How Global Streetwear Brand Mishka Deals with Negative Comments on Social Media

Mishka is a popular clothing brand based in New York City that was started by Greg Rivera and Mikhail Bortnik in 2003. Originally a t-shirt company, Mishka has grown into a global streetwear brand with stores in New York, Los Angeles and Tokyo. Their success is owned in large part to developing a cult following and engaging that following with social media. For example, the Mishka blog covers  streetwear, art and music, with 50 different bloggers posting 8-10 times a day. The blog gets 8-10k unique visitors a day and over 200,000 unique visitors a month.

In the latest Grovo Expert Series, a recurring webisode of live-action interviews that shed light on the evolving world of Web 2.0 and viral branding, Greg explains how his t-shirt company has used social media, including blogging and Twitter, for company success.

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
