MEDEIROS FASHION P.R
Originally from Providence, RI, president Emma Medeiros received her degree in Integrated Marketing Communications from Emerson College, located in Boston, MA, in May of 2012.
Married that same summer to her best friend, Adam, she started a blog called Curves, Cats, and Creams, which focused on bridging the gap between straight size and plus size fashion. Emma explains "I'm so glad I had that journalistic experience because now I know how to pitch members of the press relevant, timely and, most importantly, truly newsworthy stories. I know how they want to be treated and I do my best to live up to that!"
In June of 2015, Emma started Medeiros Fashion Public Relations when after realizing that, out of the thousands of fashion public relations firms in the US, not ONE of them specialized in this exploding industry. Can't have that!!! "To me, fashion is simply FASHION", she states vehemently. "Why should plus size fashion be just an afterthought when the majority of women in this country fall into that category? We want to be sexy, feminine, and fashionable, and designers, retailers, etc, are finally waking up to that fact!"
Happily married with 6 fur babies, kitties Guinevere, Felix, Oscar, Lucy, Ricky, and Cosette, Emma moved to NYC in 2019 in order to fully embrace all the opportunities the fashion industry has to offer. With a mixture of class and sass, the goal of Medeiros Fashion Public Relations is to place plus size fashion on an equal footing with straight size fashion. Emma declares, "There's absolutely NO reason for them to be separate, and, once I accomplish that, I can die a happy woman!"
