Dell And Marie Claire Bring The Latest Fashion From The Catwalk Direct To Your Laptop
MC Dell Fashion week hub Marieclaire.co.uk is bringing the glitz and glamour from the catwalks of Paris, London, Milan and New York to life with the launch of a dedicated micro-channel for September’s Fashion Weeks, sponsored by consumer electronics giant, Dell.
Visitors to the micro-channel will get insider reports of all the fashion action through Marie Claire’s up-to-the-minute updates from the shows and after-parties, including video footage and photo galleries from New York, London, Milan and Paris.
Marie Claire’s reporters will be blogging, sharing gossip, and rounding-up the must-have trends live from each of the fashion capitals using the stylish and compact Dell Inspiron Mini 10. In addition, visitors to the site can discover Marie Claire’s tips for the hottest places to stay, eat, see and be seen in each of the four cities.
Dell is taking advantage of the sponsorship to ignite interest in its fun, fashionable range of Inspiron and Studio colour laptops in a visual and creative way. As part of the deal, Dell will roadblock the micro-channel and will have a bespoke video player developed for the site, opening to look like a Dell Inspiron laptop screen.
Dell will also have branding on the Marie Claire Fashion Week widget, which the website is introducing for the first time, so that visitors can receive the latest fashion week updates direct to their desktop.
Richard Johnstone, publishing director of Marie Claire, says: “Marie Claire’s Fashion Week coverage via marieclaire.co.uk is always incredibly popular. This season, through our collaboration with Dell and our developments on platforms such as iGoogle, our daily coverage of the catwalk shows and fashion parties will reach a bigger audience than ever before. This provides Dell with an exciting opportunity to showcase the new Inspiron and Studio colour laptops to huge numbers of upmarket style-savvy women.”
Marieclaire.co.uk editor Carla Bevan adds: “September is always an exciting and busy time for the Marie Claire team and this season we’ll be providing our readers with even more up-to-the-minute gossip and news from the four fashion capitals. With our new Fashion Week widget, they’ll also be able to access our updates from their Facebook or iGoogle pages, as well as via our daily newsletter.”
The partnership was brokered by Rebecca Duggan and Cheyne Hall at IPC Southbank Advertising, Matthew Finch at Dell, and the Dell team at MediaCom.
