Fabletics Makes Athleisure Shopping Easy

Athleisure is the current fashion trend on that everyone is loving. It stems from the idea that gym clothes, meaning leggings, sweats, and even sports bras, are now deemed acceptable and stylish clothing options worn sans workout. That being said, it is nice to imagine the trend also serves as a reminder and opportunity to take that last minute run or indulge in a post-work yoga routine if need be. Whatever it is, comfortable clothes is on the rise and with it have emerged several athletic wear companies. One company that seems to be leaping along with legging craze is Fabletics, actress Kate Hudson’s newest venture.

Launched in 2013, Fabletics is one of the few celebrity owned athletic companies that seems to have predicted the future stability of the athleisure trend. They have also pioneered a successful internet based retail business in a market that is mostly saturated by brick-and-mortar stores. Hudson has said that her goal in creating the company was to provide everyday women with an affordable, stylish line of athletic clothing. As the brand has grown, she’s demonstrated her commitment to that mission by expanding sizes and refiguring clothing options to create a truly all-inclusive clothing brand.

Just like any trend, popular styles, colors, and fabrics change throughout seasons. Hudson and her team at Fabletics have made it easy to keep up with the revolution by providing customers with must-have looks and fashion advice. They also provide helpful tips on exercise for those looking to really put those breathable fabrics to the test. Visitors to the website will even be offered an individually curated outfit after filling out a brief survey about their personal fashion tastes on Twitter. Since the line currently features hundreds of different options, this is often the best way for someone to venture away from the safety of black leggings and try something new.

Those who’ve found the line early on have discovered the added bonus of the VIP club, which serves as a sort of frequent fliers discount for athletic clothing aficionados. Membership of Fabletics is free but allows customers to purchase an entire outfit for around $40. The only catch is that the outfits are automatically generated each month, so if a customer doesn’t want one, they need to opt out of the purchase in the given window of time. However, for that price, we aren’t sure how customers are willing to miss out!

Under his guidance Burch Creative Capital has invested in numerous new ventures hand have seen the coming of age of more than 50 companies. It is perhaps best to listen when such a figure talks about technology and innovation. Also, Chris Burch has an added advantage of being with companies operating is different verticals including fashion. It is not surprising that he talks expertly about how fashion and technology can successfully marry to create winning products.
With technology advancing at breakneck pace, the fashion industry cannot be far behind in utilizing it for its benefit. A number of innovations have made things much more useful, intelligent and fashionable. Burch quotes numerous such examples in his article. Anouk Wipprecht, a designer from Holland who has a penchant for using technology in her innovation has invented a dress that can make dresses and another one that can paint itself.
While helmets are essential for bike riders, they are a nuisance at times and are certainly not an item we can call fashionable. However, a new innovative design has made it both fashionable and more useful. Instead of being wrapped around your head throughout your ride, it sits like a scarf around your neck and appears only when you suffers a sudden jerk, indicating an accident.
Similarly, it is extremely difficult for firefighters to communicate in the thick of action. A very useful technological innovation is gloves that can send messages by way of gestures.
We spend significant amount of energy when we walk or run. Also, as we are moving, we generate kinetic energy which can in principle be converted to other types of energy. Soledad Martin is trying to design shoes which can convert this energy into electrical energy, enough to charge mobile phones.
These are all examples of technology can help fashion. It isn’t all one-way traffic though. There have been instances where fashion has come to fashion’s rescue.
When Google Glass was launched, it failed to generate a lot of hype because for all the cutting edge technology, they were trying to sell nothing but a pair of glasses. Glasses, and especially very expensive tech heavy glasses, are not things you would expect to be in a rich person’s choice of party wear! To deal with issue, Google turned to the world of fashion. Diane Von Furstenberg made her models wear them in the ramp walk. The world took notice as she is a top designer and thus the fashion world gave an example of why it’s a fair partnership between tech and fashion.
