Lily has decades of experience in the fashion industry (working across a multitude of facets: modelling, sales, production, events, marketing strategy, sponsorships) but predominantly her experience is in Public Relations across both fashion and lifestyle brands. As a result a majority of the skills she is able to bring to her new role at Showroom22 stem from more than seven-years experience working in public relations, largely in Sydney, focusing on marketing and strategy at senior management level.
Clients have included global brands such as Absolut Vodka, Chivas Regal, Mercedes-Benz, BMW, The Future Laboratory, Artbank Australia, Adidas, Nespresso and Shopbop.com. Given much of her career has been spent within agencies, she’s a strong multi-tasker and thrives while managing a team over multiple projects and this is reflected in many of the creative campaigns she has created and produced for her clients.
Throughout Lily’s career to date she’s enjoyed building new relationships from inbound and outbound leads. She has managed large influencer/ambassador and multi-channel marketing campaigns for both Chivas Regal (Chris Noth, GQ) and Absolut Vodka (Baz Luhrmann x Bazmark). More recently, during her last tenure at PEAD PR she was instrumental in establishing and growing Nespresso New Zealand’s first Influencer/Ambassador programme, not only selecting and onboarding talent but producing high quality local content which is now instrumental to their global annual strategy.
Lily has built strong connections in the creative community and her enthusiasm and drive for the fashion, lifestyle and beauty industries is coupled with a strong analytical and strategic sense and natural inclination to make things happen. She will be a welcome addition to Showroom 22 and our clients.
