Chris Burch’s Vision for the Future of Technology and Fashion

The fashion and the technological scene may sound like two very different fields at first, and rightfully so. One focuses traditionally more on an aesthetic and appealing aspect while the latter traditionally was occupied by utility and practicality. As both advance towards the future however, their once traditional aims have become enriched and enhanced. In an Engadget article, investor Christopher Burch explains, “Over time, technology becomes fashionable, and fashion becomes technologically fashionable”. We see fashion designers recycling old material and creating gorgeous pieces in order to create sustainable products. Technology, as can be seen with the advent of the recent Apple Watch, continues to put an increasing focus towards how it looks and fits into a person’s overall wardrobe appearance. As both fields continue into the future, it will not be surprising to see them continue to play off one another, to share ideas and inspiration and to enhance the final aims.
