Title: Wacoal Ready-To-Go Uniforms
Media: Social Media
Country: Thailand
Date Of Campaign: 1 June 2019

Background: Wacoal wanted to launch its new “Go Girls” collection, a collection that is comfortable to wear in every action for girls. But they want to do more than just advertise it as just another bra, they wanted to show their belief that girls should be able to express themselves freely with Wacoal always there to support them.

Idea: As the main target for the products are teenage girls, we thought of how vital it is for them to be able to find themselves in this stage of their lives. But that’s hard to do so in Thailand, even more so in schools where there are strict rules that are there to make them conform. We found that the most tangible symbol of conformation is school uniform – what girls are made to wear since kindergarten all the way to university. So, we created a new kind of uniform that can transform itself into something more so that girls can expresses themselves more freely after school. Then, we launched the idea where we thought teenage girls were, which was also where teachers were absolutely not: Animal Crossings game. Then, the collection became viral on Twitter overnight.

Results: Ready-to-Go uniforms spread like wildfire from school to school, leading into the making of a viral music video. Most importantly, the collection sparked a debate in the society and inspired a movement to rethink school uniforms role led by Thai students across the country. As a result, we gained USD 5.3 million PR value and 174% increase in bra sales on month of the launch.
