  4. 4. Larissa Hadjio style: her artistic influences are turned into wearable bags that aim to avoid clichés, such as overpowering and distracting logos and designer stamps. SS14 saw the launch of her monochromatic collection ‘Sugar White Series,’ based on inspiration from a sculpture she designed entirely out of sugar. Meanwhile, other collections, ‘Deep Sea’ and ‘Diamond Vision’ do exactly what they say on the tin— sculptural designs with functional elements executed in playful manner. Her otherworldly bags crafted mostly from leather are definitely worth carrying on your arm! I create wearable objects, both playful and elegant. And I love clear structures with a twist that go against the obvious. Could it be called “Dark Disney?”- Larissa Hadjio
  5. 5. Target Audience - Mid 20’s- Mid 50’s - Predominately female - Someone that likes to experiment and likes to wear fun clothes and accessories; someone curious - Willing to spend more on products that are of high quality and originality - Interested in buying not just from high street - Expressive - Follow cutting edge bloggers and read directional opinion forming magazines such as Dazed & Confused, Love, Wonderland and i-D (in order to keep up to date with fashion and culture) - Love fashion - They buy bags from Oliver Ruuger, Wendy Nicho - these are two of Larissa Hadjio’s competitors due to their luxury elements and playful designs.

  8. 8. Inspiration- Miami 1970’s
  9. 9. Using Larissa’s sea creature bags we will take this forward to create a tropical theme. Using LH and WAH nails to develop this.
  10. 10. Questionnaire We decided to conduct a questionnaire in order to find out more about other potential new audiences for Larissa in order to widen her market. From our questionnaire (as seen on the next page) we asked various questions and from our findings (seen in the pie charts below) we found that the age group 20-30 were most interested in purchasing Larissa Hadjio’s bags in comparison to the 30+ and therefore decided to use this 20-30 year old market as our target audience for our marketing concept. We will now use this market and create a concept based around this age group however still blending Larissa’s identity values and consumer target with ours. Would you consider purchasing one of Larissa Hadjio's bags? Age 20-30 Yes No Maybe Don’t know Would you consider purchasing one of Larissa Hadjio's bags? Age 30+ Yes No Maybe Don’t know

  13. 13. Who are WAH Nails? WAH started life in 2005 as a little London-based fanzine about girls in hip-hop, championing those that were contributing to the music and clothing scene. In 2008, founder Sharmadean Reid had decided that she wanted to create a nail salon where you could get "Whatever you wanted on your fingertips" and of course, it would be called WAH Nails. In February 2010, WAH Nails opened for business in Topshop Oxford Circus. Other stores were quick to snap them up and they opened in Harvey Nichols in Dublin later on that year as well as giving Japan a taster of handpainted nail art by doing a party at Opening Ceremony Tokyo. WAH has painted nails in cars, bars, clubs, at the Grand Prix, in an Airstream, in Japan, at festivals, at The Brits, for celebrities, for fashion people, for kids, for music videos, at work and at home. You name it, they’ve done it. All in the name of happy nails. They’e grown from a staff of 2 to a team of twenty and in 2011 they look set to grow even bigger…
  14. 14. Why are WAH Nails suitable for LH? We have chosen to collaborate Larissa's brand with WAH nails as it shines a new light on her products allowing them to appeal to a younger audience as well as the brands existing clientele. Having worked with the likes of Vogue, Marc Jacobs, Harvey Nichols and at many fashion events we feel WAH will still be suitable for Larissa’s brand and her already established target market. Also, Larissa and WAH are both united through their love of Dalston, as both brands were born here, which we feel is even more suitable for the collaboration- an aspect that Larissa agrees with herself! Larissa’s background in fine art is beautifully displayed in her accessories and this is why we feel the WAH brand, which began life as small fanzine in Dalston is the perfect partner for expanding Larissa’s brand! With a huge number of followers the WAH customer could potentially be lifetime clients for Larissa. The younger audience are a lot more active with social networking and blogging. This concept has the ability to enhance Larissa business in many areas, opening new doors that could lead to brighter futures for the brand and its customers.

  16. 16. Nail designs at event: At the event WAH Nails will have their own nail station. The guests can get their nails done with a wide range of tropical and LH nail designs. WAH’s nail station will be in a beach cabana, here the guests can be whisked away to the Maldives with their cocktails! I created a nail wheel and have provided examples of a few types of nail art that guests could get on the day. The nail art are collaborative designs with LH & WAH nails. The brightly coloured and fruity designs will mirror the ‘Deep Sea’ collection’s tropical theme that will take place at the event.

