The Peachy team and I were excited to head into London to Stylist Live last Thursday to support long time client, Yull Shoes. In addition to supporting Sarah, we were able to make some new connections with exciting brands, witness the best of the high street on the catwalk and learn more about the journey of Stylist Magazine.
The journey of the magazine really resonates with me. In 2009, one month into my first PR internship, Stylist Magazine launched. I was still becoming familiar with the media landscape at the time but I realised the importance of this launch and I distinctly remember picking up a copy of the Angelina fronted Issue 1. Stylist then stood out as one of the most exciting publications for women and, thanks to Lisa Smosarski and her editorial team, it is still one of the most exciting publications that breaks ground with its initiatives and content .
Six years on, I've learnt, I've grown and I now run a thriving PR agency with an exciting young team and inspiring clients. Six years on, Stylist is the modern woman's bible and is as on the pulse, as relevant and as fresh as it was when it launched.
Stylist is a title that we all get excited about placing in, and, in turn, one that clients love to find themselves in. Stylist Live is the next evolution for such a loved and respected title and we can only offer our congratulations to the team for doing such an incredible job.
Full of exciting brands, unique and interactive experiences, stimulating workshops and talks as well as catwalks, hair and make up master-classes and book signings, Stylist Live had it all and marks a stunning achievement for this free, jam-packed weekly.
We can't wait to see where the next 6 years takes this title. Continuing to stay relevant and moving with technology, the team behind Stylist is building a brand that transcends the magazine's original purpose. We love the fact that we are able to work with magazines such as Stylist and we wonder how our journey will unfold alongside theirs over the coming years. So much has happened since I stepped into PR as Stylist was being brought to life that I'm excited to see what the next six years holds for Peachy PR and for the Peaches that are currently making their own way and building their path in this exciting industry.
