Progress in the Desigual Event
301 people arrived at the first 'Undie Party' event with the hope that they were in the first 100 in the queue
The event created a hype amongst communties with some people beginning to queue as early as 1.00am
The event has doubled with the amount of attendees at each 'Undie Party' that Desigual Stores have held
Buzz Created by event
The Undies Party
The aim of this particular campaign was to 'Arrive half naked - leave fully dressed'
Desigual therefore offered out one of their stores to the first 100 customers who arrived in their underwear to the event
These consumers were then given an opportunity to pick out one top and one bottom to create an outfit of their choice
The company has hosted Undies Parties all over the world in major cities.
These include LA, New York, London, Berlin, Prague, Asterdam and Madrid
Consumers want a Desigual event in their area
Consumers love the range of clothing and the fact they can shop online
Negative feedback from people who are not able to shop online in their countries i.e. Australia
Buzz created from London and New York "undie" events
The value of the outfits may exceed over $1,000 per participant and for those who do not make the first 100 recieve a 50% discount on their purchases for the rest of the day
In additon to Desigual's method of 'atypical marketing' they also use marketing methods through customer interaction through social networking sites
