Client brief
How can Burberry own the fashion conversation on Twitter during London Fashion Week 2015? 

Creative Strategy
London Fashion Week is one of the most exclusive events of the year, with fans desperate to see the looks as soon as they're revealed. How could we give Tweeters the first look at the new collections, before anyone else? 

The idea
#TweetCam. The world's first Tweet powered camera that gives fashion fans a front row view of the catwalk during the live show. Cameras around the venue were embedded with responsive technology that enables real-time images to be sent straight to Twitter. Fans who tweeted the brand with #Tweetcam, received a photograph returned to them from the “best vantage point” at that moment, with their Twitter handle and a time stamp placed on top.

Should you Tweet before the show began you recieved a teaser image from the catwalk.

Once the show began the action shots were posted to fans via Twitter with a personalised time-stamp. No two images were the same, with cameras lined up to take photos every second from various vantage points.
