make up a matching outfit, subscribers have their outfits selected by fashion consultants and professionals at Fabletics.

 

New users are asked to fill out a survey, detailing their common workouts as well as their fitness goals. In addition, considerations are made for color choices, fashion, as well as budget. Customers are free to skip any month distribution and no additional cost, and are free to make other selections with their monthly subscription funds.

 

What’s truly amazing is how well that Fabletics has taken off in the marketplace. Fashion, especially athletic fashion is a notoriously difficult marketplace for new companies, yet Fabletics has managed to do over 150 million dollars worth of business in 2015. Having expanded consistently by 35% every single year since its inception, the company has big plans for 2017 and beyond.

 

What’s even more amazing is their dedication to physical brick-and-mortar stores as well as an online presence. What started as an online business is now a serious contender in malls across America. Fabeltics is set to expand and become more competitive every year that passes. Selection and styles is already excellent at fabletics, and we can expect even more as the years go on and the company grows.

 

With over a hundred locations across America there is probably a fabletics in your town. No subscription needed, just feel free to check them out in person.

 

Above all what I like the most about Fabletics is the selection. This is company that knows what they wants to do and does it well. Rather than seek out and overpay professional athletes in nearly every sport, fabletics focuses on producing quality sportswear at affordable prices. The focus is on the product in the price not on a superficial image.

 

You aren’t buying and image or a marketing campaign, you are buying good looking, comfortable clothes for your your next workout. By removing endorsements and high level marketing campaigns from the budget, Fabletics is able to do more for less, passing the savings on, and outcompeting everyone else.

 

Fabletics has already proven themselves worthy competition for the top dogs of the industry. They have broken into the market with excellent product offerings, only looking to expand and grow from there. I’m looking forward to what they bring us next.

The Jewish Community Is Stronger Because Of Adam Milstein

In this time of tremendous cultural and political upheaval, myriad reasons are being offered as excuses for efforts to withdraw from any attempt to find common ground between those of differing backgrounds. Few seem up to the task of simultaneously harmonizing relations between the races and encouraging a sense of pride of one’s own heritage. For this job, Adam Milstein is the man we need.

A natural-born Israeli–born in Haifa, Israel in 1952—Adam has stayed true to his roots: he began his mandatory service in the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) in 1971 and served during the 1973 Yom Kippur War without hesitation. He earned his Bachelors of Science degree from the Technion–Israeli Institute of Technology–in 1978 in the field of Business and Economics.

Shortly after arriving in 1981 he earned an MBA in Entrepreneurship from USC. Immediately after, Adam began his involvement in what would begin a long and fruitful career in commercial real estate. Since 1983 he has worked with Hager Pacific Properties, a private commercial real estate investment firm which manages a portfolio of properties worth over two billion dollars. From this humble genesis, he has climbed the ladder to achieving the title of Managing Partner at the same company.

Adam seems to have a knack for bringing his native community together, both physically and in purpose. Together with his wife Gila, he has co-founded the Adam and Gila Milstein Family Foundation. This organization’s twofold mission is to both strengthen the State of Israel and its ties with the United States and to ensure the special affinity young and future Jewish generations have to the State of Israel.

Besides his personal efforts, Adam has dedicated himself to promoting the values of likeminded organizations which seek to encourage the loyalty of American Jewish youth to their cultural heritage. He presently sits on the board of several organizations, including the Israeli-American Council, StandWithUs, Israel on Campus Coalition, Hasbara Fellowships, and the Birthright and AIPAC National Council.
