VML Qais, the Indian arm of VML Network, has been named the digital agency of record (AoR) for StreetWear India, following a multi-agency pitch held in December 2014. The agency's mandate is to create a strong emotional connect with the target audience, translating into increased usage and consumption.
StreetWear is a cosmetics brand owned by Revlon. It entered the Indian market in 2004. In October 2014, the brand was re-launched with new packaging, reinvented formulation and a new brand story. It aims to become the 'go to' brand for millennials, and to appeal to the TG in ways beyond a favorable price point.
A Revlon spokesperson says, "StreetWear as a brand is aimed primarily at the 18-25 year-old woman in India. Digital, therefore, becomes our lead channel to build relevance and affinity with this audience. We have worked with VML for Revlon and are confident they will turn around digital for StreetWear as they did for Revlon."
VML is a global marketing agency that delivers forward-thinking ideas and solutions for the world's most influential brands, including ICICI Bank, Mahindra & Mahindra, Revlon, Dell, INSEAD, Changi Airport and Mattel.
