Chris Burch Explains the Life of ‘Technology-Fashion’ Relationship

A few months ago, Chris Burch wrote an article keying out how technological advancements go hand in hand with the fashion trends. Chris Burch is a renowned entrepreneur who has been involved in a wide range of sectors for the last three decades. Burch is the founding father and the seating CEO of Burch Creative Capital. Burch has helped in the establishment of many different companies particularly in the fashion, hospitality as well as technological sector. In 2004, Burch partnered with his ex-wife in opening up the Tory Burch LLC which he continues to own a large share. Burch also invests on Trademark, a clothing venture owned by two of his daughters. Besides, Burch also invests on E.D, Poppin, and Jawbone.

 

Chris Burch was born in Pennsylvania in March 1953. In his early education, Burch was poor in class and got diagnosed with what could be termed as ‘attention deficit disorder.’ Chris Burch, now a billionaire remembers that it had reached a point that his parents were warned that he had a ‘wandering mind’ and so they should have less hope for him in the future. While in high school, his father used to put him to work on the construction sites and he found the work to be quite tiring and this got him thinking of the best and easy ways to make his life better.

In 1976, Burch and his brother founded Eagle’s eye apparel with only $2000. With the capital, the two partners bought sweaters for $10 which Burch was to sell to his classmates for $15. Their company slowly expanded and within a decade it had managed to make supplies to the national market and record over $140 million as sales. Burch has been in the fashion industry and closely associated with the technology industry for more than three decades. Therefore, the successful entrepreneur is well placed to explain the trends in both the technology and fashion industry.

 

Burch insists that both fashion and technology grow hand in hand creating some positive impact on each other. According to Burch, for example, a protective wear worn around the neck designed by Anna and Terese, cyclist’s airbag shows how technology can rely on fashion in need to protect their final users. Another instance is that of the firefighters wearing the Frontline Glove which were designed by Rajan and Cannon. This particular glove has ensured the safety of the firefighters as they are in a position to communicate clearly using signs hence preventing more accidents in the scene. Designers such as SegraSegra have used tubes of bicycles to make jackets and t-shirts. Emma Whiteside used old radiator copper to make a great gown. According to Burch, such designers portray the way in which fashion-technology relationship is headed, and that is more technological advancements, more fashion trends.

The Rapid Success of the EOS Lip Balms

The modern woman and man is more concerned about using natural beauty products. The concept of natural beauty products is not a new thing. Originally people made their own soap, perfume, and makeup out of mainly natural ingredients. Natural beauty products made a downward spiral when chemical beauty care products proved to be more efficient in some ways and were marketed everywhere. They were sometimes more effective in the short term, but in the long term chemical beauty products may have a negative impact on the health of a person.

The EOS company has quickly grown in popularity. In part this happened because they use natural and organic ingredients to help heal lips. Because so many modern men and women are concerned about using natural beauty care products, the EOS company deliberately chose to create a lip balm that was certified organic. They knew that by dong this they had a bigger chance of gaining more sales then other lip balm companies that don’t use organic or natural ingredients in their lip balms.

Another step the EOS company took to appeal to more modern generations was to change up the look of their lip balm (http://www.ulta.com/smooth-sphere-lip-balm?productId=xlsImpprod3490245). Sometimes the same old product makes consumers bored. This is why some soap companies make different shaped soap. This is why some shampoo bottles are vastly different depending on what company makes the product. The EOS lip balm company took that idea and changed the container for their products so they would have a signature look.

With the right marketing EOS became a $250 million company in just seven years. Instead of using the approach other beauty companies have, they took a leaf out of the book of the YouTube beauty vloggers like Michelle Phan. Michelle Phan has marketed several products on her channel and has even marketed her own makeup line on her YouTube channel and social media pages. EOS lip balm followed that marketing concept and marketed their lip balms with the help of YouTube vloggers. They also asked various millennial celebrities to try out to the product and speak positively about it.

Tapping into the thought process of how younger generations select products they want to buy on Racked has been the defining part of why the EOS lip balm was so successful. They have truly changed the way new products may succeed or fail in this modern world. Read the full EOS history on fastcompany.com.

