This year, ABOUT YOU became a partner of 'Germany's Next Topmodel' for the first time. Serlina, a contestant on the show, is now one of the faces of a new TV ad being run by the online fashion shop. Serviceplan Campaign X in Munich was responsible for the ad. Another ad for the ABOUT YOU Style Agency – which was created in September – has been running since 10 March.
Munich, 31 March 2017 — This year, ABOUT YOU became a partner to the highly successful TV show, 'Germany's Next Topmodel', for the first time. In the episode on 30 March 2017, a model was cast for a new TV ad and thus a new 'idol' was selected to represent the online fashion shop. Of the 14 contestants, Serlina (aged 22) stood out with her positive outlook: "Serlina has a very open, friendly look and is a great fit for our brand, as ABOUT YOU is synonymous with individual personalities and inspiration," explains Head of Idols Julian Jansen, who made up the panel together with the ABOUT YOU idol and top model Franziska Knuppe as well as London director JJ Keith. Serviceplan Campaign X was responsible for devising and realising the new ABOUT YOU TV ad. In addition to taking the lead role in the ad, the 22‐year-old from Koblenz, Germany, can also look forward to collaborating with the online fashion shop as one of their idols.
The advert, produced by Neverest and directed by JJ Keith, was shot directly on the day following the casting in Berlin. In the ad, Serlina looks for the perfect dress for her upcoming date. With help from the ABOUT YOU Style Agency, she finds exactly what she's looking for. The 30-second ad is being shown on the German TV channels ProSieben, Sat.1, RTL2 and Sky and is scheduled to run for three months.
Another Serviceplan TV ad for ABOUT YOU has already been running since 10 March:
