Kate Hudson launched her fashion brand, Fabletics, back in 2013 and it is safe to say it has been very successful.

Drake, one of the most popular rappers in the 21st century, also has his fashion brand. October’s Very Own is what it stands for as it is referring to his birth month. This luxury streetwear line is fantastic, with its iconic owl trademark logo.
