What was the business objective behind making this campaign?
Fastrack has always been known for its edgy and bold styles that set us apart from the others. Setting newer trends and keeping it fresh for our audience.
This time around the focus to come up with a fresh approach for young girls, as we observed a shift.
The occasions for girls have evolved from a bare basic college, sporty everyday look to a bling look for casual meetups over brunch and lit up, elegant party nights.
Creating a need and the flexibility of different looks, exploring a range of styles that cater to different occasions.
The thought here was to create something exciting for the chic young girls of today, reconnect with this evolved set of audience with an all-new exclusive signature collection from the house of Fastrack.
Increasing the share of voice for the brand and driving consideration.
