Honey Birdette Brand’s Groundbreaking Projects and Plans

Boutiques’ products vary, and underclothes are one of the common outfits. Honey Birdette, a renowned lingerie brand, is a top retail and online distributor of underwear. It was instituted by Eloise Monaghan back in 2006. This brand has gained popularity in recent years due to its robust online marketing strategies and presence on social media avenues, such as Facebook and Instagram. It is backed by BBRC, a private investment firm.

The rapid expansion of Honey Birdette

The brand was launched online by Eloise after making significant online sales, which were valued to a 374 percent increment in a twelve months duration. The business moved out of Australia in last year and opened its physical stores in London-based Covent Garden. Honey Birdette later opened two other stores in Westfield White City and Leeds’ Victoria Gate. Prices for briefs start around 35 euros for the premium label and 65 euros for bras.

Back in its headquarters in Australia, Honey Birdette has opened 55 shops. The brand has plans of moving to the U.S. and own a fleet of retail openings. In the UK, they also have the aim of advancing the stores count. Birdette plans to reach out to more customers. Honey Birdette has announced the openings they have lined up already in the UK. They include Liverpool, Leeds, Newcastle, and Westfield Stratford. By the end of 2018, they are targeting forty stores. The brand will be aiming at expanding its presence in Europe.

The e-commerce technique has boosted the enterprise. The online marketing and purchasing have made easier for the brand to have a wider scope of operation. Its website is classy with ease to use, and they offer shipment services to clients overseas. They provide free delivery services for any purchase exceeding $50. The main agenda is to enhance the experience both new and existing customers.

New Hope for Cancer Patients

Cancer Treatment Centers of America has decided to partner with Allscripts and NantHealth to implement a custom technical solution that will enable several institutions the access to clinical workflows and clinical decision support solutions. According to a recent report, clinical pathways program will help in informing the cancer treatment procedure, and it will not interfere with the doctor’s clinical workflow. The operating system used is believed to have been developed by hundreds of experienced oncologists from all over the country. The program also holds a very comprehensive collection of the evolving cancer care data in the US.

George Danekar, the chief medical officer at the Cancer Treatment Centers of America, says that Clinical Pathways will represent all the right treatment options for the patients. According to him, the program will eliminate the possible guess work that is done by clinicians. The guesswork is inundated by new data and the ongoing oncology research. George says that the doctors have now created an ecosystem that has different treatment options. The system is customized to CTCA’s care standards. The patients will now be able to review and then choose the treatment that is efficient and safe for them at the end of the day.

Clinical Pathways has been designed with the interest of the patient in mind, and it integrates the latest and modern cancer research. The program is expected to create greater transparency especially around the therapeutic selection and also care delivery. The program will play a fundamental role in improving the efficiency and quality of services by significantly reducing variability in care. The platform will enable the patients and their doctors to discuss and at the same time compare different types of treatments. This means that the patients will have greater confidence and appropriateness desired in cancer treatment. Clinical Pathways will help in making sure that insurance providers approve the treatment needed for cancer patients.

EOS Revolutionized Lip Balm

EOS, an acronym for the Evolution of Smooth, revolutionized the lip balm world just seven years ago when they released their own lip balm brand to compete with the large companies already dominating the space. Of course, lip balm is about the last industry that you would ever expect to be revolutionized, so their story is a compelling one to say the least.

How EOS lip balm came to change the market is a tale of learning about their customers including those who were not all that enthralled with the lip balms that they were using. For the most part, the lip balm that people consumed in the year 2000 was pretty much the same that was sold in 1900. Flavored were bland and medicinal, the products were made from petroleum jelly, that oil byproduct, and lip balm was sold in these androgynous applicator tube that was sanitary, but easily lost in the handbag of women, who were the primary buyer of lip balm.

The most interesting part of the lip balm market was that the female consumer who primarily bought lip balm was not all that excited about using it and had no loyalty to the brands that they bought. EOS set to change that by making a product that excited these female consumers on Target.

They started with organic and all natural ingredients including higher quality oils which last longer and provide added moisture protection. New and unique flavored were added which contain fruit and subtle flavors which were appealing to women. Finally a new applicator orb (http://www.racked.com/2014/10/31/7571165/eos-lip-balm) was introduced which was not only sanitary but also unique and stood out.

According to Fast Company, this market strategy proved to be a success and consumers bought EOS lip balms in droves to the forefront of the market to the point where competitors started to emulate EOS.

The Art of the Collector

Who wouldn’t want an original Degas or Michelangelo gracing a wall in his or her home? Now, think about how cool it would be to be able to purchase both and then another fantastic art piece, and another, and another. What if you could both access and own tons of fabulous artistic renderings, masterpieces that you procure? Then you might be an art collector.

Adam Sender obtained the money for his many art purchases from earnings from his success with hedge funds began his collecting of contemporary pieces in the 1990s. Over the course of the past year, a portion of his collection has been unveiled at Sothebys. His original purchases have greatly increased in value. He has stated that he likes to collect “emerging artists” because he is confident that he can spot great pieces which will yield both aesthetic enjoyment and monetary value as time goes on.

He and his wife, Lenore, have enjoyed the collecting, and it has been said that they would love to keep putting collections of art together to have “pop-up” exhibits. The joy appears to be in both the sensing what will become valuable but is already artistically pleasing, plus what will increase in value, and what will make a good collection for the enjoyment of not only Sender but those who can then view what he has compiled and exhibits. Sender has said that he finds the whole thing to be “fun.”

Adam Sender is a well known art collector.

The Sotheby sales of Sender’s collection which is in their hands for liquidation have been estimated to glean $70 million. This collection of works involves 400 pieces by 139 artists, and the variety yet cohesive nature of the works is astounding.

The liquidation helps Sender, and the art gets to be disseminated to other collectors and appreciators of the works. Plus, Sender has already more than made up for what he paid for the works originally, and the $70 is artistic gravy so to speak.

What makes a collection exciting? That, like most art interpretation, is in the eye of the beholder. Sometimes, it is the thrill of the find; the rarer or more unique a piece the better. Sometimes it is the way that the composition or colors or subject matter speak to the collector. At other points, it is merely a business venture with an eye toward what will bring in financial gain in the long term. It can also be about a tone or feel that someone is trying to create through an artistic compilation of coordinating and in some way connected or associated pieces. Sender appears to have an eye for the art itself, the financial benefit, and how pieces will work together in a collection.

Macy’s To Offer In-Home Tailoring Service From George Zimmer

Macy’s is adding another way to compete with other upscale department stores. They have announced the launch of an in-home or an in-office tailoring service for clothes that are bought online. The service will be provided byzTailors, a tailoring service run by Men’s Wearhouse Founder George Zimmerman. It will is currently being tested in Los Angeles, and if everything goes well, plans are to launch the service in D.C., San Francisco, New York City, and San Diego, as well as Oregon and Florida, by the end of the month. The company plans to expand the service nationwide by the fall.

Off the rack clothing has only been popular with consumers in the last 50 years, and many customers are discovering that they do not necessarily fit clothes the way they are designed. Rather than requiring customers to spend hours trying on a wide variety of clothes trying to find that perfect fit, in-home and in-office tailoring allows mid to high end customers the opportunity to find and try clothes that they like and then have them altered to fit. Wealthy people and people who don’t fit in traditional sizes have been doing this for decades, particularly when it comes to high-end items like business suits and wedding dresses, but z-tailors and Macy’s offers a service that is more accessible to the middle class according to the businesswoman Susan McGalla. It also is great for busy people who need the tailor to come to them.
