In order to launch its new seamless tights Golden Lady wanted to create a high impact campaign to increase brand awareness. By using social media Golden Lady could grow its reach and own online conversations around tights and related topics.


For the launch of its new seamless tights Golden Lady ran a high impact campaign involving its new brand ambassador Miley Cyrus. The campaign integrated TVCs and social media to reach its target market. Golden Lady created a video ad campaign starring Miley Cyrus that premiered during a television ad break during X Factor Italia.

This was great timing for the brand as there was an active Twitter conversation around the show and ads aired during the broadcast.

The brand also ran a Twitter campaign around the hashtag #RockYourLegs which gave fans sneak peeks, teaser Tweets and promoted video content before the official launch. After the launch Golden Lady continued to use #RockYourLegs so the brand stayed front of mind.


This campaign highlights the effectiveness of running a social media campaign alongside a TV campaign. Using Twitter to promote video content to extend its core campaign to targeted fans and by capitalising on the buzz of the X Factor Italia the campaign reached a greater audience.
