Fabletics – Breast Cancer Awareness

Kate Hudson is an iconic actress, fashion tastemaker and the co-founder of Fabletics. As an organization, Fabletics deals with promoting a healthy lifestyle as well as designing clothes that inspire different women from different walks of life. The organization also fosters a community of people who embrace its mantra, which is “live your passion every day”.

Founded in the year 2013, Fabletics penetrated the market at a time when a good number of luxury brands had made a name for themselves. The only difference between these brands and Fabletics was the fact that these other brands were offering their products at a much higher price. Having the opportunity to showcase their talents and inspiration, Kate Hudson, Don Ressler, and Adam Goldenberg joined hands to create the Fabletics brand and organization. In a span of only two years, Fabletics has expanded from an e-commerce site to a huge reputable company with a total of six retail shops nationwide.

Fabletics success and mission attracted the interest of the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) who asked Kate Hudson to join hands with them in improving the Fashion Targets Breast Cancer program (FTBCP). The Fashion Targets Breast Cancer Fund (FTBCF) aids women with breast cancer by providing them with grants as well as supporting low-income earners suffering from the disease.

Established in 1996 by Ralph Lauren, FTBC has also made a name for itself as the global leader in the fashion industry. Apart from this, FTBC is among the leading companies that promote cancer awareness in the world. The company which is currently endowed by the CFDA Foundation has also joined hands with The New York Community Trust to form a grant-making program that specializes in breast cancer screening, survival, and treatment. The CFDA organization is a UK-based campaign group that funds breast cancer research and works with its industry members to support those affected by the disease. According to Steven Kolb, CFDA CEO, the organization is more than excited to have Kate Hudson on board. According to Steve Kolb, Kate Hudson is the perfect ambassador for the cause since she perfectly understands the importance fashion, and how much of an influence fashion can have on philanthropic endeavors for the benefits of the entire community.

To honor the collaboration, Fabletics debuted an FTBC branded outfit on the 28th of September during the October Breast Cancer Awareness Month and the National Women’s Health and Fitness Day. The Fabletics organization is also planning to host its own FTBC event, with a share of the proceeding going towards the campaign’s programs. As it stands, the brand expects to hit $150 million in revenue by the end of this year, a clear indication of just how much the company has grown since its foundation.

Venezuelan Songstress Norka Luque Is Making An Impact In The Music World

The fast moving music business waits for no one. Musicians may be on top of the world one year and forgotten the next. Music executives like to stir the pot of talent that comes and goes like a summer thunderstorm, so audiences don’t get bored. Boredom is the kiss of death in the music world. Staleness is another trait that ruins the careers of musicians. In order to stay in the limelight, musicians must constantly reinvent themselves and their musical expressions. No one knows that better than 30-year-old Norka Luque. Norka has been reinventing herself for the last 15 years.

 

 

Luque was born in Venezuela, but her parents left the country when Hugo Chavez was the president. The Luque’s realized that Norka had talent when she performed in a musical in Caracas when she was eight-years-old. Norka’s parents knew they had to leave their homeland so Norka could get the kind of musical education she wanted and needed. Norka spent years developing her singing style, but her parents wanted her to continue her education in France before she went into the music industry full time. Norka spent four years in France. During that time, she earned a degree in business as well as a degree in fashion and the culinary arts. The business world was intriguing, so when the opportunity to work in Monte Carlo was offered, she took it.

 

 

Norka left the band she joined when she went to work in Monte Carlo. The band, Bad Moon Rising, had a dance cult-type following, and Norka was considered the main maven in that dance world. But she wanted to use what she learned in France before she made the decision to move back to Florida and work in the music industry. The decision to move back to Ft. Lauderdale was made in 2007 at a Ricky Martin concert. Martin was one of Norka’s childhood idols. Norka realized she could be on that stage someday if she made the effort.

 

 

Moving to the Miami area wasn’t hard because her family was still living in Ft. Lauderdale. Norka wanted to develop a following in the Latino clubs along South Beach, and that’s what she did. Luque’s voice, style, as well as her beautiful looks and spirit turned heads on South Beach. Luque recorded her first album in 2011. Norka was nominated for the female vocalists of the year award when her first single was released, and she is still making a huge impact in the music world.
