It is the seasonal sport which makes for great water-cooler conversation and heavy March and September issues. While the medium of consuming is evolving, the fact is that content is still king. The Impression loves watching each campaign unfold, often starting with the tease of a single image and eventually blossoming into a full fledged campaign. And every once in awhile as we speed along through all those magazine pages, online ads, and films something will jump out and make us stop … give pause … reflect … admire … and impress.

We didn’t just stumble upon our name. We were inspired by those that rose to the top and wanted to champion and celebrate their achievements. 

Here are THE IMPRESSION’S  TOP FASHION ADS OF SPRING 2016.
