Faced with the imperatives of profitability, the most prominent PRs (Public Relations) have had to adopt techniques borrowed from the business world. Sylvie Picquet Damesme and Pierre Rougier, founders of PR Consulting, understood this when they opened their New York office more than fifteen years ago.
First client of PR Consulting was Vidal Sassoon, a brand owned by Procter & Gamble, » explains Pierre Rougier. With them, we were integrated into a whole process, whereas in France, the role of the press officer was still mainly focused on styling. »
Creating the event to be relayed on social networks
Press offices have become war machines, and those who have been able to develop an overall vision have better anticipated the other major revolution of the beginning of the century: the explosion of social networks.
Today, fashion is everywhere, permanently exposed, » adds Sylvie Picquet Damesme. Between the new media, Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest and blogs…, the number of interlocutors is counted in millions.
» When an article can be picked up 250 million times on social networks, a rumour can spread in three minutes on the Web or when a simple stolen photo of Kate Moss wearing a new bag can ensure the success of a product, the whole management of the image is turned upside down. To be relayed on social networks, you have to create the event.
Brands are outbidding themselves. Illustration: fashion shows that look like blockbusters.
