I spend most of my time contemplating about how to make the womenfolk happy. I like making people feel good about themselves”, according to prnewswire.com.
Second, on how Chris Burch manages to balance between maintaining active roles at the many brands and scouting new talent, he stressed on his ability to stay intense. “I don’t know how people sleep knowing they have something to do; it is much easier to just intensely get to it. He thinks highly of new experiences and luxury and considers this a future trend that investors should tap into. “Things are going to very fast and slow, but luxury will remain to be critically crucial. Nature, travel and experiences are the new luxuries”, see https://thenewsversion.com/2018/03/chris-burch-nihi-sumba-island/.
