Introducing the world’s first Big Mac lifestyle collection
Today is the world premiere of the first Big Mac lifestyle collection at the McWalk fashion show in Stockholm, Sweden. The collection is a tribute to the most popular burger in the world and requested by the fans. The McWalk fashion show is part of a global initiative by McDonald’s, known as imlovinit24.
During today’s fashion show at the Gallerian Shopping Mall in Stockholm – the McWalk – the world’s first Big Mac lifestyle collection is presented, introducing a completely new line with the Big Mac pattern. The collection has been developed following the success with the Big Mac Thermals that was created as part of McDonald’s Sweden’s sponsorship of the Swedish Alpine and Cross country Ski Team. The thermals resulted in immediate positive response and a major request from fans all over.
– We know that people love Big Mac, so we decided to celebrate the love for Big Mac by holding a fashion show, McWalk. Big Mac is Sweden’s and the world’s most favorite hamburger and for the fans who love what they see on the cat walk, many of the products can be purchased in the bigmacshop.se, says Jeff Jackett, Director of Marketing with McDonald’s Sweden.
The Big Mac lifestyle collection is a limited edition and sold exclusively on bigmacshop.se. The Big Mac Thermals, Big Mac Wallpaper and Big Mac Bed Sheets are available now. The Big Mac Raincoat, Big Mac Wellingtons and Big Mac Dog Coat will be available later on. Surplus from the sales is given to Ronald McDonald House Charities.
The McWalk fashion show in Stockholm is part of a global initiative by McDonald’s – imlovinit24. With the initiative, McDonald’s Sweden hope to both surprise and spread joy in an unexpected way. The McWalk fashion show in Stockholm is the 18th in a list of 24 events all over the world.
– At McDonald’s, the customer experience is the focus of everything we do. Today, through imlovinit24, we’re focusing on the fun of our brand and uniting and engaging with customers in something truly positive: sharing 24 gifts of joy to millions of people around the world in 24 hour, says Jeff Jackett.
Sydney, Australia, got imlovinit24 activities off to a great start with a gigantic ball pit shaped like a vast coffee cup. Everybody who took part was offered free coffee. Other global activities included a pyjama party in Italy, where guests wearing their pyjamas were given free breakfast for 24 days. In Brazil, guests were given coupons made of ice which they could redeem until they melted. Special bicycle McDrives were organised in Denmark, called Bike Thru.
This worldwide initiative will end with a free concert in the USA, presenting world-famous R&B artiste Ne-Yo performing the song Every Day with Love, which has crowd sourced lyrics written by fans.
