"We couldn't have found a better partner to support and believe in our vision
than Macy's. Our currency has always been access and we are excited to create
pieces that are available at an affordable price-point. Our clothes, just like
us, exist somewhere at the intersection of fashion, music, art and popular
culture. Our collections will always be inspired by the kids on the streets.
Our friends.” – Jenné Lombardo, Co-Founder, MADE

MADEFashion Week for Impulse collections are informed by the culture and
style of MADE’s New York creative community. Each translates key trends to
wearable realities, and features classic pieces remixed with of-the-moment
prints, texturesandpatterns perfect for layering and mixing. The collection,
designed to encourage personal style, references “modern school boy”,
“feminine grunge” and “graphics” in its interpretation of silhouettes, which
include “perfect” tanks, skater skirts, and classic outerwear, as well as new
looks in pants, tops and dresses. The MADE Fashion Week for Impulse collection
willrange in price from approximately $39 to $139.

MADE will support the collection with digital content meant to bring “The
World of MADE” alive for the consumer. A bi-annual “Style Guide” will
highlight the “best of the season” in fashion, music and art, while monthly
“editorials” will feature some of MADE’s favorite artists, writers, musicians
and designers wearing each itieration of the MADE collection. These editorials
will be shot at Milk Studios by emerging photography talent. All content can
be viewed on starting April 2, 2013.

“Macy’s is always looking for new ways to help our customers experiment with
fashion, and the partnership with MADE Fashion Week is an unexpected and
exciting choice for us,” said Molly Langenstein, Macy’s executive vice
president and general merchandise manager, Millennial. “They have the pulse on
music, film and photography, and have innovated and inspired the fashion
industry. This collaboration conveys ‘fashion as culture’ in a tangible way
and will provide new and fun ideas for our customer to express herself.”

Customers and pop culture enthusiasts will be thrilled to see MADE Fashion
Week for Impulse advertising shot by well-known photographer Terry Richardson
at Milk Studios in New York City last December. Richardson brings the
collection to life through his unique style of candid photography and edgy
aesthetic. The set was designed to look as though the models arrived to the
shoot wearing MADE Fashion Week items, styled to reflect the models’
individual personalities, and capturing a behind-the-scenes feel. The
marketing campaign will debut in March issues of fashion magazines as well as
in direct mail, online, outdoor and in-store visual.
