How Technology and Fashion Industries Help Each Other Grow

Chris Burch is an experienced entrepreneur and investor in the fashion and technology industries. He has observed the two industries for quite some time, and he has noted that both sectors complement each other. The Ithaca College alumnus believes that technology can be fashionable and fashion can become technologically fashionable.


Current Trends


Currently, designers are using technology to develop fashions that are of high standards and functionality. Anouk Wipprecht, a Dutch fashion designer, believes that marrying technology with fashion brings out endless possibilities. She believes that technology should be a playground for fashion designers to produce functional designers


The Two Industries Helping Each Other


Some notable examples can proof that the two industries complement each other. In the 1970s the boom box and the two deck cassette players were very familiar. However, in the 1980s, the cassette players became more popular after they were incorporated in movies storylines. Likewise, the Google glasses didn’t gain popularity after they were launched. There was a lot of stigma of wearing the glasses until recently when a fashion designer, Diane Furstenberg, decided to help out. She made her models wear the Google glasses while on the catwalk. This gave the glasses an immediate increase in demand. These two scenarios prove that the two industries have notable synergy and the future of them will be determined by how deep they help each other.


Trends for the Future


The future of the two industries will be trying to develop fashions and technologies that protect us and also provide energy. For instance, some designers are making technologically fashionable airbags to replace helmets for motorists. Others are designing gloves that can help firefighter communicate while in their work. Another school of designers is developing clothes and shoes that can produce kinetic energy to power mp3s, watches, and mobile phones.

Thor Halvorssen Creates A Series of Human Rights Events

The career of Thor Halvorssen has taken many different directions over the last few years after the founder and leader of the Human Rights Foundation set out to create a series of events that would make a positive change on the human rights community. Halvorssen has been a dedicated human rights activist throughout his life after being personally affected by the imprisonment of his own father during his time as the diplomatic drug czar of Venezuela; despite his father’s protected status as a diplomat he was tortured by law enforcement officials who he had discovered were playing a key part in protecting members of the drug trade in South America.

The first events Halvorssen took part in as a human rights activist were dedicated to securing the freedom of his own father from imprisonment and were created as a part of a campaign Halvorssen headed along with officials from Amnesty International. Since this first event, Thor has also set out to take part in many different forms of protest and campaign for many different groups and a series of events developed by his own Human Rights Foundation such as the Oslo Freedom Forum.

The Oslo Freedom Forum was first held in 1009 and has been a major part of the calendar for human rights activists, celebrities, journalists, and politicians to attend on a personal and political level. Although Halvorssen is not interested in pushing forward his own political agenda he is concerned with making sure the activists and community leaders he represents have access to people from across the world who can play a key role with the advancement of individual campaigns. The success of the Oslo Freedom Forum has seen the event expand across a range of cities to include the San Francisco Freedom Forum and a further event focused on college campuses that aims to raise awareness of the problems facing groups around the world when people are trapped under restrictive regimes.

Bruce Levenson Moves Forward With Great Strides

The ownership group Atlanta Hawks Basketball and Entertainment LLC (AHBE) is suing an insurance company in regards to a settlement with Danny Ferry, the former General Manager. AHBE claims that while they were the ownership group of the Atlanta NBA team they were insured by AIG. Their policy coverage warranted their business for losses in relation to certain employment practices such as wrongful termination or workplace torts. AHBE allegedly gave notice to AIG that Ferry had made a claim that fell under their policy coverage, but AIG denies having received any notice.

An concealed financial agreement was met between AHBE and Ferry just days before a new ownership group took over the NBA franchise. AHBE feels that a breach of contract by AIG has occurred by their failure to recognize the notification and pay for the claim that, they understood, fell under their paid policy coverage. AHBE primary controlling partner was Bruce Levenson, the former co-owner of the Atlanta Hawks Team and Philips Arena.

Levenson had decided to sell his share of the Atlanta Hawks franchise back in 2014, and had hired Inner Circle Sports and Goldman Sachs to work the deal. The firms had overpriced the evaluation of the team which led to several potential buyers stepping away early, and Levenson was left with a much lower sale than he had anticipated. Levenson was certainly not put out by the deal, being a long time business man he remains resilient and continuously pushes forward in his career.

Levenson is the co-founder and partner of United Communications Group, a company he help start back in 1977. He has been the director for TechTarget Inc. and, a successful IT company, since 2015. He has also been an important part of the Electronic Publishers Association and the Newsletter, serving on their Board of Directors. He is also an active philanthropist reveals PR Newswire.
