Letter to the future | Kevin Poon

Inspirational words from an entrepreneur

To keep spirits high and creativity strong, Polimoda has asked its community of fashion industry experts to write about the future.

My thoughts on the future are still optimistic, lately staying home and working from home has really made me think about life — all the friendships and relationships I have developed all these years from traveling and doing things, the way the next generation will grow up will be so different than how we grew up and just learning about that and how it plays into the future is what I have been thinking about lately. 

Fashion might be able to live online now, with avatars being more prominent and how everyone has an online version of themselves, we can download outfits online to showcase the latest fits, have online concerts from your home live streamed to your sofa, music festivals are online; these are the types of conversations and things I think could be interesting for the future. 

Art is now consumed from home as well, with artists doing VR studio visits and Q&A’s online, this could be the way of the future, where you can have experiences like traveling without leaving your couch instead you just put on V/R googles and experience everything as it would be in live view. 

I sincerely also hope companies can be more socially responsible in the future instead of just thinking of ways to increase profit or bottom line. We need to start putting resources into our karma bank account, so not only can we care about people, but also about the earth and the place that we live in, helping one another and just making the world a better place than when we were born. 

Staying positive is winning half the battle, showing up now can be just dialing in, that’s the future we are living in and one of the best quotes that I like to refer to is:

“The future depends on what you do today.”
― Mahatma Gandhi
