Build Your Brand: Become a Fashion Editor’s Best Friend

In public relations, we often talk about the difference between proactive and reactive media relations. Any publicist worth her Jimmy Choo's will tell you that proactive media outreach is crucial to securing ongoing press, and she'd be right. If you're waiting around for a fashion editor to stumble onto your website or into your boutique, well, slip into a snuggie because you are going to be waiting for a long, long time. That said, reactive media relations isn't all bad - especially when you have set such a strong foundation with your media contacts that they start to come to you for help putting together stories, identifying sources and requesting samples. It's so much easier to get press when you are on editor speed-dial.

What is Build Your Brand?

In case you are wondering what in the heck I am talking about, PR Couture has partnered with StartUp Fashion, a spectacular online destination for emerging fashion designers, to offer a 3-part intensive on Spreecast for designers who are looking to bypass common mistakes and build up a successful brand with ease. We have more than 80 independent and emerging designers signed up - and our first event was a rousing success!

Three 60 minute live video Spreecasts will tackle:

  • How to Turn Website Lurkers into Loyal Paying Customers
  • How to be a Fashion Editor’s Best Friend
  • How to Impress the Heck out of Buyers

During each session we will:

  • Lay out best practices, must-dos and inside scoop
  • Provide tips and tools to make it easy to execute
  • Provide a live, lovingly-delivered critique for one lucky participant
  • Wrap up with a Q&A period to make sure you get your questions answered.

We're here to help you do the work. All you have to do is show up!

Questions? We're really looking forward to getting down to business! If you have any questions about the program or want to see if it's the right fit for you, shoot me a note at crosby[at] with BYB in the subject.

See you next week!

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
