Design News: Leading Fashion Brands Embracing Online Videos to Support Marketing Campaigns

Mashable recently published a great article about leading fashion brands embracing online video as part of their regular marketing campaigns.

Citing Kate Spade New York as an example of this burgeoning design trend, Mashable writer Lauren Indvik states, “The web has given brands an opportunity to cheaply host and distribute video content for the first time, and many are now developing video content to bolster their online and offline retail businesses.”

Citing a July survey published by Pew Research Center, Indvik says more than 3 billion videos are viewed per day on YouTube, whose monthly traffic hovers around 800 million unique visitors. Nearly three-fourths of U.S. citizens have visited a video-sharing site in their lifetimes, and more than a quarter visit video-sharing sites on a daily basis.

This is great news for students earning a digital media degree at FIDM/Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising, who will likely have new opportunities in the online video industry as technology evolves even further.

Below, check out three fashion brand video campaigns filmed using different styles: Kate Spade New York‘s Live Colorfully campaign, Rachel Roy‘s Move Spring 2011 campaign, and Europe-based s.Oliver‘s Casual Spring/Summer 2012 campaign.
