In December 2018, the company had expected Q2 revenue to be in the range of $360 million to $368 million.Active clients grew 18% year-over-year to 3 million for the quarter ended January 26, 2019. The subscription-based styling service firm projected Q2 active client count to be relatively flat quarter-over-quarter in Q2.

For the fiscal year 2019, which ends on August 3, 2019, Stitch Fix lifted its revenue target to a range of $1.53 billion to $1.56 billion, representing an annual growth of 25% to 27%, buoyed by the recent top-line momentum, ongoing client demand and engagement trends.
