"As Phat Farm celebrates its ten-year anniversary, technology is really changing the way people interact and even the way they dress," said Russell Simmons, founder of Phat Farm. "Technology and fashion are converging, the mobile phone is becoming a fashion accessory, and it's bringing people together in ways they never have before."
