Guest Expert: Kristin Marquet

Kristin’s fashion background began in her late teens when she worked as a fashion model in the late nineties and early two thousands. As a high fashion model in the New York market, she had the opportunity to work with some of the industry’s top photographers, fashion designers, make up artists, and stylists. After two years, she left the industry to complete a bachelor’s degree in English Literature.

Kristin’s marketing journey began when she was the head of marketing and public relations for a law firm in New Jersey. However, after approximately a year, she had enough of office politics and took the risk of launching Marquet Media, LLC. She had immediate success as her clientele expanded rapidly, and the company evolved into a full-service public relations and marketing firm.

Kristin has also contributed to some of today’s most highly read fashion blogs such as CoutureintheCity.com and Stylecaster.com. And now, she is the accessory editor to Stylemom.com. In this role, Kristin attends some of the hottest designers fashion shows at NYFW to find out today’s trends before they hit the magazines and stores.

Kristin has also contributed to some of today’s most popular business publications such as Business Week, Small Business CEO, Business Insider, and Enterprising Woman magazines. As a PR expert, Kristin has also been featured in American Express Small Business, and PR Couture and has been quoted on Entrepreneur.com and BrandMakerNews.com.

Living on Manhattan’s Upper East Side with her fiance, Kristin is also pursuing a master’s degree in marketing and public relations from New York University with plans to graduate May 2012.
