Kate Hudson’s boyfriend Danny Fujikawa chose the name for her new fashion venture.

The How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days actress is no stranger to the clothing industry, having launched activewear line Fabletics in partnership with JustFab in 2013 and worked with New York & Company as an ambassador for the clothing brand’s Soho Jeans collection.

In March, Kate also announced she was gearing up to unveil the Happy x Nature line, featuring organic and recycled fabrics, and in a new interview with The Telegraph, she credited her musician beau with dreaming up the name of the label.

‘He said, ‘That’s what people think you are, happy by nature,”‘ she recalled. “And I understand why people would associate me with that idea. The reality is that contentment is a discipline. Happiness is something that we cultivate. But I like the idea that nature can make us happy and can bring us joy. It works on lots of levels.”

The Happy x Nature collection is comprised of floral printed dresses, denim garments, boho-chic dresses, and T-shirts. Kate and the design team are endeavouring for the line to be as eco-aware as possible, right down to the fabric tags and biodegradable bags, as promoting sustainability is very important to the star.

“I love fashion and I always have, but the more you get involved in it, the more you see how irresponsible the industry has been with waste. We’ve spent so long thinking that ‘more’ means more luxurious, when we need to start thinking that simplicity is more beautiful. It’s time to start being more responsible,” the 40-year-old commented.

Elsewhere in the chat, Kate shared that she had named one item in the range – a strapless, tiered dress, after her mother – Hollywood icon Goldie Hawn.

Maddie Ziegler has been welcomed into the Fabletics family after co-designing a new line for Kate Hudson’s sporty brand.

Dropping on Friday, the Maddie X Fabletics collection features leggings and T-shirts, and the Dance Moms star happily models some of her designs in a campaign video, which she uploaded to her 13 million followers.

Decked out in pink leggings and a grey T-shirt tied up at the back, the 16-year-old shows off her moves in the promo clip.

She follows in the footsteps of Demi Lovato, Kelly Rowland and Kate’s mother Goldie Hawn in teaming up with the activewear label.

The official Fabletics account also shared the news, writing “#MaddieXFabletics available June 7 @maddieziegler,” next to a second video of the dancer.

Maddie rose to fame as a child on Lifetime’s reality show Dance Moms but became a global star after Australian singer Sia began working with her in 2014, casting her in a string of her music videos, including Chandelier, Elastic Heart and Big Girls Cry.

In recent years, the teenager has moved into acting, landing parts in The Book of Henry and animated flick Ballerina, as well as the upcoming West Side Story remake and Sia’s big screen directorial debut, Music, which also stars Kate.

In a previous chat with Cosmopolitan, Kate revealed how close she and Sia had become during filming.

“Working with Sia on a special project and knowing that no matter what, I will always have a lifelong friend in her,” she gushed.

Music, which also stars Leslie Odom Jr. and Hector Elizondo, is due out later this year.

Kate Hudson has celebrated reaching a major milestone in her post-baby weight loss journey.

The How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days actress welcomed daughter Rani Rose with boyfriend Danny Fujikawa last October (18), a sibling for her sons Ryder, 15, and Bingham, seven, from previous relationships.

Since having her third child, Kate has been open about her goal of losing 25 pounds (11 kilograms) before she starts work on a new movie in the spring, and as a WW (formerly Weight Watchers) ambassador, she is abiding by the health company’s points plan.

“Okay my friends, wanted to share! I’m a couple lbs from goal weight! I’ve done it without stressing on food or working out like crazy although I have been disciplined,” she captioned a mirror selfie in which she shows off her athletic figure on her Instagram page on Thursday (18Apr19). “I’ve taken my time, I’ve stayed true to my @ww app which I am so grateful for our relationship and that they included me in their family because it’s an incredible set up. Easy as pie! And I can eat pie… except it’s anywhere from 9-22 points which is not the best move… I personally go for the 5 point wine or vodka martini for a treat.”

