Opening campaign

Big opening in Portugal

Forever 21 was about to arrive to Portugal, and aimed to have an impact on Portuguese youth from the first minute onwards. The challenge was simple: to communicate the inauguration of their first store, generating buzz around the brand and insuring that people would come for the big opening.

In order to communicate the big opening, especially to young consumers, we wanted to show the brand’s adaptability to different interests and lifestyle- a brand able to wear different personalities. Being Fashion a creative area, where graphic content is extremely relevant, we invited 6 top Portuguese instagrammers from different creative areas – Fashion, Design, Photography, Illustration – and we challenged them to wear their different personalities, creating their own lookbooks.

Forever 21’s big opening in Portugal was amongst the best ones in Europe.

The concept created for the opening campaign and all the communication strategy created by Lift were of an enormous success, with impressive results even when in comparison to other openings in Europe.
