Medeiros Fashion PR

Welcome to Medeiros Fashion PR

Medeiros Fashion Public Relations (AKA “Medeiros Fashion PR”) is the FIRST public relations firm in the United States to specialize in the plus size fashion industry. Now that the power of the plus purse is finally being realized, we give plus size designers, models, photographers, etc, the voice that they deserve!

Typical clients include plus size designers, retailers, stylists, and publications that are located in major cities across the world, have been in business for 2- 10 years, and are seeking to increase their media exposure, online presence, and sales. Since Medeiros Fashion PR specializes in the plus size fashion industry, clients can be assured that each and every relationship made will benefit them; no wasted time, money, or effort!

We offer a wide variety of services such as press outreach, fashion event assistance, social media management, partnership development, press release creation, feature article creation, blog page setup and writing, social media linking, directory submissions, and recruiting participants for fashion events. Our services are competitively priced with the industry, ranging from $75 to $10,000, and each client receives a customized package to meet their goals and budget needs.

Public relations is one of the most powerful tools a brand can have, especially thanks to the concept of “3rd party credibility”, the understanding that, since a member of the media is usually not paid to write about or feature a particular client and does regardless, the client must truly have an excellent product or service instead of just having the money for a paid advertisement, whether or not the product is any good at all.

President Emma Medeiros has a degree in Integrated Marketing Communications from Emerson College and has a journalistic background as the blogger of Curves, Cats, and Creams. Combining these with a passion for fashion, Emma launched Medeiros Fashion PR when she discovered that, despite a massive growth in the plus size fashion industry over the last several years, not a single public relations firm in the country was dedicated exclusively to it, which was unacceptable in her eyes.

The plus size fashion industry has grown by leaps and bounds over the past few years and shows absolutely no sign of slowing down. Since this has created more competition for plus professionals, Medeiros Fashion PR only accepts clients who offer something truly unique to the industry, believing wholeheartedly in Coco Chanel’s idea of “in order to be irreplaceable, one must always be different”!