The house has played host to many special guests including politics evenings with Russell Brand and live performances with Plan B.
  20. 20. Shoreditch house is the perfect venue for our event: -It’s in the heart of Shoreditch, which is infamous for its East End creative energy including Larissa and WAH Nails! - The house offers comfort and that homely feeling but in the most chic way. We feel that both Larissa’s and WAH Nails audience will both feel at home here. -  Shoreditch House is like the grown up play ground for all of Brick Lane’s finest characters; enhancing our events playful but chic aesthetic. - We will use the roof terrace and inside to transform the rooms into our tropical Deep Sea paradise and make use of the outside swimming pool

  23. 23. DJ for event: - Mia Moretti, 28, and Caitlin Moe, 25 (who now goes by the name of her “alter ego, musical brainchild, BFF, and twin sister. She is a devil child on a tight rainbow leash”, Margot- also known at ‘The Dolls’), - both from New York they began their careers at first separately -  Caitlin’s violin mixed with Mia’s tracks bought some of the most original sounding music, giving familiar tracks a new and unheard edge -  they have performed at major fashion events like Paper Mags parties, Rurla, Saks Fifth Avenue and Purple magazine… -  the pair are the coolest and quirky DJ’s in town!
  24. 24. The Doll’s in the press: stylish, quirky & cool divas!
  25. 25. The Doll’s in the press: stylish, quirky & cool divas! We believe ‘The Dolls’ (Moretti and Moe) will provide us with the perfect balance of music and style for our event. The pair are regulars at fashion parties from New York to Paris to London! Not only that but their image behind the decks is as important as the music they will be playing and with this in my mind they tick every box with their fun quirky dress sense but still keeping it high end chic. With Caitlin giving a live violin performance we feel this will bring an element of class to our event but also a relaxed and cool vibe with will work well with our beach theme, both relaxing and danceable.
  26. 26. Drinks at event: Vita coco (non-alcoholic) Cocktails (alcoholic)
  27. 27. Drinks at event: What is Vita Coco? Vita Coco's an all-natural, super- hydrating, fat-free, cholesterol-free, nutrient-packed, potassium-stacked, mega- electrolyte coconut water! Rihanna has leant her name, her body and face to coconut water brand Vita Coco; the Bajan Beauty is the new face of their ad campaign, We feel that because of the endorsement by Rihanna and other young celebrities that this drink is the ideal drink to have at our event. Representing our target market of 20-30 year olds and further projects a widening of Larissa’s target audience. Also the coconut water fits in with our tropical themed event perfectly!
  28. 28. Drinks at event: …Cheers! With associations of the beach. sun, sea, coconuts, pineapples and just everything tropical, cocktails are the perfect alcoholic drink for our tropical event! Cocktails contain one or more types of liquor, juice, fruit, sauce, honey, milk or other flavorings allowing our cocktails to be as fun and exciting as we want!
  29. 29. Drink menu for event: We also wanted to include a cocktail menu that would be at the event. Each cocktail is named after Larissa’s ‘Deep Sea’ collection, including a comical sentence about the drink. By naming the cocktails after Larissa’s bags we wanted to continue on Larissa’s fun and quirky style and show this off further to the guests!
  30. 30. Food for event: We used Larissa’s shrimp handbag as inspiration for the catering and decided that the event would serve a little snack- prawn cocktail. Initially the snack would be something to munch on while the guests sip on their cocktails enjoying the lively atmosphere.

  54. 54. ! SWOT- Concept STRENGTHS: -very strong theme which runs from LH collection ‘Deep Sea’ -interaction and get involved (e.g. nail bar) -buy a product that is exclusive to the event (mini purse) – in keeping with unique aesthetic -the venue is situated in East London where most of her client base would be -using Wah nails to broaden her target audience, bringing in a younger market (have a HUGE following already, so when WAH start advertising this -event it will be a good promotional tool for LH and could potentially widen her audience- mentioned in the breif -continuing on LH ‘Deep Sea’ collection applying it to beauty/food/décor – we have kept LH style and collection theme but have expanded on the original concept (still keeping LH in mind) WEAKNESSES -price/budget- might be expensive -getting hold of DJ and venue- might not be available for dates -some elements could be perceived as too cheap for LH -the colloboration product could be too expensive to produce the goody bags -venue is weather permitting OPPORTUNITIES -new audience for LH -WAH nails get further promotion -could turn into a yearly event if successful -maybe could encourage a new range aimed at a younger marker for LH (expansion for LH brand) THREATS: -this could damage the brand, making it seem lower market? -could be a loss of earnings -WAH nails might overshadow bags- more about WAH than LH !
  55. 55. ! Conclusion We believe our concept is ideal for expanding Larrisa’s target market as it shines a new light on her products allowing them to appeal to a younger audience as well as the brands existing clientele. Associating Larissa’s merchandise with WAH nails will rein in the new generation of creative’s who have slowly started to begin a movement of young people who appreciate art culture and all things unique, this is the generation that seek inspiration in anything they can find. Larrisa’s background in fine art is beautifully displayed in her accessories and this is why we feel the WAH brand which began life as a small fanzine about those that were contributing to the music and clothing scene and providing a space for a new wave of street smart fashion, is a perfect partner for expanding Larissa’s brand because it has a generation of followers who could potentially be life time clients for Larrisa, it is important to encourage the younger audience in their unique style and we believe by introducing them to Larrisa’s brand, it will not only do that but it will also expand the labels following as the younger audience are a lot more active with social networking and blogging. This concept has the ability to enhance Larrisa’s business in many areas, opening new doors that could lead to brighter futures for the brand and its customers.
