Aldi launched its ecommerce site in the world’s most competitive environment, China. To succeed, it needed to create buzz and site traffic in the initial few weeks of its launch. The idea was to turn its quality food collections, into a fashion collection and showcase it to a handpicked audience of food and fashion bloggers, chefs, designers and journalists. Their respective social posts and PR write-ups created both traffic and sales. The event was also live streamed to allow a larger audience to participate and purchase immediately made possible with our TMALL partnership.
7.48 Million watched the show live. 5.15 Million interactions. 1.35 Billion impressions. 16 times the daily average of orders taken. Resulting in a sales increase of 128%.
Aldi the German retail Chain has entered China rather late in the game in the most competitive market in the world. Aldi needed to generate buzz among key opinion leaders and the general consumers for its ecommerce site. They achieved this by creating the first ever food inspired fashion catwalk, presenting its food collection through the lens of a fashion show. Foodies also feasted themselves on the collection, via a tasting menu made from the pieces in the show. This first ever fusion of food and fashion has generated for Aldi the PR it needed for a successful launch.

We created the first ever food inspired fashion Show using Aldi’s products that have been transformed into wearable couture. We also live streamed it to a larger audience where they can also buy directly what they saw through Aldi’s TMALL (China’s largest ecommerce site) partnership.
