Chinese supermodel Du Juan to star in T Galleria by DFS FW2014 campaign

INTERNATIONAL. The Fall/Winter 2014 campaign for T Galleria by DFS, starring international Chinese supermodel Du Juan and New York-based model RJ Rogenski, is set to roll out as a six-part video series beginning next month.

Told through the pages of the travel journal, the campaign visuals use a combination of art forms – writing, illustration, photography, animation, and video – to feature a travel montage of iconic travel destinations. To capture the spirit of adventure and travel, the campaign continues with the paper theme of the past few seasons, which have featured intricate origami constructions, and another nostalgic and travel-related paper medium, the postcard.

Through the campaign, the audience is transported on a series of adventures in iconic DFS destinations, including Hong Kong, Singapore, Hawaii, Guam, Sydney and Okinawa.
