Building on the success and innovation of the A|X STYLEPAD applications, the A|X VIDEOMIX will give iPhone and iPad users creative control to customize their own A|X music video fashion show with their choice of runway models, music, backgrounds and looks, for an engaging experience that is also shoppable and shareable.

For the A|X VIDEOMIX, Armani Exchange worked with digital boutique, SODAMEDIA, to develop this ground-breaking application which utilizes advanced technology via a combination of automatic customizations drawn from Facebook Connect, that will allow users to create a "mash-up" of their selected "run of show," choosing from a style arsenal of eight music tracks, ten animated graphics backgrounds, thirty complete A|X looks and six models, to create eight runway looks per video for a unique video experience. Once complete, iPhone and iPad users will then be able to shop and share their VIDEOMIX with friends via email and social networks, including Facebook and Twitter.

The A|X VIDEOMIX will also provide users with the opportunity to receive exclusive content, including access to the Giorgio Armani "SuperShow" created using the A|X VIDEOMIX App, as well as opportunities to participate in special promotions and giveaways.

The A|X VIDEOMIX offers users an interactive way to experience the A|X lifestyle with well-crafted visual integration of sophisticated style, social networking, and click-through commerce. The looks featured in the A|X VIDEOMIX are built from the A|X 20th Anniversary Collection and the cast includes "the best of" past A|X models featuring Alessandra Ambrosio, Marlon Teixeira, Francisco Lachowski, Milou Sluis, and more.

Armani Exchange continues to enhance their extremely powerful global digital platform to target consumers' lifestyle, taking advantage of the influential amplifier of online and mobile entertainment. Operated by an in-house cross-functional team, these initiatives are an evolution of our marketing message, linked to strategic goals and integrated with global marketing strategies.
