Ackermans Lingerie




confidence starts at the first layer.

In celebrating women’s month this August, we love a good TVC that highlights the confidence and fearlessness of our South African women. The main brief on this project was to encapsulate the celebration of different women with different bodies, all the while feeling and looking amazing.


And so, director Dillon Buirski set about to create the perfect look and feel for this campaign, inspired by women with confidence and a certain realness to them. We are in awe of the considered art direction, stunning hair and make-up and ultimately the way in which it all sits together in harmony.

It’s so refreshing to see more and more fashion retailers beginning to embrace bodies in all shapes and sizes, and we are_ here for it! We loved being part of the casting process, and super proud of the collection of women that formed part of this TVC.

Thank you to the entire team for making this shoot happen – we appreciate your determination and quiet tenacity. Thank you also to the team at 99c for trusting us with this vision and always pushing for fresh ideas!
