Setting a new standard

Target turned to New York’s ultra hip The Standard hotel last week as the venue to set a new standard for event marketing and the promotion of brand equity. The hotel and the street in front of it were the venue for the Target Keleidoscopic Fashion Spectacular, which offered a look at the fall styles from Mossimo, Merona, Converse One Star, Xhilaration, Pure Energy and Liz Lange.

Target took over the trendy Manhattan hotel in an area known as the Meatpacking District to stage a Cirque-Du-Soleil style, seen-and-be-seen type event that blended light and sound with lots of a beautiful people who gathered in the street to watch as models paraded by in Target clothes, and 66 dancers appeared behind them in the hotel’s multi-colored illuminated rooms.

 

The whole affair was over the top and had to cost a fortune, but such stunts give Target its brand essence. The event can be viewed on Target’s Facebook page.