But while Kate has found success by abiding by her WW plans, she also made a point of thanking those who have supported her, including her team at her athleisure clothing company Fabletics, which she co-founded in 2013.

“I feel lucky that my other work life (when my entrepreneur hat is on) is surrounded by the most inspiring people. To every single person in the @fabletics community and every person in the @ww community, you keep me focused and encouraged,” the 39-year-old continued. “I thank you! Yes, active lifestyle I find enjoyable and yes, understanding food is a passion of mine but it doesn’t mean that I don’t need the support like everyone else. Sharing the little parts of my wellness journey with you makes me feel oh so good. I can only hope that what I put out there can make you feel good and bring encouragement in return. Love, Kate.”

Kate’s next project is fantasy film Blood Moon, which is to be directed by Ana Lily Amirpour and will also feature Zac Efron.

Kate Hudson is planning to hit the high street with new designs from her first ready-to-wear line.

The Almost Famous actress is already a fashion mogul with her popular online subscription activewear brand, Fabletics, but now fans don’t have to sign up to wear her creations – the is gearing up to send her clothes to brick and mortar stores.

“ANNOUNCING my first ever ready-to-wear line called HAPPY X NATURE!” she wrote on Instagram on Thursday (28Mar19) in a caption attached to a campaign video for her new clothes. “We’re almost ready! Get your sneak peek @happyxnatureofficial (sign up at happyxnature.com LINK IN BIO) Striving to make you and nature happy Hope you love it!”

The Happy X Nature website revealed a little more about the brand, but a release date has not yet been revealed.

Kate dons some of her designs in the campaign advertisement she shared on Instagram, with the star wearing cute casual pieces such as jean overalls, a beige jumpsuit, a yellow summer dress and other everyday garments.

The actress, who welcomed her third child, a daughter, in October (18) with her boyfriend Danny Fujikawa, has been in the fashion business since 2013 when she launched Fabletics.

The inclusive brand, which offers athleisure gear from sizes zero to 30, will celebrate its sixth year in business in July, and Kate has previously spoken about her desire to make a positive difference in people’s lives through her clothing ventures.

“I don’t believe that you can have a company that is about inspiring and empowering women and not include everyone,” she told Stylecaster.

Kelly Rowland prefers activewear she can wear to any occasion

Kelly Rowland is adamant her new activewear line can take any woman from “day to night”.

The 37-year-old singer has teamed up with sportswear brand Fabletics, which was co-founded by Kate Hudson in 2013, to create a 17-piece dance-inspired capsule collection of workout clothing.

And Kelly is thrilled that her range consists of perfect pieces that don’t ever need to be confined to the gym.

“I love the fact that it’s a lifestyle brand and the pieces the creative team and I thought of were to help you go from day to night,” she explained in an interview with WWD. “I have so many days where I’ll start with my workouts and I get a call, ‘Oh, you have a meeting at this time,’ and I know I have something else to do and can’t get back home. I know I just have to have my day run its course and they’re pieces that I can just pop on.”

The collection, which ranges from size XXS to 3X, includes leggings, sports bras, bodysuits, tops, a bomber jacket, as well as a hoodie, and can be purchased in-store and online. Pieces are priced between $24.95 (£19) and $64.95 (£51).

Kelly added that the idea of activewear being worn during everyday life is appropriate for the busy schedules of women today.

“It’s definitely activewear, but I feel like you’re being active all day,” the former Destiny’s Child star considered. “That’s why it’s important to have the designs really showcase that. Being able to take yourself from being so gym-like. There’s this one top that we did, I would put that with a skirt.”

Away from activewear, Kelly, who is mother to four-year-old son Titan, also expressed an interest in designing children’s clothing one day.

“I’m obsessed with kids’ clothes,” she laughed. “My son’s closet is ridiculous.”

New mum Kate Hudson files copyright lawsuit to protect leisurewear brand

Kate Hudson has hit bosses at FabCrate with a new lawsuit, insisting their name is too similar to her brand Fabletics.

The new mum founded the business in 2013 and offers a subscription service providing women’s sportswear, footwear and accessories, while selling direct through 22 Fabletics stores in the U.S.

Hudson believes FabCrate is confusing customers, not just because of its title but because a similar subscription service is offered by those running the brand. FabCrate, which debuted in 2017, distributes similar items in curated crates.

According to The Blast, executives at Fabletics claim they reached out to the heads of the lifestyle seller to try and resolve the issue but they were “unresponsive”.

In the lawsuit, it is also alleged that workers at FabCrate are not following proper procedure and law for operating their business and are therefore causing damage to the lifestyle industry. In the filing, the FabCrate creators have been asked to cease operation immediately and turn over their profits.

Though Hudson maintains the existence of FabCrate is damaging to her brand, Fabletics has had a highly profitable run since its launch. According to Forbes, the company is currently valued at $250 million (£190 million).

Hudson developed the brand along with entrepreneurs Adam Goldenberg and Don Ressler, who serves as Chief Executive Officer.

Earlier this month, the Almost Famous star teamed up with her mother, Goldie Hawn, for a clothing line released under the brand that served to raise funds for the Snatched star’s mental health charity, MindUP.

The collection was unveiled just before the 39 year old gave birth to daughter Rani Rose on 2 October (18).

Pregnant actress Kate Hudson is expanding her Fabletics activewear range to include new clothing weekly.

The subscription based athleisure label has been a huge success since its 2013 launch by the Almost Famous star, and Kate and her partners have decided to introduce exciting fresh additions to their clothing line-up in honour of the achievements they’ve reached in five years of business.

“When we launched Fabletics, it was about more than just selling activewear,” she writes in a statement. “We set out to create an inclusive community, where we could make an active lifestyle fun and accessible. I never imagined that in just five years we would have 1.4 million inspiring and powerful women in our community that we engage with daily.

“Hearing their stories of how we’ve helped them along their journey are what truly inspires and drives us… We’re celebrating by delivering even better fit, fabric, style and performance that we know our members will love, all at the same amazing value, for which Fabletics is known.”

In addition to featuring weekly capsule collections, Fabletics designers are offering new state-of-the-art performance fabrics in the brand’s clothes, including SculptKnit, a compressed textile created for sweaty, high-impact workouts that offers extra flexibility and support.

The revamped Cashel legging will combine the label’s signature soft PowerForm fabric with breathable mesh in addition to a foldover waistband and other design features that allows for versatility of wear.

Finally, a new take on Fabletics sports bras is on offer, including the Zoe Sports Bra, which boasts moldable cups, breathable mesh inserts and other technical fabrics designed to bolster support during fitness sessions.

The new Fabletics apparel is available starting this month (Sep18).

Kate Hudson is set to create her own fashion line for New York & Company.

The Almost Famous actress, known for her sophisticated red carpet style, has already made moves into the fashion world with her popular activewear line, Fabletics.

However, Kate is now about to follow in the footsteps of celebrities such as Eva Mendes and Gabrielle Union as she has signed on to spearhead her own ready-to-wear collection for the New York-based womenswear retailer.

“It has always been important for me to partner with companies that share my values and creative vision. I love the quality of materials and fabrics New York & Co. uses,” she explained to WWD. “Their size ranges and affordable price points, along with their commitment to empowering women through fashion makes New York & Co. an ideal partner for me to launch my new collection with.”

As part of the deal, Kate will develop a main collection of clothes consisting of “statement casual” tops, sweaters, sportswear, denim and dresses. The items will be sold in New York & Co.’s boutiques and website, with label bosses hoping to set up a dedicated digital platform for the range too.

In addition, the blonde star will also act as a brand ambassador for the company’s Soho Jeans category.

