Some people say that money makes the world go round. But we at George PR will argue that it’s actually fashion…and beauty. George PR is a boutique PR agency specializing in our two vices mentioned above as well as lifestyle & consumer industries. We strongly believe creative positioning and consistent product placement are key in gaining exposure, building awareness, and ultimately motivating sales. And because our bottom line is for our clients to reach theirs, we develop and execute unique, custom PR campaigns for each business.
We maintain that PR starts at the ground level and focus on building a one-on-one working relationship with the designers, creators and owners we represent. Behind the doors of george PR lies a haven of creative ideas, stylish knowledge, fresh thinking and a team determined to mix all the above with fun.
