We’re very excited to announce that we’ve been nominated for not one, but two categories at the PRmoment Awards 2019. We were nominated for EVENT OF THE YEAR and HEALTH, BEAUTY, RETAIL & FASHION MARKETING COMMUNICATIONS CAMPAIGN OF THE YEAR for our work with Umpf on ‘Made Up Leeds’ for LeedsBID.

We’ve worked with LeedsBID for the past two years on a multitude of projects that showcases the cultural spectrum of Leeds. Everything from fashion to art to hair and beauty, Leeds has got it and we’ve done it!

SLBPR has always been synonymous with hair, beauty and fashion. Since our conception nearly 20 years ago we have worked with the some of the biggest brands in the UK, cementing a reputation as one of the key communications agencies brokering sponsorship deals and working with the backstage teams at the international fashion weeks. Working with forward thinking clients such as BaByliss PRO allows us to partner with the UK’s most innovative and talented designers, hair teams, make-up artists, stylists, photographers and videographers and fashion production companies. The fashion industry is worth more to the UK economy than the car industry – not that you would ever know from media coverage.

And now we are proud that our MD, Sharon, is on the newly formed British Beauty Council (BBC). Set up as a sister organisation to the British Fashion Council the BBC is seeking to highlight the importance and size of the British beauty industry – in terms of its worldwide influence, the number of people it employs and the revenue it contributes to the UK economy. The aim is to lean on government to improve training and recognise the impact the beauty profession has on all of us. 


Being shortlisted for these awards is fantastic for our personal and professional profile and also demonstrates a recognition of the important work around beauty, fashion and retail.
