Designer outsources PR for eponymous paperclip jewellery collections.
Media company Finch & Partners has announced that it will now work on the PR campaigns for jewellery brand Hillier, founded by accessories designer Katie Hillier.
Hillier, who began her career as an accessories designer for fashion brands Marc by Marc Jacobs and Luella, launched her eponymous brand last year, with a new take on animal-themed jewellery.
She won Accessories Designer of the Year in 2009 and is an accessories consultant for Victoria Beckham.
Hillier’s jewellery has a playful feel and her collection focus on a unique range of animal pendant paperclips. Her debut collection was crafted in 18ct gold, with standout shapes including her signature rabbit, owls, sausage dog and mouse, set with diamonds.
At the end of 2010, the Hillier collection was extended to include new creatures, different coloured gemstone choices and silver line.
Finch & Partners will now work on a PR basis for the brand, whose agents previously conducted its PR activities, which have seen it featured in publications including Vogue, Elle and L’Officiel. Finch & Partners has also announced that Hillier has been selected to feature in the new Hunter wellingtons campaign.
