If you’re an unknown model, fashion designer, jewelry designer, or stylist itching for fame without the help of reality TV (bless your hearts), this post is for you. Jack + Bill is a pop-up fashion Public Relations company started within Porter Novelli, a PR firm whose client roster includes Gillette, Timberland, and South by Southwest. To jump-start their own client roster and show off their mad PR pimping skills, Jack + Bill is offering free representation to one model, one fashion designer, one jewelry designer, and one stylist from mid-July until early September when a fairly important event you may have heard of called “Fashion Week” takes place. What could be better than making a splash during Fashion Week without spending a dime? Nothing, though we bet you’ll want to read the fine print before you sign on any dotted lines. You’ll have to stop posing, designing, and styling for a hot minute to register for and attend a casting call next week.
