Selfridges launches biggest ever beauty campaign with Google+ partnership

Selfridges has launched its biggest beauty ad campaign, which will include a partnership with Google+.

of

The campaign will form Selfridges’ biggest marketing investment of the year and will encompass digital and outdoor media, as well as in-store events and activities.

As part of the project, Selfridges will hold a programme of debates and talks about beauty. These debates will be hosted by a video blogger and streamed through Google+ Hangouts to allow customers who cannot attend in person to get involved.

There will also be a Google+ photo booth in store where customers can get their picture taken. Customer photos will be used in the window of the Selfridges Oxford Street store window and on the Selfridges website.

Customers will also be able to share their pictures on social media and encouraged to use the hashtag #beautyproject.

The ad campaign features non-professional models and was shot by the German photographer Norbert Shoerner, working with the production company Kiosk Productions and stylist Sophia Neophitou-Apostolou.

The outdoor breaks in London and Manchester this week and in Birmingham on 12 May.
