Intelligent Beauty was their first online based retail endeavor. They sold the company after launching several successful products on hudl.com. They decided to take a different direction on an online platform and developed the JustFab company. They saw incredible success with it in a short period of time. From that company, others such as Fabletics emerged. Fabletics is one of the fastest growing companies in the country right now.
Fabletics has taken the all-inclusive approach to its marketing strategy. That means that they embrace customers of all sizes rather than a select range of sizes like some other companies do. They pride themselves on providing high-quality active wear for individuals that are all body types and shapes. American actress Kate Hudson is the face of Fabletics and helps promote the brand and helps create fun and fashionable clothing that people everywhere have come to love. Fabletics not only creates athletic wear, but they also provide high fashion evening wear as well as swimwear. The swimwear and the evening wear have features that high-end pricey clothing has, but at a much more affordable price. There are built in bras as well as tummy control. The swimwear is designed to stay in place and not slide around so that the wearer can be active without having to worry.
Fabletics has a platform just like JustFab. It is a subscription based service that allows the customer to choose one piece every month. That article of clothing is covered by the monthly subscription fee. According to Goldenberg, the in-house style team will select a boutique of clothing for each customer which is based on their preference. Upon signing up for the service, the customer is asked a series of questions about personal style so that the style team can create their boutiques and match them with clothing that they will love. Fabletics has gained incredible popularity and is now a household name.

Going onto Trustpilot.com I automatically run into several positive reviews on Fabletics. The first review is about an amazing coat that they “love, love, love”. It is a Moscow coat that looks great with anything from jeans to leggings, to even dresses. They love the versatility of the coat. They can wrap it around them like a blanket or add a belt to make it more form fitting. They explain that the workmanship is high quality, which they expected from Fabletics products. Along with this woman’s review of the Moscow coat, Fabletics replied quickly to thank them for such an amazing review and tell her how happy they are that she loves it.
As I scrolled down a few more reviews I ran into a five-star review. It is apparent that this person is a repeat customer because they go on to explain that they are never disappointed. They also go on to explain that their order arrived in a reasonable amount of time. She also explains that the quality of the product is amazing. Fabletics also replied to this person to explain how happy they are that they enjoy their orders from Fabletics and they love hearing from members like her.
One woman explained that there was a disappointing return of one of her orders that she wrote a review about. Within minutes she was contacted by their customer service to help resolve the issue. So, in the end, this woman had an amazing interaction with their customer service and plans on continuing to order from them. It is very rare that a company can have customer service that replies to that degree to resolve an issue that a customer is experiencing. They saved themselves from losing a customer because they have amazing customer service skills.
Fabletics is a sportswear company that focuses on being all inclusive and fashionable. They are co-owned by Kate Hudson and getting bigger by the year. They started in 2013 and only catered towards women’s activewear. Since then they have expanded into men’s wear and more leisure wear for women as well. They started as a subscription online business and have expanded to opening physical stores as of 2016. They plan on opening another 75-100 stores within the next few years to help reach a broader range of customers.
Don Ressler is a creative entrepreneur behind several successful start-ups. He is one of the founders behind the overly successful online fashion subscription service Intelligent Beauty and its subsidiaries. Don’s first endeavor was a fitness service by the name FitnessHeaven.com. He later sold the company to Matrix Media in 2001. Don and Adam Goldenberg, the then 19-year-old COO at Intermix Media teamed up to start Alena Media. This was an e-commerce and performance advertising platform that generated hundreds of millions for Intermix in revenue. After Intermix was purchased by News Corp, Don, and his partner left to explore better opportunities.
Don and his partner were focused on the field of online performance advertisement. They brainstormed with former talented and like-minded Alena Team members and came up with Intelligent Beauty. This was a company that dealt with several cosmetic and skin care products online. Don Ressler and his partner also launched a fitness program two years later. They brought on board Founder of Intermix Brett Brewer as the Chief Executive Officer and Dr. Allan Hirsch for product development. In 2008 Intelligent Beauty received 43 million dollars in funding from Technology Crossover Ventures.
Don and his partner then made some significant developments on Intelligent Beauty. In the year 2010, they launched JustFab. This was an online subscription service for fashion retailing on en.wikipedia.org. They sourced Funds worth 33 million dollars from Matrix Partners and got Fashion Icon Kimora Lee Simmons on Board as the President and Creative Director in 2011. This was an intelligent move for Ressler and his partner, by the end of that year, the membership at JustFab had hit a whopping 4 million.
Don and Adam were now running a firm with quite a high performance. This led them to seek to expand their fashion enterprise. They first acquired a kid’s fashion e-commerce service called FabKids in 2013. Later the same year they bought a European based e-commerce fashion service for shoes called FabShoes. This was a move that brought their firm to the European Market with its 500,000 members across France and Spain. This was a further addition to the 1.5 million members JustFab had in Germany and the United Kingdom. In 2014 the company got 85 million dollars in funding from Passport Special Opportunity Fund. Inclusive of the existing investors in the company including Shinning Capital, Technology Crossover Ventures, and Matrix Partners the company got around 250 million dollars in funding.
Don is an excellent and dedicated co-CEO at Intelligent Beauty and JustFab. He says he learned that finding the right partner to grow alongside with is essential in business development.

