May 16, 2017: New York, NY – Renowned YouTube superstar LaurDIY is proud to announce the signing of a sleepwear partnership with industry leader The Kersheh Group, owner and producer of Sleep Riot. The LaurDIY sleepwear launch will bring her favorite characters and prints to life. A capsule collection of Lauren’s signature onesies will feature familiar character faces such as a narwhal and other kawaii animals that play a role in LaurDIY’s brand.
“Are you really relaxing if you’re not in a onesie?! I’m so excited to merge two of my favorite things; onesies + cute and kawaii animals! These onesies are exactly what I’m looking for that aren’t already on the market and I can’t wait to share them with my viewers.” Says LaurDIY.
“Lauren’s personal brand, voice and vibrant content themes complement the DNA and aesthetic of the Sleep Riot brand. Her ability to meaningfully engage with the brand’s core demographic coupled with her love for onesies makes this a perfect match!” says Allison Jurow, Sr. Director Merchandising & Creative.
This deal is announced on the heels of LaurDIY’s historic launch of custom PopSockets which enjoyed over 1 million views and the sale of thousands of units within hours of the launch. This has been PopSockets most successful launch in the company’s history, demonstrating the strength of the LaurDIY brand to convert content-to-commerce through smart, strategic and fully integrated social marketing. LaurDIY will employ similar, highly targeted strategies as she passionately markets the launch of the sleepwear line to consumers for Holiday 2017.
The Brand Liaison continues to build the LaurDIY licensing program across a variety of brand-right extensions, and future deals will include back-to-school products, plush and more. The Brand Liaison will proudly showcase LaurDIY licensing at Licensing Expo May 23-24-25 at the Mandalay Convention Center in Las Vegas, Booth E-154.
