Cirqlate PR is founded by Jen Wakelin whose years of experience in the business, and warmth of spirit has made her a firm fixture in the fashion community, undoubtedly for many years to come.
There are many many Fashion PR’s out there but Cirqlate really stands out for me for so many reasons. The team is friendly, lovely and professional, and their showroom focuses on brands that are quality, unique and fashion forward. With a stable of clients like Talulah, One Teaspoon and Stylestalker, the showroom is always buzzing with activity from celebrity pop ins to magazine editors.
Frankie and Pia are Jen’s right hand ladies, and you can often find them working late into the night on events and projects. We got a sneak peek into their lives and what really happens in a Fashion PR company!