Few careers offer the potential glamour and excitement of modeling. The best models travel the world and spend their time socializing with the most elite names in the entertainment industry. Modeling is a lucrative career for even the lesser-known individuals and their talents and connections often lead them into other careers in the fashion or entertainment industries after their modeling days are complete.
Becoming a model is not a simple task because of the amount of competition that exists. Many of the most famous models were discovered by talent scouts or photographers. Others spends countless hours devoted to finding ways to get their portfolio into the right hands. Modeling requires that people be in amazing physical condition, stay updated on all style trends and learn how to carry themselves effectively.
Modeling is possible only during a short period of time. Only the very best can stretch their career beyond the age of 30 or 40. This means that every aspiring model must start early and be relentless about contacting agencies and being seen in the right places, by the right people. Companies like the Brown Modeling Agency search out only the best models to represent them. It is this demand for perfection that has made them one of the most respected agencies in Texas.

Madeline Stuart, the 18-year-old model with Down’s Syndrome, recently broke the mold again by releasing her own bridal photo shoot. Her mission was to prove that bridal modeling doesn’t have to be exclusive for the stereotypical tall, thin models. The photo shoot was carried out at the Rixey Manor manor in Virgina, which is owned by Isadora Martin-Dye.
Sarah Houston, who was the photographer of the shoot reported that Stuart’s mother, Rosanne, had some reservations at first due to concerns that it would be an excuse for newspapers to sell Madeline as a celebrity. However, she quickly came to her senses and realized that it could also be a vehicle for helping to improve the general public’s perceptions about Down Syndrome. Houston also commented that she was blown away by how easy Madeline was to work with because of her warm personality.
Martin-Dye also later commented on a Facebook post that Stuart seems to be the happiest in front of the camera.
The dress that Stuart wore was a ruffle with a short train and a sparkly tank at the top. On her face was a little bit of dark blue eyeshadow, mascara and very red lipstick. Her red hair was pinned up. Everything she was wearing matched her face and skin tone perfectly. Her best feature, though, was probably her smile.
JustFab is its own unique fashion retail company. First, they make it a point to get to know your style personally so that they can glean an idea of what to offer their clients on their personal boutique. From there, their clients can shop and join their VIP membership. Clients also always have a “Skip the Month” option, which means that he or she can opt out of purchases for the month by clicking the
“Skip” button by the 5th of every month. There is also the option of cancellation at any time by contacting the membership team.
In a land full of sparkly eyeshadow, light pink lipsticks, or soft fluffy eyeshadow brushes, beauty is created. This world is that of makeup, a wonderful place where women and men can be creative using colors of the rainbow to make our world a lovelier place.
When applying make-up, even if a bit of lipstick, it can make one feel as though they are offering the world an improved form of themselves. Of course makeup won’t fix a foul mood but it can make one feel better knowing that they look better. When it comes to purchasing makeup, some are loyal to only one brand while others buy a cosmetic because of its guaranteed quality and how it works with one’s looks and skin. Some enjoy cosmetics that provide a timeless look while there are those who compare a face to a blank canvas on which to experiment with creative looks.
If you are one to try an innovative make-up look, be sure to start with your eyes and have them stand out. Consider about using a prominent shade like blue, purple or silver like those offered from Lime Crime. This yummy cosmetic line offers shades like Libra, Aquarius and Ophiuchus with glitter from their Zodiac color collection. Try eyeliner in a bright sky blue (such as Lime Crime’s liquid eyeliner in Lazuli). Go for a blue again but on lashes by opting for blue mascara or consider even using false eyelashes.
Now that the eyes are finished, apply some blush to the apples of cheeks but just enough to compliment so do not overdue the color. Apply translucent face power over this to get a finished look. For lips consider using a lighter shade like the gorgeous Coquette, Babette or Cosmopop (again from Lime Crime’s Unicorn lipstick collection). These shades provide a great hint of color while not being too extreme, particularly if accompanying a face that is wearing bold eye color. Lime Crime lipsticks (established by Doe Deere) are very creamy and they do not dry out lips, while colors are very opaque.
With a sincere love of music, Lime Crime founder Doe Deere started out as a youngster as a member of Sky Salt, a band that played “fairytale rock” and releasing the single I Believe In Fairy Tales (available on iTunes). For her stage attire, she dissected clothing items and stitched them back together to suit her own style. This led Deere to design clothing which she sold on the Internet. Her clothing focused on two colors which were lime and green merged with hot pink (her favorite colors) and brimmed of polka dots and forceful checker prints in rainbow bright colors.
Not being pleased with cosmetics that were available encouraged Doe Deere to produce her own line. Receiving a great response for a red eye shadow tutorial lead her to create several more focusing on unusual makeup which ultimately led to her Lime Crime cosmetic line which she launched in 2008.
