The firm, which owns and markets its own branded footwear under the Marc Fisher Footwear and Marc Fisher Footwear LTD labels, today hosted a Mother’s Day brunch celebrating fashion editors who are also making an impact as moms.
Amanda Fisher, the company’s creative director and daughter of founder Marc Fisher, hosted the brunch at the family-style bakery and café Maman in Manhattan’s Tribeca neighborhood along with Shanya Perera and Elizabeth Banach of Marc Fisher’s public relations team.
Among the fashion editors celebrated: Erin Loop, executive director at Marie Claire; Erin Sumwalt, fashion director at People StyleWatch; Mallory Schlau, senior fashion market editor at Harper’s Bazaar; Julee Wilson, digital fashion and beauty director at Essence; Shane Clark, senior fashion and accessories editor at Brides; and Footwear News’ business editor Sheena Butler-Young.
Pediatric and adult sleep and nutrition consultant Ingrid Prueher, also known as “the baby sleep whisperer,” was also on hand to offer tips to the mothers managing children and careers in fashion and media.
In addition to marketing its own branded footwear, Marc Fisher Footwear is the footwear licensee for popular brands such as Guess, Ivanka Trump and Tommy Hilfiger. Last year, Marc Fisher launched its #MAKEYOURMARC campaign backed by model Karlie Kloss, who had been involved with a number of philanthropic projects and also starred in Marc Fisher LTD’s fall ’15 campaign.
