A post shared by Chris Burch (@jchristopherburch) on

Burch realized this a while ago and he has been using the knowledge to his advantage, choosing to instead invest in humans behind the product rather than brand concepts themselves, read (Thenewsversion.com). Burch believes that this is just an extension of the increasing reach of the digital world: there is only so much marketing that you can do on the internet before you are overlapping with everyone else.

While branding might be ‘over’ according to Burch, creating quality products that appeal to specific demographics isn’t. Burch has long stated that he likes to deliver products that make people feel nice and that are why he is so focused on investing in luxury products geared toward women, according to prnewswire.com. Burch has a history of working with specific products geared toward specific demographics and he has found huge success with big name brands like ‘ED – by Ellen DeGeneres’. Now, Burch is focused on working with companies like Skin Laundry and Dirty Lemon in order to extend his reach into the luxury wellness demographic.
