Badgley Mischka show attendees use app to respond to runway styles in real time

Entertainment writer

Design duo Mark Badgley and James Mischka make for unlikely tech visionaries.

The designer business Badgley Mischka, which has been going strong for three decades, is renown for its beaded gowns and was recently saluted by for catering to clientele who hark back to “when being a part of high society—or dressing like you were—was a much more important mark of status than the number of Instagram followers you have.”

Yet in what marked the first initiative of its kind in the fashion business, attendees at their fall 2018 show at New York Fashion Week were encouraged to download an app, powered by global software provider SAP SAP, -0.12% that rated the look of each Badgley Mischka outfit appearing on the runway in front of them.

The app, via the aid of beacon technology, quizzed users on whether they “liked” or “loved” each look they saw and supplied information on each garment.

179 users from 17 different countries cast 1,396 votes on Badgley Mischka clothes during the 15-minute show. Badgley and Mischka were watching the interactive feedback on an iPad while the show was in progress. Afterward, the information went public for users who weren’t in the room.

“I was surprised by the results which makes it even more fascinating,” Mark Badgley told MarketWatch. The outfit that received the most “love” votes was a crimson ballgown. A short black dress also proved popular.

“I’m probably the lowest tech guy you could ever meet in your entire life,” Badgley said, “but for all the millennials out there and the way the world’s changing, I find it amusing that probably the most classic old school type of ballgown still reigns supreme.”

He added: “It just goes to show you that some things are true and everlasting. I love the fact that that ball gown was everyone’s favorite because it’s very true to our brand. It didn’t have to be some crazy avant-garde piece that came out of the runway that was the favorite.”

Session two:

Resilience Training on College Campus

This program screens college students in the Boston area for low-level symptoms of mental illness, including depression and dysfunctional beliefs. After evaluation, eligible students are invited to participate in a study in which they receive a four-session "Resilience and Leadership" training. This program is led by two clinical psychologists who work with groups of 10-12 students. These students are also monitored over time via online assessments of symptoms and functioning.

The Resilience and Leadership program consists of training in three well-established therapeutic techniques:

The training is based on the model that greater awareness and compassion for oneself and others improves interpersonal skills and effectiveness, increases a sense of connection with others and promotes overall resilience.

The goal of this project is to determine whether this type of intervention decreases symptoms in the short-term and improves outcomes, including retention in school and academic performance, in the long-term throughout college.

This project is supported by the Ti2 Titanium Woodland Medium Butterfly Pendant Yellow aOY3qPyrov

Resilience Training for the MGH Youth Scholars Program

This program is embedded within the Elements Gold Engravable Bar Necklace Gold Gold Colour nUkYs
, a STEM-focused after school program run by the Center for Community Health Improvement for highly motivated, socioeconomically disadvantaged students. This program admits approximately 30 ninth graders every year from communities around Boston, including Roxbury, Chelsea and Revere.

Students in the MGH Youth Scholars Program attend weekly sessions for all four years of high school. Our portion of this program consists of a pair of two-hour sessions each year focused on mindfulness and self-compassion, mentalization, emotion identification and regulation skills.

Assessments are collected before and after each intervention and annually so that long-term outcomes can be measured.

Skills for Success Program: Resilience-building for At-risk Adolescents

The Skills for Success Program is a collaboration between the Department of Pediatrics at the Chelsea HealthCare Center and the Resilience Program. Children between 11 and 14 years old are identified as potentially at-risk for the development of mental health issues at their annual well child visit with their pediatrician. Their parents are then invited to enroll their children in an eight-session interventionat the Chelsea Public Library delivered by two psychologists, one of whom is a native Spanish speaker.

The program focuses on teaching emotion identification and regulation skills as well as self-compassion.

Data assessing the efficiency of the intervention are collected to help assess the program.
