Kate Hudson – mother, actress, athleisure wear designer, and health enthusiast – has partnered with the Council of Fashion Designers of America, having agreed to become this year’s ambassador for Fashion Targets Breast Cancer. She has designed a capsule collection of clothing to support the cause as well under her three-year old design company, Fabletics. The collection will include capri leggings, two tank tops, and a bralette.
Hudson is enthusiastic about the partnership, and about the capsule collection of Fabletics she designed in celebration. She states that she especially wanted to create something women would want to actually wear, not just to buy for the sake of a worthy cause. She placed particular focus on the shades of pink chosen; no pastel baby shades here – bolder, deeper fuchsias instead.
“Everyone knows someone that has been diagnosed with breast cancer,” Ms. Hudson points out. “When you think about it, it’s very scary, but we’ve come so far… We’ve got more and more survivors, but it’s something that’s still very much a part of our lives.” As an expression of solidarity with women, she has dedicated a portion of her time and her business to fighting back against this insidious disease that continues to affect the lives of so many women we all know and love.

It’s interesting that Ms. Hudson’s chosen field in fashion of Fabletics, athletic wear for women, has recently enjoyed a surge of interest and is ‘on-trend’ as they say. Even such high-end collections as Versace and Vetements are getting in on it now, with athletic wear on offer. Kate Hudson was early in on this field, and her line is well-designed and well-thought of by her clientele. She states that her leggings in particular do very well, with a very high percentage of repeat customers.
Coming soon: the brand’s first high-waisted leggings, which Kate says are great for anyone who’s had children, or maybe not had children but just prefers to have that support. And maybe especially in pink.

The music industry needs fresh talent. The music business is a nonstop revolving door where artists come and go like shoppers in a mall. Most musicians practice their trade because they love what they do. Becoming famous is a perk that few of them achieve in their musical careers. But that doesn’t stop them from performing every day. Music is the innate love of sound and poetry blended into harmonious melodies filled with individual expressions. Some of those expressions hit a nerve in all music lovers, and that’s when artists become famous. It doesn’t matter where those artists come from, or what they look like when their talent is showcased in a particular musical genre. A good example of a musician that has the attention of music lovers from all walks of life is Norka Luque. Luque is the Venezuelan-born artist that is destined to be a music legend, according to some music executives.
Miami is the mecca for Latino musicians. Artists that want to break into the big time in Latino music come to Miami, and they take a shot at being discovered. Norka Luque moved to Miami when she was still in school. Her parents recognized her musical abilities when she performed in a musical in Venezuela when she was eight. The Luque’s decided to move to the Miami area, so Norka could take voice and piano lesson while she attended high school. Norka decided to study in France, and she spent four years there. She didn’t give up music while she was studying fashion, the culinary arts, and business, however. She joined a small group called Bad Moon Rising, and she became the lead singer. Her time with the band gave her the confidence she needed to pursue music as a career. But she didn’t choose music right away. Norka worked in the financial business in Monte Carlo before she returned to her musical roots.
In 2007, Norka attended a Ricky Martin concert, and that was the catalyst she needed to move back to Florida. Norka decided to sing in a club on South Beach, and that’s when her big break came. Word got back to music producer Emilio Estefan that Norka had the voice he was looking for. Estefan offered her a recording contract, and Norka started working with the producer that made the Miami Sound Machine a worldwide sensation.
Norka had to take a break in 2015 because of health issues, but she’s back, and her music is climbing up the music charts again.

According to an article recently published on PR News Wire, Marc Sparks has moved the offices of Timber Creek to a new location in Dallas. From this new office, Marc will help a limited number of new startups on their road to success. After having started several businesses over the last 35 years, he says that the work environment is 25 percent of what it takes to make a new company successful. Therefore, he hopes the new environment will help everyone succeed.
Marc says that most new startups spend the majority of their day at work. If they are working in a warehouse in a low income part of town, then they will eventually feel like no one succeeds.
Alternatively, if the startup entrepreneur is working in a swank office setting where successful people pass by on a regular basis, then the startup team feels that they can succeed. While it may just be psychology, Marc says it can make all the difference in the world.
Marc is the author of “They Can’t Eat You” in which he chronicles his own adventures with starting companies over the years. As he states in his book, it takes collaboration to make a new company succeed. Therefore, those joining him at his new location will have access to shared office equipment, banking, marketing and so many other things.
The new entrepreneur will also have access to a variety of other professionals including venture capitalists, graphic designers and marketers. This will allow the startup to focus on getting their company off the ground.
When Marc is not busy working with a startup team, he can be found helping many programs in the community. One of those programs is Habitat for Humanity which builds homes for people who otherwise could not afford them. Another program that Marc supports regularly is his own nonprofit that gives used laptop computers to at-risk youth attending the I Can Academy.