 

Helane Morrison: A Look At Her Years With The SEC

When Brooklyn, New York native Helane Morrison took over as San Francisco’s SEC administrator it was a signal for local traders and anyone doing business in her jurisdiction to get and keep their ducks in a row. Morrison’s move from the San Francisco District Office of the SEC’s enforcement division to become administrator endowed her with more power to go after businesses with shady practices. That’s what she’s been doing ever since she joined the organization. Her promotion made it possible for her to expand the SEC’s presence and impact.

 

As SEC administrator Morrison took charge of the San Francisco office’s jurisdiction over both examination and enforcement programs. She was the first female chief of the district. Her district included Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Northern California, Northern Nevada, Oregon and Washington. Still, her plan was to keep the momentum the San Francisco office had created going. Since 1996 when she joined the SEC Morrison has overseen many major enforcement actions. Some of those investigations resulted in enforcement action against Dean Witter, California Micro Devices and Republic Securities of New York. During that time her staff doubled and the organizations workload increased tremendously.

 

Helane Morrison was San Francisco District Administrator for 6 years. After working with the SEC for 11 years, she resigned to become investment advisory firm Hall Capital Partners LLC’s chief compliance officer and general counsel. It was another great career move for Morrison. She had practiced law with San Francisco law firm Howard, Rice, Nemerovski, Canady, Falk & Rabkin for 10 years prior to working with the SEC. Her position with Hall Capital Partners enabled her to leverage the skills she gained through the years to ensure the company avoided issues with customers or regulators.

 

Morrison’s work at Hall Capital Partners has been so impressive she was promoted to managing director and made an executive council member. Not bad for a young woman that left New York to pursue a Journalism degree at Northwestern. During her time on the West Coast Helane Morrison has earned a Juris Doctor from the law school at University of California, Berkley. She has also clerked for U.S. Appeals Court judge Richard A. Posner and U.S. Supreme Court Justice Harry Blackmun. Morrison has also developed a reputation as a defender of the rights of consumers of all ages.

 

Helane Morrison has accomplished much and she continues to make her mark in the San Francisco area.

Adam Goldenberg Made The Billionaire Club With JustFab

Adam Goldenberg never seems to stop taking ideas to the next level and building businesses that perform exceptionally. His latest achievement has been building JustFab, a high-end fashion retail company into a billion-dollar business. It’s never really become a “look at me” moment for Adam Goldenberg whose motivation in starting this business has always been customers first. But he certainly does consider it a milestone for him, his partner Don Ressler, and the many employees who have worked hard to make it happen. Adam Goldenberg’s company has taken advantage of online shopping and decided to implement a subscription model for their customers, though they do also have physical store locations where customers can still try on fashion pieces.

Adam Goldenberg got into the marketing profession all the way back when he was in high school in the mid 1990s. Goldenberg first built a company called Gamer’s Alliance, a website that pointed people to websites that had the latest hot games. This company was bought out by a soon to be social media parent company, Intermix Media and Goldenberg was hired to be their strategic development director. But his ambitions took him a lot further than that, and soon he became the company’s chief operating officer at only 20 years old. While at Intermix Media, he met Don Ressler who he teamed up with to form several subsidiaries at Intermix Media. The key company they formed was Alena Media, one of MySpace’s chief advertising engines.

Goldenberg and Ressler left Intermix Media in 2005 after News Corp bought it out, and together with some other former employees they began running some of their own advertising companies. The area they focused on was health and beauty products, most of which were distributed under Intelligent Beauty. But Adam Adam Goldenberg wanted to do even more with their businesses, and one idea they came up with was to build an online fashion company that would tap into the millennial shopper customer base. This was the start of JustFab, and it was given a large amount of venture capital funding from Matrix Partners, Crosscut Ventures, and Passport Capital as it grew. Goldenberg and Ressler also teamed up with some of fashion’s biggest stars including model Kimora Lee Simmons, and actress Kate Hudson. JustFab started out as primarily a women’s outlet, but it’s now bought men’s and children’s divisions, as well as its own shoe stores now.
