It’s been a hectic first few months of the new year. Fashion weeks have been and gone, the late night show streaming has been completed accompanied by endless cups of coffee, and THE looks have been decided upon for your reader’s spring summer wardrobes. Plus that dreaded article has finally been submitted and the MAC freebies you picked up at LFW acted as a helpful reminder that all this unwanted stress is so worth it! The madness is gradually dying down but for you, it never stops. However call me a fairy godmother, or every young journalist’s dream, but this month I have aided those tired heads as well as reviving that writer’s block by providing you with the latest scoop for both your loyal readers and yourselves. As fabulous writers, photographers, designers and interviewers you don’t need me to tell you how to do your well deserved job. But you may find the latest news from the industry, the hottest jobs in the city AND essential dates for your diary all rather useful. And as you hit the anti-climax of show season and frantically flick through newspapers searching for your lost inspiration, I arrive as accurately timed as a taxi in the rain with the March issue. This month I bring you a break-down of the key looks come September, the best sites for you to scope this month and the latest events that you’ll soon be receiving press passes to. No need to thank me, it comes with the job, which is to aid yours. Although if you felt like showing your gratitude, a little visit to the site and subscribing wouldn’t go amiss... Happy writing!

Through the powers of our forecasting team and our heightened fashion sixth sense, we have compiled five key trends that we believe will grace the catwalks come September. Here’s what designers are working on right now for their spring/ summer 2012 collections. Roll on 16/09 so we can smile with glee as our predictions come true...
we take a look into the world of fashion PR through Emma Hart, who works for one of the UK’s most dynamic fashion, beauty and lifestyle PR agencies, What does a regular day Has it changed how you do working in fashion PR entail? business significantly? Today we met at 9am for a team meeting where we go through clients, who’s had coverage and what’s happening. We’re currently working on our press day, a day where we do a whole show of our clients. We had a team meeting to plan what’s happening with that, discussing goodie bags and doing brainstorming session. At 10am we go through all of the weekend newspapers to see where our clients have been featured. We correspond with our clients throughout the afternoon to see what else can be done. If clients have not been featured, we phone journalists up to see if we can get something promoted. We have a journalist meeting over lunch, followed by lots of emailing and general following up. We send samples on a daily basis, sending them to different shoots and meeting with celebrity stylists. Fitting everything in is quite challenging.
How useful is social networking in the business?
It has been very successful and extremely useful in terms of people finding us for new business.
How important is it to secure Yes, very much so. It’s also a deal with a top publication?
changed the way we promote our clients. We use Facebook and Twitter a huge amount, as well as online magazines and blogs, to target the media on behalf of our clients to gain them (and ourselves) exposure. It’s changed PR hugely in the last 6-12 months. We have our own online media PR team to utilise our online networking community and promote clients, to ensure we cross all social media networks.
What magazines do you work alongside?
We mainly target women’s glossies - Marie Claire, Company, Cosmopolitan, Harper’s Bazaar, Elle and Vogue - as well as all the weeklies - such as Grazia, Stylist, and More! magazine. We target all the key newspapers and the weekend supplements, including the Telegraph’s Stella magazine. We cover a huge spectrum of printed media, and we target all the online versions of such magazines. Guardian online is a huge target for us, as are all of the online versions of these magazines. Ten
It’s very important for our client to be featured in the right publication. We make sure we target the right ones, so our remis is to get our clients into key magazines.
“It’s about maintaining relationships and keeping in good communication” How do you maintain sustainable relationships with the media/key publications?
By keeping in touch with them, keeping them up-to-date, meeting up with them on a very regular basis, phoning and emailing them, and always having something to show them. I’ve been in PR for 12 years so I’ve built good relationships with the people we work with, fashion directors and journalists alike. It’s about maintaining relationships and keeping in good communication.
Who have been your most Are there any busy or How best would a journalist quiet periods in the year? go about working with you? successful clients? It’s hard to say really, seeing as we’ve been going for nine years as an agency. All of our clients are successful in their own ways. We look after EC One jewellery stores, who we launched with. They now have two stores in London, and we’ve seen them go from being fairly unknown to having Kate Moss as a client and regularly appearing in the glossies like Elle and Vogue. We’ve found that celebrities are extremely useful for promoting our clients. We work with Holistic Silk relaxation and travel accessories - when we started with the founder, we had a meeting in her kitchen. Fastforward 9 years, she’s in Harvey Nichols, Selfridges, and is known and successful internationally. Being able to expose clients to consumers through the media makes people more aware of brands, making them want to buy them. This is the power of good PR.
It used to be that you’d have some periods that were less busy, but we’ve found that this isn’t so true anymore. With the addition of online we have people we can target day-in, day-out. The edition of blogs and online magazines keep us busy all year round.
Just get in touch, talk to us about our clients, and ask the questions you want to know the answers to. We work with a lot of journalists; they often get in touch with us to ask us what we’re working on. The best way is to drop us an email which can be found on our website.
What do you look for in your What would you recommend clients that makes them stand as a starting point for a recent out? graduate who’s pursuing a We look for ambition, drive and career in fashion PR? a clear vision of where they want their brand to be. Keeping up good communication is very important.
Who are competitors?
In terms of naming a specific agency, we couldn’t name one because it varies depending on the client. There are a lot of fashion PR agencies of different sizes, so we don’t have any direct competitors as such. We’re all trying to do the same thing really - trying to get our clients into the right magazines. How do you know what a Whilst it’s a competitive industry, publication wants in their we all look after different clients.
Work experience. Showing that you can do everything, showing that you can be super proactive and super energized. Knowing your stuff, doing your research, knowing what you want to do, being up on trends and brands, and having a good grasp on the industry is extremely important. Reading, reading, and more reading! Show that you’re 100% willing to break into this industry. If you are passionate enough about it and prepared to work hard then there’s no reason why you can’t be successful.
It’s really about talking to them. You get to know what certain publications want. We work very closely with them to know what’s coming up, such as features, and we’ll work to get samples from our clients to pass on. We look to all the trends for the next seasons and compile extensive trend reports.
Can you sum up Push PR’s objectives in a sentence?
“ To create hard hitting, inspiring campaigns that encourage businesses to excel and grow ”

Blog of the month
“Something Nuh” Evita Nuh is the fresh face behind popular fashion and lifestyle blog ‘The Creme de la crop’. With the coherent writing style and breathtaking photography you’d be forgiven for thinking Evita is older than her 11 years, or as she proudly exclaims “almost 12”. Evita began writing her blog from the tender age of 9 reasoning that she’s got “just a bit too much love for fashion and photography.” This is clearly evident. After browsing There’s the pea green coat! through her posts you will notice Evita doesn’t just follow trends, but sets them. Who else could get away with polka dot leggings, a pea green coat and a 1920’s pilot hat? An eleven year old sweetheart still full of innocence who blogs simply because she loves to dress up. Evita is from a humble background, listing her father as one of her idols and describing her homeland, Indonesia, as “one of the most beautiful tropical countries in the world.” Although Evita is not yet sure if a career in fashion is for her, there is no doubt this young fashionista has a bright future ahead of her as she sets to launch her new minibusiness at www.littlenuh.com For more information check out Evita’s blog at:
