What attitude or personality best describes Marie Saeki PR and the lines that you represent? Our team is an international mix of open-minded and positive people, with a strong fashionable attitude and a sense of humor. The lines we represent reflect the personality of our office.
What are some of the differences between working with the larger publications versus smaller ones or websites? The differences are similar yet respective to the scale of the media company. For example, the monthly and seasonally printed publications have to forecast what is going to happen months in advance, and we have to wait to see if our products have been selected for editorials. Websites are very exciting because the Internet is able to instantly broadcast something new and there is an instant result to show our clients.
What is your average day at the showroom like? Answering a very, very large amount of emails and writing an even bigger amount to our clients, editors, stylists, and journalists. We are in constant communication because new ideas are always being brainstormed and pitched. Samples and products are sent out daily for photo shoots and other product placements. Depending on the season, fashion shows and events are planned and executed. There really is no average day because each day presents new tasks and requests. Our biggest daily issue is deciding where we should order lunch.
What is the most stressful part of your job? Worrying about not having results to show our clients.
And, your favorite part of your job? Pitching, it's like a game. It is always fun to find the right angle when introducing a new concept or fashion happening.
