Fashion PR Must-Reads: Top Web Sites Every Fashion Publicist Should Know

On Saturday I had the amazing opportunity to present about fashion PR and emerging trends to the Public Relations Student Society of America's (PRSSA) National Conference - which was held, conveniently, in downtown San Diego. In the presentation I discussed some of the more traditional tenets of fashion PR and then moved into how the fashion industry and entrepreneurs have harnessed the power of the self-publishing web 2.0 to provide countless new ways to engage and monitor brands online.

I have uploaded the presentation to SlideShare but received so many inquiries about the resources and must-read section of the presentation that I wanted to make these links their own post on PR Couture. I've also added a few on.

Thank you to everyone who came to hear me speak, especially those of you who stood in the cold afterward to ask a few questions and take a photo. I can't tell you what it means to visit with and get to know my readers. I was inspired by your passion for the profession and can't wait to see how your careers unfold.

Ok Schmaltziness aside, here are the Fashion PR Industry Must-Reads:

Blogs/Online Fashion Media

Independent Fashion

Social Shopping

Personal Outfit/Fashion Communities
Fashion/Creativity
Fashion PR Directories

Enjoy!

    The fashion spot should be on this list. It’s always telling re: what the readers/consumers are thinking.

    You should also have Handbago.com listed under your Blogs/Online Fashion Media links. They cover all things handbags.

    Your presentation was the best I heard the whole weekend. Thanks for giving us a true low-down on what’s going on in the industry and how you, yourself view what’s going on in modern marketing/PR.

    Favorite quote of the day was, “Everyone knows that mustaches are the new unicorns.” :)

    Thank you so much for taking the time to present! It was the best presentation I went to! Because there is no fashion blog at my school, me and my friend are going to start one! Thank you for the inspiration!

    Thank you for posting this! I enjoyed your presentation and the opportunity to meet you in San Diego. Thank you for showing me that you don’t need to live in New York City to be in fashion. I look forward to seeing what you’ll do in the future!

Meet Crosby Noricks

Hi. I'm Crosby, the founder of PR Couture and a fashion brand strategist. 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 Elixer sessions or shoot me a note.
