Shein dropped a body inclusive virtual fashion show
Think elaborate sets featuring giant columns, Escher-esque stairs, a beach and even a catwalk in outerspace. There appeared to be no expense spared in its casting and filming for its SS22 virtual summer presentation.
In a press release Shein said its live-stream programme featured models from around the world, “showcasing the season's hottest styles and trends in fashion.” The concept was to celebrate body inclusivity, highlighted by its hashtag #sheinforall, with different body shapes and sizes shown throughout the film.
While 17 minutes is far too long to engage consumers for a digital fashion show with countless looks and accessories, the use of green screen tech and behind the scenes footage gave the format a unique and interesting slant. And surprisingly, the styling wasn’t half bad either.
