WHO WE ARE. [ABOUT US]
The Riviere Agency is an award-winning, full service Integrated Marketing Communications, Public Relations, Event Production and Influencer Marketing firm with physical offices in New York and Miami and a satellite office in Los Angeles. We believe in honesty and integrity. The over-promising and under-delivering approach is not our style. Our team has over 30 years of combined experience in the fashion, beauty and lifestyle industry and a proven track record of providing affordable marketing, public relations, influencer marketing, social media and event production services. We help fashion, accessories, beauty and lifestyle brands with their PR, event production, influencer connecting and marketing needs.
We are a well-oiled, well-organized team of seasoned creative professionals who are passionate about marketing, events and public relations for fashion, lifestyle and beauty brands. The senior team has years of industry experience working for major PR and branding firms and directly with brands themselves. The Riviere Agency sets itself apart from the competition by offering a fresh and unique approach to fashion, beauty and lifestyle marketing. We have developed niche expertise merging experiential event production with public relations to create events that build buzz, encourage serial social sharing and have a full list of the right attendees whether it be a well-rounded list of influencers or a curated list of editors.
Our New York office is located in the financial district down the street from Conde Nast and Time Inc. as well as other major fashion media players such as Refinery 29 and Latina magazine. Our LA office is located in the city's fashion district in Downtown LA, which serves as a hub for celebrity stylists to pull for their red carpet needs.
What you won't find here is a cookie-cutter approach to PR, event production and marketing. Not only do we like to think outside the box, we like to build our own box.
Fashion, beauty or lifestyle Brand Entering The US?
You're In The Right Place...
The US market is the holy grail for many fashion and beauty brands and every year brands that have achieved success in other countries and on other continents attempt to break into the US market. Often brands attempt to enter utilizing the same strategy that led to success on their home turf, only to find out that the US market is vastly different and the American consumer has a completely different psyche.
The Riviere Agency knows and understands the US market and can help your brand have a more successful launch often with a significantly smaller budget than you would encounter if you approached it alone. We have the contacts and the knowledge to save time and resources on everything from trade show set-up and sales to showroom placement and web development. Contact us today to learn more about the services we offer.
Let's get personal.
