Nivea Extra White Firming Body Serum

Beiersdorf (Malaysia) Sdn. Bhd.

For the launch of Nivea Extra White Firming Body Serum, Nivea wanted to showcase the product promise of fair and firm skin. The problem was, draconian local censorship and increasingly conservative cultural values prevented us from revealing too much skin.

We turned this disadvantage into an advantage. We collaborated with internationally renowned American designer Adam Saaks for a special fashion show called Nivea Flaunt It. Saaks is known for creating daring, highly-revealing designs by cutting patterns out of clothing. Yet we got him to create the least revealing designs that would still draw maximum attention to the skin underneath. At one of the most popular malls in KL, his on-the-spot creations were performed live on stage on a pair of local celebrities.
