You Can Never Be Overdressed 

Product placement is the crux of entertainment marketing. When you think of product placement you may imagine Coke cans, Audi cars, etc. But there is one placement that is often overlooked—fashion.

The entertainment industry provides many opportunities for fashion brands to be placed in your favorite TV shows, films, and music videos. Designers can loan their clothing to popular productions for high visibility and give productions an air of luxury. It's a win-win! In this blog, Hollywood Branded recaps some of our blogs featuring fashion and product placement in the entertainment industry.

Fashion Brands And Product Placement in Music Videos

In today’s world, where media is exploding, product placement in music videos continues to be a common method of advertising for brands. Unlike advertising that we are used to, product placement in music videos has more of a subliminal influence to consumers through popular culture. And, of course, for well-known artists, there is the price tag which can definitely be expensive.

We all know that if we see a celebrity that we are a fan of associated with a particular brand, we have a higher chance of purchasing that same item to try and be more like them. In music videos, it is the same thing. In this blog, Hollywood Branded explores several successful fashion brand partnerships with artists in music videos.

The Top Fashion Brands In TV Series

TV offers brands of all categories a phenomenal launching pad to showcase their products being held by, in a scene with or even dressing the leading actors and actresses on screen.  This practice is typically referred to as Product Placement, and it's one we write about often, as it's a base to build our agency services from.  There are two approaches - either loaning product to a production to help them save on costs of purchasing, or money being paid to a production to create a bigger storyline around the product. 

For fashion brands, many opportunities exist to simply loan product, as their high dollar value means massive savings to TV storylines that require that air of luxury to be shown on screen.  And for years, fashion brands have taken advantage of this opportunity in some of the most popular shows on air. In this blog, Hollywood Branded shares an infographic and research by Winkelstraat on the top fashion brands in TV series.

And it makes perfect sense. Celebrities are their own built-in advertising machines. 
While they may not be willing to really go that extra mile with celebrity endorsement deals, where each tweet or photo shoot needs to be pre-planned and locked in a contract - they often leverage themselves to the max for their own lines.  And their names are so instantly recognizable that fans flock to own what they believe their coveted favorite celebrities designed.
