Meet Adam Derry, the Man Putting Tech into Gucci Suits

Wearable technology is the future, I think we can all agree on that. Adam Derry was the mastermind behind will.i.am’s fully functional cellular Gucci suit at this year’s Met Gala. The suit had the capabilities to text, call, play music, and many more features that you wouldn’t believe. The hanger worked as a charger, giving a whole new meaning to “charged up.” Adam started his creative brand development agency, ADBD, back in 2007.

He is now a pioneer in the fashion world, pushing culture forward every day.

These questions also apply in reverse. As a consumer you have many choices available to you. You need to be aware of factors that influence your decision making, often without your conscience awareness. 

soon-to-be-published research paper adds a spin to two tent-pole consumer behavior models; extremenessaversion and the paradox of choice.

The study suggests that increasing the number of mid-range choices may stimulate a decision to purchase a more expensive item. And, that providing a large number of fairly standard job postings may stimulate a candidate to apply for a more unusual job function or compensation plan. This is interesting, potentially useful, and contradicts prior…
