Fashion and technology are some the top topics of discussion and interest in nowadays culture. Seemingly unrelated, they have been intertwining and becoming more related to each other. Fashion designers have been increasingly incorporating tech elements and motifs into their designs while technology and gadgets have been focusing on presentation and elegance to make them not only more functional but more fashionable as well.
In one of his latest articles, Chris Burch traces back the journey of the 70s boom box from what it used to be- chunky and heavy, to what it is today- a sleek modern gadget that is only a fraction of the size of its ancestor. He also talks about various fashion designers and the newfound ways to create something unique out of the most unorthodox supplies such as inner tubes of bicycles or recycled radiator copper. Technological and industrial supplies come together with fashion to create a new-age synthesis that is the future of both fields. An amazing creation is clothing that creates kinetic energy through movement and through that energy one could charge a watch, mp3 or another small gadget. This extremely recent concept has come from letting one’s imagination loose, unrestricted from the conventional notions of what fashion and technology are like.
Chris Burch shows a strong fascination of this futuristic blend of fashion and technology and understandably so for he has a background in both fashion and technology. Other fields he has an interest in are real estate, home design, décor, stationary and much more. He is a serial entrepreneur and the founder of Burch’s Creative Capital – a company that encases a few of Chris Burch’s most popular brand names.
Essentially, Chris Burch values imagination and living in the moments of all things. He sees our time on earth as an opportunity to demand change and get people to where they need to go. His entrepreneurship-savvy mind started thinking of new ideas when he was still a teenager, and he saw opportunity in almost everything he came across. That allowed him to grow into a successful investor with a mind open towards bright and fresh ideas. His many interests only show how many concepts and ideas he has been housing in his mind and his impressive portfolio serves as proof that he is not afraid to go out and put his heart into what he really believes in.
