In 2019, UNIQLO launched a first-of-its-kind multi-market brand campaign called #UTPlayYourWorld on TikTok. The hashtag challenge aimed to engage as many users as possible by sharing creative and inspiring moments wearing their favourite UNIQLO UT collection outfit.
This global apparel brand rolled out the in-app challenge from 25th June to 11th July , targeting TikTokers in US, Japan, and Taiwan. Winners stood a chance to win the Grand Prix as a result. Moreover, their videos will be displayed on UNIQLO stores worldwide as well.
The campaign reached 709.8 million views with popular TikTok users joining in. For instance, here are some known TikTokers in the US and Japan who took part in case you missed it last year.

Why UNIQLO chose TikTok for its UT Collection Campaign?
UNIQLO targeted the young generation of consumers particularly on TikTok for its appeal to their target audience. Coupled with TikTok’s features, it provided users with a chance to express their creativity. Thus, it enabled UNIQLO to build an authentic and diverse connection with a broad audience.
Considering TikTok’s interactive and immersive content experience, the #UTPlayYouWorld campaign has also effectively demonstrated the UNIQLO UT Collection brand philosophy – “Wear Your World”.
Furthermore, UT is UNIQLO’s special collection of graphic t-shirts pop culture icons and influences. Characters like Hello Kitty, Super Mario, Disney Princesses and Villains, superheroes from Marvel, and the upcoming Pokemon collections are some of the prints featured in the UT Collection.
