Honey Birdette, the fast-growing Australian intimate apparell retailer, announced plans to expand its physical footprint in the United Kingdom, and its online presence in the United States. The company has benefited from tremendous growth in these markets, including a 374% increase in sales to the US in the past twelve months. It is this success that has spurred Honey Birdette to launch a newly redesigned US e-commerce site and to open up to 40 new stores in the UK by the end of next year.
The new e-commerce site aims to improve the customer experience by being tailored to customers in the United States and offers free shipping for orders over $50. The founder has indicated that it does plan brick and mortar expansion to the US in the near future.
The sensual retailer’s planned expansion in the UK includes ten locations currently slated to open in Liverpool, Westfield Stratton, and Newcastle. This adds to the company’s footprint of over 50 stores in its native Australia.
The company was founded by Eloise Monaghan who serves as creative director and provides the vision for the unique brand, which is centered around catering to and empowering women. Their featured collections feature women’s names, and the employees of their stores are “honeys” who are as critical to the boutiques as the merchandise.
Honey Birdette is benefiting from a more mainstream acceptance of S&M as books and movies such as “50 Shades of Grey” earn general popularity and attention. One can find products for both men and women on the HB website, and the brand’s social media outlets push much more than product advertising; the company appears to aim to encourage a lifestyle embodied by its brand.
The world is changing day in day out. Not only are individual selfish about their own interest, but also ignorant of their present and future. As sorry as this is, sadly it is the state of affairs in most countries all over the globe, but there is hope. One organization that seeks to restore hope to humanity is Avaaz, a US based organization.
Avaaz is a word meaning voice in most Asian, Middle Eastern and European languages. This US-based civil organization was established in January 2007 with the sole democratic mission to close in the paradigm shift between the world in which we are living in and the world we expect to live in the future. This organization equips millions of people from all walks of life with action based information to deal with the pressing national, regional and global issues ranging from corruption, conflicts, animal rights, human rights and poverty.
How does Avaaz work?
Previously, many international activism groups had to build a physical presence in each country that they operate. This was costly and even harder to reach scales to make a difference. However, things have changed thanks to the rising development in technology. Now with the vibrant Avaaz online community, people are able to capture the attention of issues as they arise. From the initial issue of concern solutions and different forms of advocacy can step up to meet the matter brought forth.
The organization is responsible for funding media campaigns and direct actions, lobbying different governments, signing petitions and organizing protest and events to see to it that the various views and opinions of its members are addressed effectively. Founded on a strong set of human values Avaaz is our sure passage to the world we all desire to live in the future.
