Fashion PR Workshop

Think of it like camp, except you’re surrounded by fellow insanely well-dressed daycampers who care more about Vogue than kayaks, Louboutin’s than lanyards, and instead of trees and lakes, you’ll have the sparkling backdrop of NYC, industry epicenter. Fashion PR Confidential is an experience filled with kindred spirits and counselors aka teachers, who want nothing more than you arm you with everything you need to become the well-connected, successful fashion publicist you are oh so ready to become. First up – three absolutely must-know tips about making the most of #fashionprcon NYC!

Here’s your first PR tip: Always try to get in for FREE

How much do you love fashion PR? How creative can you get? We’re looking for a winning scholarship entry that blows the (friendly) competition out of the water. Our scholarship winner gets to attend 2 days of rare awesome for absolutely nada, zilch, gratis. Deadline for entries is September 12, 2013 at midnight EST.

Another tip: When you spend less, there’s more leftover for shoes

Register early to Save $100 on registration. If you’ve got an intuitive tickle that Fashion PR Con is for you, do yourself a smartie and secure your spot at an early-bird rate before September 6. You can pay in installments to make it easier on the wallet and while we won’t talk to your parents for you, let them know you’ll be a part of our Alumni group which means you’ll find out about hard-t0-find  internships and job opportunities all year-long.

And a final tip: Never miss an opportunity to study with the best

In addition to your always lovely, always charming, always brilliant co-teachers – myself and Fashion PR Con founder Danika Daly – our guest speakers in NYC are a heavy dose of amazing. First up, Julia Rubin of Teen Vogue (yeah, no big deal), will be teaching how to make editors love you. SWOON!

Fashion PR Confidential has been such an amazing and insightful experience. -Marina Pierre

Learn about Fashion PR

How would it feel to spend two days, 18+ hours of instruction, immersed in the industry you love? How might attending open doors for future internships, jobs and career clarity? I would have given pretty much anything to know what you will learn during Fashion PR Con when I was just starting out. Say YES. You won’t regret it! For more, check out this recent post over at PR-Diva and stay up to date on the workshop through Facebook and Twitter.

Also, if you don’t live in NYC not to worry! We have PR Girls from all over the country fly in for our events. Grab a bestie, pick out an affordable studio apartment through Airbnb, and plan a vacation to the big apple!
