Coperni seeks path to stardom, AMI and Jacquemus fight for top spot

Coperni's spray-on dress
Everyone has heard about the spray-on dress. Supermodel Bella Hadid appears half-naked on stage, her hands covering her breasts. Two men in black gently spray her body with a white substance that solidifies into a dress. A woman moves forward and slits it up to mid-thigh. The video goes viral. The bold stunt pays off and the young fashion brand Coperni becomes a global celebrity overnight. In terms of visibility, Coperni’s show beat megabrands with much deeper pockets. According to the data analysis firm Launchmetrics, Coperni’s spray-on dress generated $26.3 million in media impact value, as much as the announcement last month that Rihanna would perform at the coveted U.S. Super Bowl half-time show in February.
