Victoria Beckham launches her first “CAR”

Victoria beckham the famous singer turned designer did not stop it all at dresses. Along with her superstar husband, she crosses the boundaries and enters into designing of cars, by creation of Range Rover’s off-road vehicle, the “Evoque”.
With her talent she makes it very simple to say that a designer cannot be classified as an apparel designer or jewelry designer, a really talented designer is the “creator of all”. A creative thought can do anything and that’s what makes a successful designer different from others.
Her new creation is nothing but just what she would want to drive. It’s a creation by just being true to herself. Though it was not easy. This involved a long research work, but just to learn more and know what she want in her car, she strolled down into the knowledge for not only cars, but also old and new, boats, planes, movie stars, different locations etc. thus her inspiration cannot be marked.
She thinks that though women will drive this car, it has a masculine edge and thinks it’s very cool.

The special version “Evoque” is featured with exclusive, hand-finished matt painting, the first for a Land Rover-typed vehicle. The rose gold intonation on the grille and gloss black cast alloy wheels adds to beauty to the vehicle.

On entering, there are two couple seats of vintage-inspired leather, rose gold intonation and pairings of black lacquer, surfaced aluminium and mohair. Adding on, the vehicle has bespoke luxury accessories, as a four-piece leather luggage set, a hand-sewn leather wallet for the owner’s manual signed by (Victoria) Beckham.

This special version costs 80,000 pounds ($129,000). Only 200 will be produced, the first will be elapsed in China as early as October.

She maintains her policy of limited production in cars also like dresses and her bags, to make her clients feel special as she does not want to get big too quickly.

Does your brand need a celebrity?

The celebrities do really help a brand. Being more certain, the cricket strikers and the gorgeous Bollywood artists occupy the majority part while the rest is filled with famous models and some are chosen based on the theme of the brand. Under all brackets, irrespective of the brand, many are trying to bank on the huge appeal by the celebrities. As shortly as a new face mounts on the popularity chart, advertisers queue up to get them splashed over.

The accruement of celebrity endorsements can be justified by the following advantages that are bestowed on the overall brand:

Establishment of Credibility: Approval of a brand by a star nurtures a sense of trust of that brand among the public, which is true in case of new products.

We had the Shah Rukh-Santro campaign. At launch, Shah Rukh Khan endorsed Santro which created its recognition in the competitive market.

Ensured Attention: Celebrities ensure attention of the target group by breaking the bestrews and making the ad and the brand more noticeable.

PR coverage: Being a main reason, Managers discern celebrities as hot topics, which create high PR coverage. A good example of integrated celebrity campaigns is the Spice Girls, one of the World’s leading pop groups, who have not only advertised Pepsi, but also made their presence in product launching and PR events. Indeed, the pairing of celebrity-company as The Spice Girls and Pepsi, are covered by most media from television to newspapers.

Higher degree of recall: People tend to commensurate the personalities endorsing with the brand, which increases the recall value. Golf star Tiger Woods has endorsed American Express, Rolex, and Nike. Actress Catherine Zeta-Jones goes on with T-Mobile and Elizabeth Arden. 007 Pierce Brosnan promotes Omega, BMW, and Noreico.

Associative Benefit: A celebrity’s preference for a brand speaks an influential message, ‘As the celebrity benefits of the brand, so do the consumer will also.’

Mitigating a tarnished image: Succeeding the high-pitch worms controversy, Cadbury India wanted to restore the consumer confidence in their products and so appointed Amitabh Bachan to put back their appearance. Last year, when the pesticide issue shook up Coca-Cola and PepsiCo resulting in negative press, both had peak profit damage control advertisement to feature most expensive celebrities. Aamir Khan led the Coke fight back and ensures the product’s purity. Shah Rukh Khan and Sachin Tendulkar together referred to the ‘safety’ of PepsiCo.

Psychographic Connect: Fans generally love and adore their favourite celebrity and using this advertisers use dazzling artists to impact on these feelings to get them inside the brand.

Demographic Connect: Different stars appeal differently based on the demographic segments (age, gender, class, geography etc).

Mass Appeal: Some stars have universal appeal which is proved good and attract masses towards them.

Rejuvenating a stagnant brand: Dabur India roped in Bachan for an estimated Rs 8 crore to intent the imbue of fresh life into the slacking chyawanprash.

Academy awards 2012 !

As the nominees and winners settle down to debate who really deserved to win the Oscars 2012 we are more occupied with who walked the red carpet in style this year.

The Oscar night is when the Hollywood stars shine the brightest. As each one of those stars walked down the red carpet we catch a quick glimpse of their style. First up is the hot Hollywood Pitt pair. Contrary to the expectations the couple failed to get noticed much this year. Jolie turned out in asymmetric gown all in black with what looked like a plain look without jewels. Brad Pitt turned out in his Tux, long hair combed back he was too presentable with Jolie.

Moving over t Clooney and stacy pair. They were complementary o the red carpet. With stacy’s shimmering attire countering clooney’s typical black suit. Stacy’s earring is worth mentioning the collection of diamonds on it was ravishing.

Daring Viola opted to go green this season. The silk and crush combo worked well in her favor. The green earring and the bracelet were not the only accessories; the clutch was also another investment that the Hollywood hotties are ready to make.

Emma stone chose to camouflage with the carpet in her blood red free flowing gown. She resembled a bundle of red roses in that designer wear with a bow at the neck. Her neatly set hair and she over sized bracelet went well with the dress. She was one star who could not have been missed at the Oscars.

J Lo was stunning on the red carpet. In her patterned, shimmering gown with the designs congregating at her waist that dress looked as though it was sued on to her. The patterns were chosen to emphasize her curves which are her pride. J Lo was one actor everybody’s eyes were glued on to. And eyes popped when the actor turned to reveal the designer back.

Not many colours played on the ramp. The ladies chose to go with shades of crème while the guys stuck to the traditional tux. We will later declare the best dressed and the worst dressed on the red carpet after analysis so follow us.

With the increas in these trend and fashion awareness we see many increments and how more and more people are opting for branded products and they portray a clear picture of how much they in love with designer wear. As its unique and one of a kind, with very rare repeats. It highlights your personality.

Besides, rapidly growing popularity of boutiques selling designer and local wear showcasing finished and ready-to-stitch garments and trendy dress material is another growth driver for designer wear industry.

Then the next contributor for blast of designer industry is the film industry which is all about branded cloths and designer wear being exhibition by the individuals every day, and followers love to follow the trend.

“Currently India’s share in the global designer wear industry is a minimal 0.32 per cent but is likely to reach about 1.7 per cent by 2020,”
