The CHRIST Xmas campaign 'Love is unlimited' in 2018 was all about limitless love, which knows neither age, skin color, height or gender roles. To realize it, photographer GABO asked particularly kind people to pose in front of her camera.
“In Advent and the Christmas Season, we use the reflective mood of stopping for a moment, which we often neglect in the bustle of daily life, rarely taking the time to appreciate our partners, families and friends.” says Marko Jünemann, Marketing Director at Christ.
To go with the campaign, the company presents the "Christ Child", a necklace with a guardian angel pendant made of 925 sterling silver and a diamond in the heart. The piece of jewelry costs 79.90 euros and is available as a limited edition. For each angel sold, ten euros go to the organization "wellcome", according to the CHRIST press release. christ.de
Together with animal rights organization PETA, actress and presenter Désirée Nosbusch and star photographer GABO appeal to all consumers not to buy exotic leather. The claim of the PETA motif: "I am not a fashion accessory!" In the making-of video from the shoot (click here to see it), the native of Luxembourg explains how brutal leather production is and how many animals are killed for a single crocodile leather handbag. Désirée Nosbusch's motif was staged by star photographer GABO, who has supported PETA for many years with heart and soul. "Just imagine, the skin of four crocodiles is used for one single handbag. The animals' necks are slashed without anesthetic, and then a metal bar is pushed into their spinal cord. So, is it even a question of wanting such a handbag? No, right? Please show compassion, and don't buy exotic leather."
As an actress and presenter, Désirée Nosbusch has been involved in several international and domestic productions. In the four-time award-winning ZDF mini-series "Bad Banks", she makes a brilliant appearance as an ice-cold bank executive. Years ago, Desirée Nosbusch already supported PETA: She hosted PETA's press conference for its fifth anniversary and realized a motif against fur. The mother of two children speaks six languages fluently and lives alternately in Berlin and Luxembourg. peta.de/desiree-nosbusch-exotenleder
