In July 2018, The Modist came to Sunshine to help define their brand point of view and launch it in a meaningful and impactful way, helping them use the power and influence of fashion and their brand story to spearhead cultural progression. We needed to redefine ‘modesty’ from a conversation laden with cultural baggage, to a fashion forward silhouette and empowered choice for all women everywhere.

Fashion’s new gaze.

At a moment in time where the fashion industry was starting to take notice, at a time where now more than ever there were a lot of people getting air time for what women wear, from the British Foreign Secretary to The French Tennis association it was fitting for the Modist to take the reigns as a platform celebrating nothing more complicated than the universality of a woman’s choice. A choice to live life through the female, not male gaze, a gaze that sees people as people, a gaze that empathizes with and celebrates instead of objectifies the female form.

Fashion with a point of view, style without sacrifice.

Sunshine worked closely with The Modist team to articulate their point of view in a powerful and impactful way, but a brand is at its most powerful when complemented by what it does as much as what it says. Along with the brand manifesto, Sunshine and The Modist shot the #alamodist campaign; a fashion forward take on all the surprisingly diverse faces, bodies and styles that can make a modest silhouette, speaking to women who choose to dress modestly for whatever their reason.
A point of view is only powerful if others can understand and express it, the #alamodist movement launched as part of the campaign inviting all the diverse faces and styles of the Modest fashion movement to join The Modist in celebrating the female gaze. Against the current cultural backdrop, navigating the female form remains a fraught proposition in the most quotidian and granular of ways, the campaign seeks to inspire, arm, and galvanise women to feel completely at home, completely themselves and completely fashion relevant in their essentially concealed bodies.

“The Modist is an inspiring brand sitting at the heart of a powerful cultural conversation, partnering with them at a time where their story is so relevant and ripe has been inspiring, challenging and incredibly gratifying. We’re so proud to partner with The Modist on their important mission.”
