Introducing Socially Acclaimed - A New Digital PR & Social Media Agency Founded by Kelly Cutrone, Emily Bungert & Stefanie Skinner
For Immediate Release - New York, NY, September 2, 2014:
People’s Revolution is paving a progressive path in the world of digital communications with the launch of Socially Acclaimed, a Digital PR & Social Media Agency, in partnership between People’s Revolution CEO Kelly Cutrone, President Emily Bungert and former People’s Revolution employee recently turned President of Socially Acclaimed, Stefanie Skinner.
Founded in 1996, People’s Revolution has always been an early adapter within the fashion communications space from creating the first fully sponsored designer off site show space at the Altman Building, to their multi-tiered work throughout the television & entertainment industry, leading in the viral film space with shows such as “Starring” by Jeremy Scott, several films for Agent Provocateur, and DKNY including a Cozy film with All Day EveryDay Director Kai Regan and a follow up DKNY project starring Christina Ricci w/ a directorial debut by Sting’s son Jake Sumner in 2009. Further People’s was one of the first agency to understand the power of social media from Facebook, to Instagram and Twitter where they have approx. 200k, significantly more than any other fashion PR firm.
Addressing the growing need for PR and marketing for brands in the digital space, the trio launched Socially Acclaimed as a full-service social media, digital marketing and online PR agency that focuses on creating, building and executing strategies that celebrate the lifestyles of brands, personalities and venues across various digital platforms. Offering services including social media consulting & development, influencer programming, content creation (blog posts, videos, etc.), events marketing and more, the new agency will service clients spanning from clothing & accessories labels and lifestyle & fashion websites to various venues, retail stores, restaurants, personalities, and more.
Tapping into the Partners’ wide network of influencers and tastemakers around the world, Socially Acclaimed connects brands and personalities with the insiders who set the trends, and ultimately to their consumer audience to create loyal networks of followers while also increasing brand recognition and sales.
