The synergy between technology and fashion is in every way a blessing to the world and as such deserves to be celebrated. Before diving into the need to appreciate this union, it is important we give kudos to those men and women who brought it to the attention of the world. Chris Burch happens to be one of these fellows.
Mr Burch is an entrepreneur per excellence. He has been dictating the pace in different industries as far back as his days in college while he was only a teenager. In fact, before he got through with college, he had become a millionaire, not by inheritance but as a reward for handwork and business acumen. Burch is worth listening to as one can only give what he has.
Burch success transcends just an industry. In fashion, he made millions of dollars as profits; in technology, he was not a push-aside; in real estate, he was the one calling the shots. His current company, Burch Creative Capital, has clients from top companies in and out of the United States.
Having spent a couple of decades on earth, Burch explained the trend that characterizes the synergy between technology and fashion. According to him, people in the 70s could do anything to acquire the boom box as it helped them carry their favorite tunes and stations wherever they wanted. Two decades after, technology and fashion came together again to give the music world a better masterpiece, the Walkman.It was the first time many people got to know what personal music experience looked like. The Walkman had to give way for something better before the turn of the century, the iPod. This has been the trend,always an improvement on the previous within short intervals, a good omen by all standards.
The fashion world is doing things unimaginable with the help of technology. Almost all successful fashion designers today are technologically inclined. The high innovative and functional standards in modern fashion cannot be separated from technology. Anouk Wipprecht,the renowned Dutch fashion designer, was in full support of this position when she uttered the following words:”technology is like a playground, a place of experiment, and as you dive deeper and deeper into the technology and systems, it rewards you with endless possibilities.”
People in the fashion industry keep extending the boundaries of the industry. Attraction has always been the main emphasis of fashion, but fashion products like airbag for cyclists have extended the emphasis to include protection from heavy objects. Today, many cyclists prefer the airbag to a helmet because both protects the head from injuries but the latter have a edge with its better visibility of the surroundings when worn.
The synergy between technology and fashion has lead to the production of cloths designed to capture kinetic energy for the purpose of powering appliances such as watch and mp3. The idea has it root in the understanding that movement can be converted into electrical energy.
I can keep on mentioning novel and unbelieving things this synergy is doing in our world all day, and the most beautiful part of it is that it is non-stop and always an improvement on the previous. It is time we start celebrating as our world can only be blessed for it.
