Sugarhigh Launches “Above the Influence” Campaign Focusing on the Brand’s Female Empowerment Philosophy

October 9, 2018

COSTA MESA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct 9, 2018--Sugarhigh, an emerging SoCal fashion and lifestyle brand, is distinguishing itself by using real girls as “influencers.” After noticing a lack of authenticity represented in the current culture of unnaturally-enhanced models serving as the faces of social media campaigns, they committed to a different approach by selecting real girls (not models) from various backgrounds to articulate the brand’s message of being authentic and true to one’s self.

Sugarhigh retails on-trend, budget-conscious fashion for young women who create their own influence. Its “ Above the Influence ” campaign, which features four real women, has gotten great response from young women who appreciate their authentic and empowering approach. In just a few months, the brand has accumulated thousands of followers from across the United States who embrace this philosophy and are ready to stand behind the movement.

“Sugarhigh believes in originality and this campaign highlights real people who refuse to conform to social pressure or try to fit into molds,” said Sugarhigh Creative Director Bree Randall. “The beautiful and original women featured in the campaign embody a deep authenticity and the no B.S. mentality that Sugarhigh was founded on.”

The four “Above The Influence” personalities each personifies a unique character trait:

AUTHENTIC – Florist & vintage shop owner: Zilah Drahn | @nycbeee EXPRESSIVE – Woodworker & interior designer: Alyssa Catalano | @wanderandwoodco INDEPENDENT – Surfer & graphic designer: Josie Raina | @josiemireless MOTIVATED – Artist & activist: Amber Ross | @ambernicole_ross

Sugarhigh’s new Fall 2018 collection, mixing quirky streetwear with the brand’s boho roots, launches Oct. 10 with price points $15-$80. The brand will also debut in select Active Ride Shop locations in California this month and on activerideshop.com. Watch for Sugarhigh coming soon to bluefly.com as the face of the original online fashion marketplace’s contemporary department.
