Vogue magazine plugs WHQ 2014
Strike a pose...
In April 2014, totally out of the blue, the international fashion bible ‘Vogue’ recommended our ‘World HQ Uplifting Groove’ weekend parties & printed one of our flyer images & our web address.
We were obviously pleased & also quite surprised.
There's nothing to it...
The end result was, along with all the startled texts we got from female chums, we also got a load of really pushy types, emailing us like nutcases, asking…
‘Who is your PR company…?’
We found that hilarious, as it was only a tiny little plug & stuff just happens - we'd never use PR companies
We're underground & don't court the media & WHQ doesn't even pop up in DJ or Club publications that often.
It seems that many folk happily pay a fortune, for even such a tiny mention to gain 'influence' – That's not for WHQ.
We just run a genuinely girl friendly Club, try to do good things & hope that will have a positive effect.
How they found out about us we will never know..? We wrote & thanked them anyway though, as it was nice of them to include us & that’s the way our Momma taught us to behave.
It seems from what we've been hearing lately, that it's only really in the past year or so, that the penny seems to have dropped in parts of the fashion world, inc. Vogue, that (other than Naomi) the entire World population, may not all actually be white.
They have shocking stats on their (none) use of Black staff & models & since 2014, we have learned more context on the magazine, that's taken the shine off our itty bitty plug a bit.
All just a bit of a Chuckle...
Suppose it's proof that sometimes you don’t really need PR companies, Marketing departments, tea towels on your noggin, or any daft stuff like that…
