The work

FINN hosted an all singing, all dancing press event in central London utilising clever PR tactics and tools to deliver gold-tier press coverage for the brand. FINN worked with Denise Van Outen and Davina McCall to co-host the evening together with a LIVE Q&A all about women, dating, My Mum, Your Dad, and more. Shappi Khorsandi also performed a comedy sketch about midlife dating. The overall approach was to build key relationships with fashion journalists to generate press coverage for AW23 features, showcase the new in a stylish setting, and create social media buzz on the night of the event.
