Lindsay Lohan‘s recent stint in jail doesn’t seem to be hindering her fashion career. Before her incarceration, designer Marc Ecko enlisted the actress as his “digital muse” to star in a new interactive ad campaign for the fall 2010 collection of his contemporary clothing line Cut & Sew. Instead of just posing for pretty pictures, Lindsay will appear in a series of online video skits, shot by Markus Klinko and Indrani, that will be featured on a dedicated site, marceckomuse.com, later this month. The multimedia initiative combines the traditional ideas of a print campaign with web technology to create a multi-dimensional, virtual experience for the consumer using effects similar to holograms. So why Lindsay? “I cast Lindsay because people are fascinated with her – they can either feel good or bad things, but they are feeling some type of emotion. She’s a pop culture icon,” Ecko said in a release. Lindsay will also appear in a more traditional print campaign alongside the designer, shot by famed photographer Zach Gold in New York City and scheduled to bow in September magazines.
