The American Heart Association’s Go Red For Women came to Ignite with a need for live coverage, content creation real-time media optimization at their upcoming Red Dress Collection fashion show in NYC in Feb. 2016. Celebrities were the models of the show, all wearing red gowns to represent the fight against heart disease. The goal was to increase brand awareness, promote the event’s livestream and motivate donations during the show.


We sent a team of Igniters to the event, and as the show began, we were able to capture incredible images from the celebrities’ entry-point onto the runway, creating an incredible experience for Go Red For Women’s followers. Our nimble approach allowed us to prioritize special moments, create our own opportunities for capturing and editing photography and accentuating the show’s impact. Knowing which celebrity would perform best on which platform based on target was also a huge plus.

Additionally, the strategic usage of paid media across the various channels added to the success. The channels were optimized in real-time based on spending efficiencies and content purpose across Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
