Intelligent Beauty was just the start of bigger and better things to come. It was via this venture that Don Ressler and Goldenberg launched TooFab. Launched in 2010, JustFab raised substantial capital and went on to become an established brand. By April of 2012, JustFab boasted of over 6 million worldwide members. JustFab continued to be successful in its own right and served as a strong foundation from which to launch several successful “sub-brands”, like Fabletics. JustFab also acquired the online shoe subscription business ShoeDazzle, which continues to be a hit with online shoppers.
