How We Got Started:
After several years of working at Chanel and a local boutique PR agency, I (Jordan Landes-Brenman) teamed up with my former co-worker, Kelly Kepner, to launch our California-based fashion PR agency – Haute House PR & Marketing.
With combined experience in product placement, public relations, entertainment marketing, celebrity outreach and event planning we decided to leverage our talents. We started with a budget of $2,000; which paid for two laptops and two printers.
Fast forward to 2012 and our agency now garners client placements in hundreds of media outlets including; Glamour, Marie Claire, InStyle, Lucky, Teen Vogue, ELLE, DailyCandy.com, Cosmopolitan, US Weekly, OK!, and People Stylewatch Magazine … to name a few.
Our client’s brands can be found on A-list celebrities including Heidi Klum, Taylor Swift, Gisele Bundchen, Nicole Richie, Rachel Bilson, Halle Berry, January Jones, Jessica Alba, Kim Kardashian, Paris Hilton, Kate Hudson, and more.
