NEW YORK -- July 24, 2014

Pop singing sensation Cody Simpson was announced today as the latest artist to
join the American Rag “ALL ACCESS” campaign kicking off July 28 and continuing
through November. American Rag, available only at Macy’s, launched the program
in February, bringing its customers access to exclusive music, videos,
sweepstakes and in-store appearances from some of today’s hottest rising
stars. Simpson’s collaboration with ALL ACCESS for American Rag will include
everything from social activations to marketing and advertising collateral
that will feature Simpson modeling American Rag’s latest looks for the fall
season.

“I’m excited to team up with American Rag and connect with my fans through the
ALL ACCESS campaign,” said Simpson. “This program is an all-access pass,
giving me the opportunity to share music, photos and behind-the-scenes details
with my fans, and to even perform and meet them in person. It’s a great mix of
fashion and music that they can’t experience anywhere else.”

Australian native Cody Simpson first exploded onto the worldwide music scene
after uploading videos of himself singing on YouTube, and he will continue
getting social with his fans through the American Rag ALL ACCESS campaign.
From takeovers of American Rag’s Instagram account (instagram.com/raggedmag)
to blog posts on RaggedMag.com that offer insight on his latest projects and
musical process, Simpson will be sharing special content with fans throughout
the program. The campaign will involve a variety of customer-engaging
activations including:

In-Store Appearance

On Nov. 8, customers at Macy’s Roosevelt Field will have the opportunity to
see a live performance from Simpson, plus take part in a meet-and-greet* with
any $40 American Rag Juniors or Young Men’s purchase (*while time permits).

Instagram Flyaway Contest

Fans will have the opportunity to win a once-in-a-lifetime meeting with
Simpson by getting social as part of the ALL ACCESS campaign. From Sept. 8
through Oct. 6, fans can "regram" the official contest photo posted on
September 8 from @raggedmag, using the hash-tag #ARAllAccess for an
opportunity to win a trip for two to Los Angeles for a private meet-and-greet
with Simpson at his in-store appearance on Nov. 8 and a $500 American Rag
wardrobe.
