Gothenburg, November 5, 2019 - NA-KD is known for its hundreds of successful Influencer collections. Now the fashion brand takes the collab concept one step further and creates a collection together with its community. NA-KD by YOU is the brand’s first crowdsourced collection where fans are both designers and models for the products. The collection will be released November 17.
NA-KD is releasing a completely crowdsourced collection based on poll answers from their over 2.3 million strong Instagram community with a global reach. Using Instagram Stories the brand asked its followers which product cuts, styles, colours and names they prefered. This became NA-KD by YOU - a 100% co-created collection with key pieces in neutral tones.
The collection includes some of AW19’s biggest trends: puff sleeves, faux leather and tailoring. It also contains everyday favourites in the form of cosy knits and satin must-haves. The colour scheme is sober with off-whites and black. For accessories the community chose a mix of pearls, chunky chains, padded headbands and statement hair clips.
NA-KD is also making its fans the faces of the collection. Using social media, NA-KD let its audience compete to become models for the campaign photo shoot and a live runway show. In total, 10 young women from all over Europe (Germany, Sweden, Poland, Netherlands, Denmark, UK and Spain) were chosen to model the collection.
CEO and Founder, Jarno Vanhatapio comments: “At NA-KD, our customers are always at the center of everything we do. So for us it made perfect sense to include our community in the product development process. Co-creating collections based on their feedback gives us a better idea of what they want and makes them feel more involved in building the brand with us. So it’s a win-win.”
The prices for the collection range from €27.95 - €78.95 and will be released on na-kd.com November 17.
