My New Competition

Amazon echo look, $199 . Watch the video first!!! In case you haven’t read the news recently, the so-called Amazon effect is putting a lot of retailers out of business these days. Is it also going to put personal stylists and image consultants out of business? Need to put coconut water on your shopping list? Ask Alexa. Need to know which necklace to wear with your outfit? Ask Alexa. No, seriously.

Most fashion editors and journalists may have an iPhone and iPad on them at all times, but they aren’t usually invited to Apple’s launch events. This year was different. The first hint that something fashionable was brewing at Apple came when the company hired Angela Ahrendts, former CEO of Burberry, as well as Paul Deneve, former CEO of Yves Saint Laurent. After that the Apple watch was pretty much the worst kept secret in fashion and technology put together. The launch of three distinct collections – Apple Watch, Sport and Apple Watch Edition – mimicked the tiered distribution strategy of …

What a perfect opportunity to show off how stylish (and clever) you are! Luckily, designers are constantly coming out with new lines of cases for our tablets, laptops, and phones.
