Sloane Street Website Launch

Cadogan Estates

To drive awareness of the launch of Sloane Street’s dedicated website and to create engaging content to drive targeted site traffic, APR developed a creative partnership with Harper’s Bazaar to position the site as an international lifestyle portal to the street and its iconic retailers.

The partnership with Harper’s Bazaar, the internationally recognised publication with an established fashion-focused HNW audience, provided creative and engaging Sloane Street fashion content curated by Retail Development Director, Jo Glynn-Smith, driving traffic to the site from the title’s targeted audience.

APR launched the Sloane Street website to key press across property, retail and fashion media with an exclusive event hosted at the much anticipated newly opened Harvey Nichols’ Fifth Floor Roof Terrace, generating highly targeted print and online coverage with an overall OTS of 86,013,921.

‘The Royal Child’ Exhibition

The Athenaeum Hotel

An international media relations campaign was developed around the birth of Prince George of Cambridge with the launch of ‘The Royal Child’ exhibition showcased at the athenaeum hotel and curated by official Royal Photographers Ian Pelham-Turner and Helena Chard. The exhibition featured exclusive and rare photographs of Royal Children since the Victorian era to present day and as part of the experience, guests were treated to a ‘Royal Summer’ afternoon tea.  Positioning the Royal photographers as experts on the historical lives of Royal Children and from their first hand experience of working with the Royal Family, APR generated extensive broadcast and print coverage for the hotel and exhibition across the UK and internationally.
