Fashion power house and celebrity culture driven publication collide to execute an innovative and multi-faceted consumer focused program

Famous for launching the most outstanding and innovative marketing campaigns, Baby Phat by Kimora Lee Simmons, in collaboration with GIANT Magazine, presents the "Sole Series" Campaign! GIANT and Baby Phat have embarked on a unique multi-media program that will engage the audience by integrating readers' experience with Baby Phat through print, digital, special event and mobile initiatives. Featured artists for the "Sole Series" program include: female group Electrik Red, pop singer Kristinia DeBarge, singer/songwriter Priscilla Renea and contemporary R&B singer Dondria Nicole. This ground-breaking campaign consists of the following: a "Road to Success" print feature, in-store tour and a mobile sweepstakes for the opportunity to win the ultimate fashionista experience by attending the Baby Phat Fashion Show during New York's renowned Fashion Week. Talk about living life in the "fab" lane.

The "Road to Success" story will feature each of the artists in an intimate Q&A, giving the readers the opportunity to experience what life is like offstage in the music industry . This 6-page impact unit will launch in the August/September 2009 issue of GIANT.

In addition to the "Road to Success" stories, each artist will hold an in-store event at a Baby Phat footwear retailer. Each event will consist of a performance of smash hits from the artists' latest album, in an intimate Baby Phat setting. Fans that make a Baby Phat purchase leading up to the in-store will receive an exclusive VIP pass to the event. The appearance schedule is as follows: Electrik Red will be at a Los Angeles Sheikh Shoes location in August, Kristinia DeBarge at a Chicago Finish Line location in September, Priscilla Renea at an Atlanta Underground Station location in October and Dondria Nicole at a Dallas Underground Station location in November.

To become eligible for this amazing opportunity, consumers must make a Baby Phat purchase at least 2 weeks leading up to the in-store. Once they make their purchase, they will receive a card with a trivia question, testing how much they know and love Baby Phat. After doing their homework, they must text their answers for a chance to win. Since Kimora adores her fans, everyone walks away with an exclusive Kimora Lee Simmons download regardless of whether their answer is correct or incorrect.
