The saying that knowledge is wealth has again extended its relevance to two great industries, technology and fashion. Wealth is not gotten just by working hard all day, there is a place for knowledge and its rightful application. I discovered that many of the men and women who first spotted the synergy between technology and fashion are the ones smiling to the banks in both industries today.
The case of Chris Burch is full of lessons for all. This man discovered the inter-relationship between these two industries while he was a college boy. He was bold enough to start a fashion firm with his brother bringing in as much technology he could afford into his company. He ended up becoming a millionaire before leaving college, a teenager for that matter. Already the secret was in his custody, and he was bent on making the most of it.
Whatever industry Burch chooses to venture into, he always turns a monumental success. He made it big in fashion. The millions kept flowing in while he was into technology. He was the pacesetter when he moved into real estate. His current company, Burch Creative Capital, boasts of a formidable and impressive brand of portfolio.
The secret is not ambiguous, it begins by appreciating the fact that the combination of technology and fashion will always resulted in a trend that improves on the invention of the immediate paste. In other words, there can never be a better last year when technology and fashion work hand in hand. For instance, music lovers were overwhelmed with the boom box of the 70s. That was the only way they could carry their favorite tunes and stations about. They had to forget about the boom box with the coming of the Walkman, a far better device for great personal music experience. It took only a decade for an improvement on the Walkman to surface with the name iPod. This trend has never change, always an improvement on the former.
You are likely never to meet an accomplished fashion designer that will tell you technological is optional in the world of fashion. A renowned Dutch fashion practitioner painted the true picture of things in 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.”
Exploit makers in the world of technology do not handle fashion lightly either. They understand that without needed popularity, there cannot be patronage, and business ill fold up. With fashion on their side, this hurdle can be easily surmounted.
It is thus obvious that to have a competitive edge and be a success either in technology or fashion, the synergy existing between them must be well understood.
