Fashion Blogger: How to Pitch Jennine Jacobs, Independent Fashion Bloggers

Since it's start in 2007, Independent Fashion Bloggers, the brainchild of Jennine Jacobs, has risen to be an authoritative community hub for fashion bloggers and the brands seeking to connect with them. Whether its interviewing The Sartorialist, penning the Fair Compensation Manifesto, or hosting the biannual IFB Conference, any brand seeking to engage with fashion bloggers should be paying attention to IFB's ongoing evolution.

What do you wish more fashion brands/publicists understood about IFB:

IFB doesn't blog about fashion per se, we focus on how to help fashion bloggers improve their blog and monetize. We'd be more interested in how a brand launched a campaign with bloggers than talking about the product.

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.
