As we continue to get to know faces from around Topman HQ we move on to the Press department. This week is Joe our Press Co-ordinator who would open a zoo if he didn't work in PR...
Name? Job Title?
Joe Williams, PR Co-ordinator.
When and how did you get your job?
I started in May 2011. I was working in a fashion PR agency previously and was ready for a change. The job vacancy came up, so I applied and here I am.
What's the best part of your job?
Working with such a great team.
What's your typical day consist of?
A normal day consists of sending out samples, checking press coverage and plenty of chatting on the phone!
How would you describe your own style?
I think my style is pretty eclectic, I like mixing up old and new pieces.
Who/what is your main inspiration within fashion?
Robert Rabensteiner is my style hero.
What's the most embarrasing item of clothing I own?
A pair of sailor trousers...I'm not entirely sure where I was planning on going in them!
If you didn't do this job, what else would you like to be doing?
If I wasn't in PR I'd want to work with animals. Maybe open a zoo?!
Do you have any advice for anyone that wants to get into the fashion industry?
Just try and get as much experience as possible through internships etc whilst studying.
That's it for this week, but take a look at the Denim Jacket Project our press team brought to life (HERE).
