DIARY ALERT: Cabi will be launching its Spring ’19 Collection in the UK with a two-day pop-up boutique, on Friday 10th–Saturday 11th May, 2019 at 35, Baker Street, London W1U 8EN, open to the public 11am–8pm.

Cabi is a designer women’s clothing collection that is sold exclusively by its unique network of independent Stylists through private, in-home pop up boutiques, personal styling appointments, personalised online styling services, or via cabi’s new cutting edge mobile application, cabi Tap. New collections of clothing are introduced in the Spring and Autumn of each year.

In an age of shared economy and innovative solutions to customer needs, cabi is changing the way women experience fashion, style and service back by offering an alternative shopping experience where a personal Stylist guides and inspires women through a unique styling experience. At a time when the High Street is in decline cabi aims to solve the frustrations of traditional shopping.

More and more women around the world crave a personalised experience when choosing their own personal style and wardrobe, allowing them to fully embrace the woman they are. Cabi provides women across the U.S., Canada, and now the UK with a styling experience that does just that, by providing an ideal shopping alternative to the retail, online, and subscription experiences, all in the comfort of a home.

Lynne Coté, CEO of cabi said:”Our Stylists agreed that the women in the UK  would be enthusiastic about the cabi styling experience – fashion events that include styling advice from a personal Stylist in a social and welcoming home environment – and about engaging with the brand as Stylists if they were looking for a fulfilling side gig or a full-time career.”

WHAT IS CABI?

The fashion

Cabi design collections with high versatility—pieces that mix and match back to previous seasons, giving the customer more bang for her pound, and desire to expand her closet with more cabi pieces that can tie back to what she already owns. cabi is known for its incredible fit and breadth of appeal to a wide range of women.

Cabi’s Fashion Experience

The cabi Fashion Experience, or in-home pop up boutique, is an opportunity for women to experience cabi in person and in a fun, casual setting where the Stylist presents the seasonal cabi collection, sharing educational fashion and styling tips all along the way. After the presentation, women can try on the clothes – not only does the Stylist work with them on fit and style, but the group of friends all end up helping each other. They affirm each other’s selections, encourage each other to step out of their own box and sometimes even steer them in another direction – that’s the beauty of getting to shop with your friends in a comfortable environment.

As the Stylist gets to know the client’s personal style preferences and body, the Stylist is building a real relationship with her clients. She becomes a trusted advisor and women can shop with her through multiple other touch points – whether through the bonding opportunity to gather with friends in a pop up boutique, or a personal appointment, or personaliSed online service, a cabi Stylist helps her client explore styling ideas in a comfortable, relaxed and personaliSed way – when and how she wants it.

cabi’s Women

Cabi has approximately 3,000 Stylists across the US, Canada and the UK, who come from a diverse array of professional backgrounds, ranging from young mums to Fortune 500 executives to surgeons to teachers to police officers – no two stories are the same!

cabi’s Business  Opportunity

Cabi’s business model is simple, balances the realities of busy womens’ lives, and has very real earning potential. Stylists can work as much or as little as they want, and in a way, that will allow them to balance all of the other responsibilities they juggle, while feeling the satisfaction of contributing in a monetary sense to the household.

Cabi provides Stylists with the foundation and confidence they need through proven operations and a steady corporate culture to build their own businesses, without many of the risks of a traditional entrepreneurial business.  We often say, “You’re in business for yourself, but not by yourself.”

cabi’s Culture

One of cabi’s mantras is that “we are about serving not selling, transformation not transaction, and collaboration not competition.” They have been, and will continue to be, extremely strategic about building a collaborative culture, especially as a sales organiSation.

Cabi also creates a sense of purposeful community where employees and Stylists stand for something bigger than themselves, striving to make a meaningful difference in the world through cabi’s philanthropic efforts.
