Summary of the Campaign
C&A offered a solution to a big problem among women: insecurity when shopping.
After all, what woman never wished for a little help choosing the right clothes?

We decided to offer our consumers help from a giant network of people.

We put the clothes of the new collection on Facebook. There, users could click on 'like' for the items they liked better.

These 'likes' were added up in real time on the hangers of the actual piece of clothing in the store, helping thousands of women in the difficult mission of choosing the ideal clothes.

In this campaign we were able to materialise the 'likes' on Facebook, altering the relationship between society and the online world. The 'likes' that were previously restricted solely to the Facebook environment, became a decisive selling factor for the consumers, which arose the curiosity of various important communication channels around the world.

The Situation
The choice to strengthen the collection via Facebook came not only due to the public’s great attachment to the site, but also due to the simple mechanics the network offers: the possibility of giving one’s opinion by simply clicking a button.

We created an application, which could be found on C&A fan page, that represented its new collection and allowed people to 'likes' the items they liked.

The 'likes' were tallied on hangers that held the items in the store making it possible for the consumers to get a real time update at the exact time they were making the purchase.

The Goal
The goal of the campaign was to help solve a big problem among women: uncertainty when shopping for clothes. After all, women love to get some advice when choosing an outfit. But we went further, providing them with advice from a gigantic network of people.

The results could be verified immediately right at the store where consumers were able to see how many 'likes' an item had before purchasing. That didn’t make the sale, but helped immensely as advice.

The Strategy
The goal of the campaign was to help solve a big problem among women: uncertainty when shopping for clothes. The strategy was to help women leave the store with an item that had already been endorsed by a great number of people, making their decisions much more appropriate since the item had already been 'screened and approved'.

For that we explored a habit that most women have, mainly when it comes to fashion: every woman loves to get some advice when choosing an outfit for herself or someone else.

The action started on Facebook through an application found on the C&A fan page. The app was launched on May 18th.

Three days later, after a viral video announcing the campaign was released, the items which already featured the number of 'likes' on the actual hangers were in the C&A flagship store at Iguatemi Mall in Sao Paulo.

After the items were featured in the store, the campaign went on for another two weeks both on Facebook and at the point of sale.

During the campaign, more than half of the inventory sold out, but the 'likes' were still being tallied in the application.

Documented Results
With this action we were able to materialise Facebook’s ‘likes’, changing the consumer’s relationship with the digital world. The ‘likes’ left their Facebook environment and became a sales argument at the C&A stores.

C&A not only offered a curatorial service, but it also gave power to woman to be fashion curators too.
