Not everyone has an eye for aesthetics. The ability to choose colors, shapes and designs that may at first glance look quite disparate but when paired together prove to be stunning is a kind of intelligence that some people are born with and that others have to develop over time. The ability to curate disparate visual and physical elements in a way that is pleasing to the eye is an incredibly valuable skill that has many applications. Some people apply their talent for finding or creating beautiful things to the world of fashion where they can either construct beautiful clothing that pushes the boundaries of style or guide other designers towards a larger vision as they seek to complete a collection. Other people apply their eye for beauty towards the world of commercial real estate where they develop properties and through construction and interior design transform them into abodes that other people will want to reside in. Entrepreneur Christopher Burch has spent his career applying his eye for aesthetics doing both.
As many people will probably remember, he helped to co-found the women’s clothing line Tory Burch, which is named for his former wife. The line has risen to prominence as a brand that is synonymous with the best of American fashion. It is a fashion line that has been able to walk the line between offering designs that are incredibly sophisticated and also very wearable. While the success of Tory Burch marked an important milestone for Christopher Burch it was actually just one of many successes that he has had in the world of fashion. Many years before he ever helped to launch Tory Burch, Christopher had started his own fashion line known as Eagle’s Eye Apparel. The line, which was a joint venture that he had entered into with his brother, ended up being a big success. Together, the Burch brothers were able to transform Eagle’s Eye Apparel into a company that was worth $165 million. For updates on Burch recent timeline activities, click on crunchbase.com
Even though Burch has been a very successful fashion entrepreneur Chris Burch is turning his eye for aesthetics to an entirely different field: real estate. Burch has been involved in real estate ventures in the past. These ventures have involved teaming up with other design and real estate professionals to develop properties in Argentina. He has also dabbled in residential real estate projects in locales like Florida and New York. These days however, one of Burch’s most prominent and successful real estate projects happens to be on the other side of the globe. In 2015 Burch and a hotel mogul opened a resort in Indonesia known as Nihiwatu. In 2016 Nihiwatu had the honor of being named one of the best hotels in the world by Travel + Leisure Magazine.
