From Stuffy to Sexy - Transforming forgotten and broken brands
In 2013 Jemima Bird, worked with Moss Bros, a 160 year old brand which was well respected but unloved. She took a brand known to have dressed men for the most important day of their lives for over 8 generations to a bloke stood in his underpants dressing into a suit. This is the story of how the brand was brought up-to-date & into the prevailing zeitgeist – and how emotions and emotional branding played a part in that journey.
