Madheart director Jan Gleie portrays the lives and fashion sense of two young women in a pair of new ads for T.J. Maxx and Grey, New York. The spots are part of the retailer’s on-going Maxxinista campaign and sequels to a group of spots directed by Gleie last year. Each takes the form of a loose documentary of a free-spirited young woman who is both a fashion trendsetter and someone who appreciates a bargain.
One of the new spots features stylist Cate Sheehy from the TLC series What to Wear. She first appears in her studio and confesses that what she enjoys most is styling her friends. “They,” she notes, “all love the latest trends, but none of them wants to pay full price.” She takes them on a shopping trip to T.J. Maxx where they load up on designer fashions at discount prices.
