Social commerce is ending 2020 with a bang as Walmart announced it will soon host livestreams with “fashion-loving TikTok creators” through which viewers can buy featured items directly on the platform.
The first one-hour livestream will be on Dec. 18 at 8 p.m. E.T. on Walmart’s TikTok page. It will feature nine “creators on the rise,” along with Michael Le, a dancer and choreographer better known as JustMaiko, who boasts 43 million followers.
According to a blog post, these creators will “reveal their favorite Walmart fashion finds in a way that’s uniquely their own”—and perhaps also uniquely of the moment—with at-home content like a peek in their closets and a living room fashion show.
