HANES HOSIERY AND MAIDENFORM SHAPEWEAR AND HOSIERY KICK OFF FALL SEASON AT COLLEGE FASHION WEEK
Brands partner with Her Campus as exclusive hosiery and shapewear sponsors
Hanes Hosiery and Maidenform shapewear and hosiery have announced the brands’ sponsorship of College Fashion Week 2016 presented by Her Campus. Through this new partnership, Hanes and Maidenform will supply collegiate runway models with fall styles to seamlessly complete each look.
Runway shows will take place in four key markets across the United States, kicking off in Boston and traveling to New York, Chicago and Los Angeles. Hanes Hosiery and Maidenform shapewear and hosiery will showcase fall 2016 collections at interactive booths during each event and provide samples to college students in the four cities.
Products on display will include the new Hanes Hosiery Cool Comfort with a wicking benefit in the panty and leg, which has high purchase interest among college-age students according to recent HanesBrands consumer insights research, and Maidenform Sleek Smoothers, which create a seamless silhouette under the perfect interview outfit.
“This multi-branded sponsorship allows Hanes Hosiery and Maidenform shapewear and hosiery to engage with more than 3,000 consumers – on the runway and through in-person sampling opportunities,” says Tricia Bouras, vice president/general manager of shapewear and hosiery at HanesBrands. “We’re also excited to have StyleWatch on board as a media sponsor, providing both print and online support that will boost exposure to an additional 15 million consumers.
“The Her Campus audience is right on target for both the Hanes Hosiery and Maidenform brands to engage the millennial customer,” Bouras continues. “Hanes Hosiery and Maidenform are focused on inspiring college women to feel confident and look their best as they begin careers, and we’re thrilled to partner with Her Campus to celebrate college women across the country.”
In addition to the Cool Comfort fabric, Hanes Hosiery will also debut Comfort Flex wide waistband on Seasonless tights with X-Temp technology, which ensures all-day comfort. New fashion styles include shimmering Lurex tights, Mod Geo, Chevron and Dot tights, each with unique colors and patterns that stand out in a crowd.
“Hanes Hosiery provides classic and feminine options, as well as fun fashion styles to perfectly suit every college woman’s interests and needs,” Bouras notes. “From job interviews to nights out on the town, Hanes Hosiery offers exactly what everyone looks for in legwear without sacrificing style for comfort.”
Other Maidenform shapewear products on hand will include Bodybriefers, Waistsnippers, Hi-Waist Boyshorts, Fat Free Dressing Camisoles and Sleek Smoother Tanks, all of which will featured on the runway during College Fashion Week. The brand will also bring Sexy Shaping Hosiery, which include a design accent and now includes X-Temp technology that adapts to body temperature.
“The Maidenform brand exudes confidence, energy and spontaneity, and the Maidenform woman has a vivacious spirit, a clever wit and a captivating charm,” Bouras explains. “The brand is a perfect fit – from the workplace to formal events.”
