  • Working for a public relations company was a bit of a change for Williams. At previous fashion weeks, she spent most of her time working the week before fashion week helping designers with the preparation of the collection.“I just wanted to get experience with all facets of the industry,” Williams said. “My focus is design, so I would love to ultimately design. As far as starting out, I am not expecting to have my dream job, and I really like event planning, too.”

Fashion designer Black Heart Bunny was at PR Couture's recent fashion networking talk and wrong a lovely recap of the evening:

  • The guest speaker was Ms Crosby Noricks of the #1 Fashion PR Blog PR Couture... She is endearing, witty, insightful and her talk was very motivating. Besides providing insight into the world Fashion PR and the power of blogging, she also shared with us what fashion means to her on an intimate level.

Paying bloggers for coverage (via AdFreak)

  • Personally, I think there's nothing wrong with giving bloggers free samples, even if the products are pricey. But when there's a direct quid pro quo for coverage, you've got a recipe for eroded credibility on both sides. That said, I know plenty of hardworking bloggers who subsist on paid reviews and other sponsored projects.

  • Carine's name is often mentioned in awe by fashionistas around the world who all love her for her edgy fashion spreads and slightly punky covers.

Meet Crosby Noricks

Hi. I'm Crosby, Founder of PR Couture, Fashion Brand Strategist and PR Girl Mentor. I care about supporting and celebrating fashion publicists as well as helping companies connect with their audiences in more meaningful ways. Recently, iMedia included me in their annual list of 25 Internet Marketing Leaders and Innovators, along with people from Starbucks, Twitter and Volkswagon, which I think is pretty neat. Like Elle Woods, I am a Gemini-vegetarian (that's about where the similarities end). Let's connect: Check out my full bio, Brand Elixir sessions for brands or shoot me a note at
