Arena arms The Real Housewives of Sydney with backstab-proof fashion via Clemenger, Sydney

Screen Shot 2017-05-17 at 2.28.40 pm.jpgTo promote the fireworks, walk-outs and catfights of The Real Housewives of Sydney reunion special, Foxtel channel Arena and Clemenger BBDO Sydney developed Kevlar Couture - a range of backstab proof fashion for The Real Housewives of Sydney.

These one-off dresses, designed exclusively for the Real Housewives, have one unique feature - they're made from military-grade, backstab-proof Kevlar. The collection includes an item for every occasion: the Galvanised Gown is a showstopper that sashays straight from charity ball to high society brawl, the impenetrable Fortdress flips from cocktail to carnage, and the Combat Cape shifts effortlessly from boardroom to bitch-slap.

The tongue-in-cheek campaign features fan favourite housewife Matty Samaei across show promos, high fashion print, a website and a series of social videos that test the durability of the gowns against some high society weapons.

@Wat - Yeah a real stretch. I mean an idea about backstabbing for a program that is all about backstabbing? How dare they step away from the boring, well trodden conventions of television promos? *shakes fist*
