Uniqlo opens Live Station

JAPANESE global brand Uniqlo brings more shopping convenience with the launch of Uniqlo Live Station. Available on Uniqlo’s Facebook, IGTV, and YouTube pages, this online event series aims to give customers a new and fun way of shopping for their LifeWear clothing essentials. Hosted by Justin Quirino and celebrity fashion stylist Bea Constantino, the first episode showcases the latest Uniqlo AIRism Collection. AIRism is clothing made with a fiber material that absorbs the water vapor more quickly than ordinary polyester and diffuses moisture using a quick-drying capillary effect. During the online event, the hosts demonstrate how AIRism works by showing how quickly it takes for the clothing pieces from the collection to absorb moisture. Viewers were also shown different ways to style the AIRism pieces based on various everyday activities. Customers can visit the official feature page for Uniqlo Live Station at https://www.uniqlo.com/ph/en/spl/live-station. This will house all succeeding Uniqlo Live Stations and will include the complete list of products worn by the host and stylist. They can rewatch the first episode at Uniqlo Philippines’ official Facebook page, Instagram Page and YouTube channel. Stay tuned for succeeding Uniqlo Live Station episodes and upcoming events for special offers and promotions, including the upcoming 11.11 Big Mega Sales Day.
