Is IKEA coming out of the closet?

Published by on december 8, 2014 at 10:59 f m

In our last newsletter we released the idea that Ikea should make clothes. It became a viral global hit with up to five articles a day, including in The Guardian and the Daily Mirror.

Along with Jack Yan, publisher of the fashion magazine Lucire I wrote the press release which became more viral than we could have hoped. Many has built on and took the idea further and now there are even ads created for IKEA Fashion. It was really flattering when The Daily Mirror has recommended IKEA to contacts us in order to further grow the idea. We have spawned the idea, however it is up to IKEA to decide if they should come out of the closet or not.
