Ressler Continues to Help Build TechStyle Brand into a Clothing Industry Force

Ressler Continues to Help Build TechStyle Brand into a Clothing Industry Force

Over the years, Don Ressler has developed a strong reputation for building successful start-ups in the business world.

Now he and his frequent business partner Adam Goldenberg have joined forces with Hollywood star Kate Hudson with the Fabletics firm started in 2013.

Fabletics started as an online subscription for women’s athletic apparel as the latest endeavor by Ressler’s TechStyle Fashion Group, formerly known as JustFab. What stands out as the clothing brand is that it is designed both for gym workouts and for everyday wear. This cuts down on having to change clothes during the day just to get in a workout.

Fabletics is the fastest-growing brand in the TechStyle firm and is transitioning from online to being a brick-and-mortar franchise with the goal of adding 75-100 stores within the next five years.

The brand has been so successful that Fabletics is launching F2, a men’s line for both everyday use and sportswear. Even Kate’s brother, Oliver Hudson, has helped develop the new men’s brand.

The brand’s success is only the latest from Ressler who has made a name for himself many times over. He first began with FitnessHeaven.com before teaming with Goldenberg at Intermix Media to form the offshoot Alena Media. After NewsCorp bought out Alena’s parent company, Ressler and Goldenberg left in order to attain more autonomous control of their ideas.

Eventually, after some strategy sessions at Goldenberg’s house along with several former Alena Media employees, Intelligent Beauty was formed with Ressler as the company CEO. Under that company banner, many successful brands were formed. Chief among them were DERMSTORE, an online cosmetics market, and SENSA, a weight-loss system.

Eventually, JustFab came along to make its presence felt in the clothing industry. The current clothing business TechStyle started out as JustFab in 2010 and has steadily been built up. However, the quick success of Fabletics have further racheted up the company’s presence in today’s clothing industry.

Within a little over a year, then JustFab raised $85 million to pursue larger business goals within the clothing market. By 2015, over 5,000 new clothing items were being made and plans for a men’s sportswear were underway.

Now it appears that Ressler and his company are ready to take on the likes of Nike and Under Armour when it comes to men’s sportswear.

History suggests that they can’t be discounted even against these giants.
