Inside the public’s fascination with publicists
While PR has historically been a behind-the-scenes profession, fashion publicists are increasingly embracing more public profiles and press coverage for themselves, not just their clients. For example, Cait Bailey of Align Public Relations (who represents Alix Earle and Alexandra Cooper) has been profiled in The New York Times and Gia Kuan (with Area, Telfar and Luar as clients) was on the cover of Paper magazine’s comeback issue in January. There’s always been a sense of allure surrounding publicists, but now that fascination is focused on the nitty-gritty work and what a realistic day in their lives looks like. {Business of Fashion/paywalled}