“Our customers have been asking for a partnership with Kate for years,” Greg Scott, chief executive officer of New York & Co, commented. “We believe her star power, style and broad social influence will not only strengthen our relationships with existing customers but also ignite our customer acquisition initiatives.”

And 39-year-old Kate, who is currently expecting a baby daughter with her partner Danny Fujikawa, will be taking a hands-on approach to the entire collection.

“Kate has a million ideas for silhouettes, prints and fabrics,” Greg added. “As a business partner with us, Kate’s going to support her collection in many ways, just like Eva and Gabrielle support their lines, socially, at store events and public relations events.”

A release date for Kate’s line has not yet been announced.

Demi Lovato is the face of CORE Hydration’s latest campaign.

The bottled water company, launched in 2015 by beverage entrepreneur Lance Collins and producer Dr. Luke, was created to help balance the body’s acid and alkaline levels.

The brand has now unveiled Sorry Not Sorry singer Demi, who has publicly supported fellow singer Kesha in her legal battle with Dr. Luke, real name Lukasz Gottwald, as the face of its new Finding Balance campaign.

Kesha has accused the producer of physical, sexual and mental abuse when they worked together, allegations he has denied.

“CORE and I have always shared a common point of view: be true to your core… It’s so important to find gratitude in life, focus on the positive things and celebrate yourself, which is exactly what CORE motivates its fans to do and why I’m proud to be an investor and partner,” she said in a statement.

She joins an elite line-up of celebrity investors including Adam Levine, Diplo, Ellie Goulding, Katy Perry and Karlie Kloss.

CORE’s chief marketing officer Eric Berniker added: “Between the success of her Tell Me You Love Me tour, commitment to spreading awareness for issues she is passionate about and journey towards embracing body positivity and self-love, each day Demi is striving to live a healthy, balanced lifestyle. We admire her for this and are extremely proud to be partnering with her for CORE’s latest campaign.”

As well as print images, the popstar also starred in seven videos to promote the water.

“Life is a balancing act,” she captioned one clip on Instagram. So excited to show you my new campaign with @core! Had so much fun working on this. Head over to Core’s website to see all 7 videos. (link in bio) #perfectlybalanced.”

This is the latest lifestyle collaboration for the 25-year-old; she previously teamed up with Kate Hudson’s Fabletics and Skechers on a sneaker line.

Demi Lovato has launched a summer capsule collection with Fabletics.

The pop star first collaborated with the sportswear brand, co-founded by actress Kate Hudson, in 2017, and has now teamed up with them again to create a line of fitness clothes ready for the warmer months.

“I’m so excited to continue working with Fabletics to launch a cool, new collection for summer!” she enthused in a statement. “I took inspiration from my tour and wanted to give my fans a collection of styles that make me feel confident. Whether you’re on the road or at home in your everyday routine, these pieces are intended to brighten your mood and inspire everyone to have fun staying active.”

In a campaign photo released to promote Demi’s latest line, the 25-year-old poses in the doorway of a bus wearing a matching black long-sleeve top and legging set, featuring funky patterns and sheer panelling.

The Sorry Not Sorry hitmaker has often spoken out about the benefits exercise brings to both her physical and mental health, and is a big fan of workouts like circuit training, mixed martial arts and jiu-jitsu. While Demi has days where she struggles to find motivation, she admitted that an attractive wardrobe gives her the push she needs.

“I think 75 per cent of the challenge of working out is getting dressed and getting to the gym, so when you have cute clothes, it definitely helps,” she explained in an interview with SELF. “Working out really empowers me. It makes me feel stronger.”

And for the sake of her own wellbeing, Demi, 25, prefers to steer clear of exercise influencers on social media platforms.

“I’m not a huge fan of Instagram stuff when it comes to fitness,” she confessed. “Just because you can do a lot of comparing and sometimes it just seems unobtainable with the way that people work out and look a certain way.”
