We enlisted Grazia magazine to help us bring Westfield to life. Forty-six editorial team members set up shop at Westfield for one week and produced an entire Westfield-themed issue at the scrutiny of shoppers. We ran a cover gatefold and a 16-page editorial piece weeks before the launch. We road-blocked grazaidaily.co.uk and created a competition where users could experience Westfield first-hand. A bespoke iPhone application included a directory and map for them to find their way around Westfield and fashion/beauty news from Grazia´s team. Further editorial partnership helped women to see shopping at malls “in a new light”. Conde Nast offered a £2,000 shopping spree. We created a glossy cover-wrap for the Evening Standard and polybagged ES magazine and ran a contest inviting readers to submit pictures of London “in a new light”, via a custom microsite, at the time we projected Westfield imagery on key West London landmarks.
Insights, Strategy and the Idea:
Westfield, the pioneering shopping and leisure destination, opened in London’s W12 in October. With over 265 brands, 25 styles of cooking, art and events, style advice and hands-free shopping, Westfield is as much a meeting hub as a place to shop and eat. The economic downturn, people’s negative perceptions about malls and competition from Oxford and Bond Street made our challenges even harder: • Appeal to the hard-to-reach professional and educated urbanite • Drive traffic and convey Westfield’s benefits • Incorporate Westfield into London’s everyday landscape • Make Westfield the #1 shopping center in the UK The affluent female target prefers to experience things first hand and is the trendsetter amongst friends. Our influencers are 25% more likely to read magazines for the latest styles, and magazine readers generate three times the WOM. We got magazine and journalists on-board to convince these mall-rejecters that Westfield deserved their time and money.
