Get ready for an influx of CES posts (OK like 2 posts)! I know it’s been nearly a month since CES but I did want to share my experience - but from the view of stylista who has a love affair w/gadgets!
First of all, I want to talk about how people lump me under the geek/nerd category because I love going to CES. I’m not going to deny that I am a bit geeky - but think about the gadgets you use yourself. Aren’t you excited for those? Your tablets, your phones, your cars, your laptops - those are all found at CES. Not only that, but the cases, luggages, and other various accessories that make your gadgets all the more visually pleasing. Those of us who get to go to CES, get to play w/all of this before you do. We have the advantage of knowing which products will be worth the purchase. Call it geeky if you will, but don’t forget you geek out over it too.
Now I’d like to focus on how some people who consider themselves part of the “tech” or “social media” communities, fail to see how much fashion relates to technology and social media. By fail, I mean they don’t see how much more the fashion community uses all of these technologies and mediums and how successful they are at it. They are the ones to quickly drop in on the technology and social media markets, if it means making their label/line that much more “AH-mazing!” They are very forward thinking. Just check out this video of Azealia Banks performing at Karl Lagerfeld’s house. Notice the amount of tech used. The music equipment, cameras, and the several iPads being used to document the event. And of course this was blasted out on several social media platforms.
That said, fashion and style were definitely present at CES! From the window displays at Griffen, to the eyewear line at Polaroid, and of course there were quite a few other CES attendees who weren’t afraid to shine out amongst the suits! Check out how cute @VampireKitten’s gauges are! They’re little skeletons! But of course I had to dress up for every occasion as well. I had outfits for the convention and for the nightlife.
A separate post will be made soon for my daily outfits. I just wanted to get my thoughts out there about my love for technology and fashion. They are a great pair.
