The Opportunity

With its loyal customer base, Hudson had experienced rapid historical growth, with significant opportunities in international and e-commerce.

The Partnership with FCP

FCP recruited world-class executives to develop infrastructure and augment the existing team. We launched a branding campaign featuring Georgia May Jagger, cementing the brand’s status as an international leader in fashion. We put in place essential infrastructure — both human and production — to ensure consistent growth.

We invest in innovative companies that have the potential to change the fundamental nature of the consumer markets they serve.
