Introducing “Kardashian Kloset”: The Latest Kardashian-Jenner Business To Capitalize on the Reality Family’s Fame
By Ellie Zimmerman
A recent study done by secondhand clothing retailer ThredUp shows that purchasing secondhand clothing may overtake traditional means of buying clothes. Fewer people are visiting malls or department stores and many are instead buying online directly from designers or consignment shops. In fact, according to the study, 1 in 3 women shopped for thrifted clothing last year. The main cause of this increase, is young peoples’ desire to look cool and unique, while staying sustainable.
Utilizing one of retail’s fastest growing sectors, the Kardashian/Jenner Klan launched “Kardashian Kloset”, a luxury designer resale site featuring the Kardashian-Jenner family’s clothing. Kardashian Kloset is the latest in a series of successful businesses for the Kardashian-Jenner family members, who have leveraged their publicity towards entrepreneurial success. Kylie Jenner’s Kylie Cosmetics, achieved an estimated valuation of $900 million in 2019, while Kim Kardashian West’s KKW Beauty, has generated an estimated $100 million. The family’s status as idolized fashion figures and multi-million dollar influencers gives their clothing a high demand. Their Balmain dresses, Balenciaga booties, Chanel necklaces, and other designer goods sold out almost immediately. Awaiting the next drop of items on Kardashian Kloset, Kardashian fans everywhere are guaranteeing success of Kardashian Kloset.
Introducing Chief – A Private Club for Female Executives To Network and Get Support
By Samantha Roskind
Chief, a New-York based private club for female executives, is bringing the “old boys club” to women. Launched in New York in January 2019 with the help of 3 million dollars in funding as well as 200 founding women, the club aims to link women at similar stages in their careers into groups for networking, support and leadership opportunities. Members originate from companies including Instagram, Amazon, and Walmart. The Core program, the most important offering of the club, separates their members evenly into groups of 10 or less for monthly meetings. These meetings are used to discuss members’ experiences in the work world. Apart from these substantial monthly meetings, the Salon Series, which is held at Chief’s Clubhouse in Tribeca, is where the members can participate in workshops and game nights. Nicole Foster, head of global marketing at the Amazon Web Services, states, “The group sessions leave you feeling heard, acknowledged, and valued. That can be rare, despite one’s success. It’s the idea that, yes, your skill set matters, but the relationships you build are what power companies forward.” Chief seems to encourage women to pursue their interests and help them gain confidence and reassurance in their work ethics and success.
