    I am a huge fan of KJP. I have several bracelets and a few head bands from them and I hope that this wonderful brand can be shared with the world. I can’t wait to see what the campaign is going to be like and what Mariposa Communications has in store. Whatever it is, I’m sure they will not disappoint! It would be great if you could keep all of us updated on the ins and outs of planning a campaign and what goes into creating a successful campaign, especially for such a fabulous brand as KJP!

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
