American Designer Karis Dowe Influencing Luxury Fashion With Brands Worldwide

Published

on

Over the last decade we have seen social media grow rapidly in importance.  According to the August 2017 Global Digital Statshot from We Are Social and Hootsuite, 3.028 Billion people actively use social media – that’s 40% of the world’s population. Inevitably these people look up to influencers in social media to guide them with their decision making.

Shazir Mucklai, the founder and CEO of Imperium Group, had a chance to chat with Karis Dowe on the future of luxury. 

“The bulk of social influencer marketing today occurs in social media, predominantly with micro-influencers, and blogging. Industry experts and thought leaders such as journalists can also be considered influencers and hold an important position for brands. Then there are celebrities. These were the original influencers, and they still have a role to play, although their importance as influencers is waning,” says Karis. 

In the early 2000s, many had argued that the luxury fashion industry had taken a downward dive in terms of creativity and design. In a time where “normcore” fashion seemed to be the new standard, and fast fashion brands began knocking-off every simple luxury collection in a matter of minutes there was a piece of detail that had been missing from luxury fashion for a while. Enter Karis Dowe, the American designer that has been resurrecting creativity in the shadows of the luxury fashion industry, designing for some of your favorite luxury brands for close to the last decade. 

Karis, born in New York, entered the world of luxury fashion in early 2012 serving as the brand director at the luxury staple Helmut Lang. Since then, Karis has designed for a number of luxury fashion brands including Off-White, Hugo Boss, Miu Miu, Saint Laurent and so on throughout his decade-long career. Many other renowned luxury brands based full collections off of his original creations. His exact color palettes, graphics, original fonts and garment silhouettes have been directly mimicked by many luxury brands within the past years. Karis has truly influenced the world of luxury fashion behind the scenes.

In just the last decade, people like Virgil Abloh, Heron Preston, Demna Gvasalia, and Marcelo Burlon have created notorious luxury fashion brands, some of which Karis has designed for and influenced. Now, Karis is breaking ground with his promising new New York-based luxury label Wildphase, that has already deemed to set new standards and solve problems such as sustainability and counterfeiting through new technology advancements.

With years of experience designing for some of the world’s most prominent luxury brands, Karis is taking the future of luxury fashion into his own hands emerging as a full force creative director and bridging the gap between technology and luxury fashion. With his Wildphase label set to launch in early 2020, expect to experience luxury fashion design with no limits to creativity.

Influencer marketing grew out of celebrity endorsement. Businesses have found for many years that their sales usually rise when a celebrity promotes or endorses their product. There are still many cases of businesses, particularly high-end brands, using celebrities as influencers.

The problem for most brands is that there are only so many traditional celebrities willing to participate in this kind of influencer campaign, and they are unlikely to come cheaply. The exception will be if a firm makes a product that a celebrity already likes and uses. In that situation, the celebrity may well be prepared to use his influence to say how good he believes the product to be. I am sure many musical instrument producers benefit from musicians playing their instruments by choice.

Building a Reputation from Scratch: Kishmel Eagar’s Story

Published

on

If you’ve ever tried to build an online business, you’ve run into the same obstacle as everyone who succeeded; it’s not easy. To completely start an agency and in under 8 months drive that agency to pump out over 5 figures in revenue is a feat worth admiring. This article is how Kishmel Eagar did just that with ‘Entry Points Media’ and entirely manufactured a credible business reputation from scratch. 

His Story 

Kishmel has spent the past year building his agency from nothing; he’s spent countless hours going through trial and error. A majority of the obstacles Kishmel happened to face were actually self-inflicted such lack of certainty in the longevity of an online business such as his. With thoughts like these looming in kishmels mind in her first few months as an entrepreneur, its no wonder most people give up. What Kishmel quickly learned was that it was going to take much more than focus, discipline, and commitment, you’re going to have to get creative and be ready to invest the time, money and energy that a business takes to build.

The young and tech-savvy entrepreneur was able to grow his name in his industry rather fast due to his niche being very specific. How Kishmel retained his clientele base, and all his future growth was mostly due to the extraordinary customer care he showed. Clients of his have raved about the customer experience, honesty, and integrity of his business and even the strategies he’s put in place to help his clients business grow.

If you’ve ever found yourself working with an individual online that has never lived up to what he promised you to know the headache most consumers go through, a big priority of “Entry Points Media” is to end that hassle of B2B buying experiences. 

Key Takeaways 

A few key points I would like to further touch on when talking about ‘Entry Points Media’ is their promise to consistently offer value to their clients and all prospects as well. Kishmel Eagar, all in all, is a brilliant and dynamic entrepreneur who is capable of delivering services to change the way you do business and put you on the road to success.

Bryan Quaranto, CEO of ProprioX is taking over the world at only 23 years old

Published

on

ProprioX is the newest global corporation to look out for. I had the opportunity to interview CEO, Bryan Quaranto to discuss how he launched his first global corporation at only 23 years old. Bryan not only donated to the Disrupt Foundation, sponsored the upcoming TEDx Condado but he also came with us in person to help donate laptops to college students in Puerto Rico. Bryan is creating a Good Future by recognizing it in the world.

Bryan Quaranto is a well known entrepreneur who has created multiple brands across the United States and Puerto Rico. Now he is taking on the rest of the world as he launches his first global corporation, ProprioX. Helping others along the way, Bryan is focused on developing a real culture in his company called the Honey Empire, a popular term coined by serial entrepreneur Gary Vaynerchuk, for extra sweet results. In his new company, Bryan Quaranto will be working on with small business and large corporations looking to develop their brands for the future.

Tell us your story. How did this all get started?

I’ve been building websites since I was 10 years old. I grew up in a small apartment with my mom and brother after my father died when I was 13. School wasn’t for me, I was not a good student. I knew I was going to be successful, but college was not the answer and neither was selling drugs, I thought that there had to be a different route, and I said to myself why am I going to work under someone else my entire life when I can be my own boss? So to create a better future, I launched my first company, Dreamwood Media at 19 years old. After about 3 years of developing and working on Dreamwood Media, I decided to level up, globally, so at 22 years old, I launched my first global brand and soon to be corporation ProprioX.

When I realized I was bridging the gap between problems and solutions. People and companies have problems, I am here to solve them.

I have built multiple successful brands for all different types of audiences and I am continuing to progress in my line of work.

We are focused on brand engineering. We offer consulting and marketing services. ProprioX is a new corporation designed and built as a parent company to serve all the brands we own or operate. Dreamwood Media is a media company owned by us that serves ProprioX. ProprioX is a financial arbitrage machine. ProprioX: Creating a better future by recognizing it. We offer 4 services: Brand Engineering, Social Communications, Community Organization, and Corporate Supervision. Each service is designed to help different audiences.

Bryan thank you again for coming on Disrupt Magazine and for what you have been doing in the community here in Puerto Rico.
