With experience and expertise of 40 years, Mr. Christopher Burch is not your average entrepreneur or investor. Mr. Christopher Burch has mastered the art of investing and entrepreneurship. Some of his great accomplishments include owning his company called Burch Creative Capital, helping to the success of Ellen DeGeneres and also being an investor in Eagles Apparel, a company that started with a capital of two thousand dollars to now being worth more than 165 million dollars.
These are just but a tip of the iceberg concerning the accomplishments of Mr. Burch. Chris Burch’s entrepreneurial skills and success started in 1976 when he was still a student at Ithaca College in an undergraduate degree program. At that time, he began Eagles Apparel with his brother. Later, he sold it to the Swire group at 165 million dollars.
As you can see his entrepreneurial thirst started at a very tender age. He was super interested in fashion and how technology could be integrated into fashion hence him starting Eagles Apparel. For a very long time fashion and technology seemed two parallel entities that could never meet at a common point but with advancements in both sectors especially the technological sector, this is no longer the case.
Currently, in catwalks, Google glasses are being accepted which is against the norm that used to exist. Diane Von Furstenberg, a top fashion designer, has been championing for this adoption. Some technological gadgets have also become fashionable and attractive, for instance, the Beats Pill or the Beats by Dre headphones are being adopted by the fashion industry. The Beats Pill, Beats by Dre headphones, iPhone 7, iPod or the SwegBoard were both made after the consultation of a fashionista or a designer.
They used the creativity of a fashion designer and the intellect of an engineer to make such magnificent devices. All these devices show that the parallelism that existed between fashion and technology is no longer there. Mr., Burch is concerned and interested in this relationship. According to Mr. Burch, this is just the start of this relationship between fashion and technology. As years’ pass, this relationship will grow into until they become inseparable. Another instance of the interaction between technology and fashion is in the making of Pseudomorphs and DareDroids.
One recent innovation between fashion and technology is in the making of helmets for cyclists with airbags fitted into the helmets.https://www.engadget.com/2016/08/31/the-future-storefront-how-brick-and-mortar-retail-will-look/
