Press Release Summary: Topshop has launched the Topshop Fashion Fix application for Facebook users
Press Release Body: The new Topshop Fashion Fix which has recently been launched on Facebook allows users to see the newest must-have pieces for the season from their Facebook profile. Facebook users can view items in detail and stamp a "love it or lose it" comment for their friends to see. Pieces can be shared and passed to other Facebook friends to talk about the latest styles, plan outfits or simply arrange shopping trips.
The Topshop Fashion Fix application was created and produced by renowned digital agency Poke, and developed in collaboration with the Topshop internal web team.
As an added incentive for Facebookers eager to try out the new application, during the run-up to Christmas, Fashion Fix users can play a weekly game of "Snap" on Facebook to win anything from 10%-off at Topshop.com to a year's supply of shoes.
With thousands of groups already networking about Topshop and swapping ideas about what they’re about to buy, this application ensures that they’re the first to see what's new in-store. The Fashion Fixes’ sharing and commenting features also allows them to have lots of fun in the process - and makes sure that their friends know exactly what they’re planning to wear at the weekend.
With daily updates and over 3000 different items to shop at any one time, Topshop.com is one of the UK's biggest online retailers with an exciting and dynamic site to reflect the brand's image as an innovative fashion authority.
Topshop.com is Topshop's second biggest store and a leader in the digital market place. Communicating to it's customers via the weekly 'Style Notes' email (a magazine-like reminder of news with 350,000 subscribers), two RSS feeds (the 'Style Blog' and 'Daily Fix'), their cute desktop 'widget' and video podcasts (including 9 London Fashion Week catwalk movies published within 24 hours of the shows), Topshop engages with their young and dynamic audience in ways that they understand.
Poke is a six year old creative agency for the digital age. Poke has built a reputation for engaging, challenging design communications work with a select group of high profile clients. Poke is the only UK-based agency to have been awarded the digital industry's equivalent of the ‘Oscars’ - New York’s Webby Awards - three years in a row (2005-2007).
