Hanes Hosiery

The Launch of the #LEGSIE

To increase awareness of Hanes Hosiery’s features and raise the brand’s social voice, CRC created a call-to-action for NYC influencers.the NEW #Selfie - exclusively for legs to kick off legwear season at the posh Penthouse of the SOHO Mondrian Hotel, for the #CheersForSheers Soiree, which elevated the brand to sky scraping heights.

Strategy / Tactics

  • Created the hashtag #CheersForSheers and leveraged the hashtag #LEGSIE to give legwear looks a dedicated social sharing space to own; similar to #selfie and #LOTD (look of the day)
  • Associated Hanes Hosiery legwear with social media sharing by aligning the brand with style ambassadors and social influencers; Michelle Madonna (35k followers) and Samantha Lim (17K followers)
  • Entertained and enticed soiree attendees with #HosieryHunk and celebrity DJ Brendan Fallis
  • Gifted attendees with the new Hanes Hosiery Fall 2014 collection so the influencers could continue their social sharing after the soiree
