Crosby began her journey of fashion PR while managing an in-house marketing and PR department for an online jewelry retailer. She had just finished grad school and wrote her thesis on fashion PR. Crosby’s thesis would be the inspiration for what would develop into PR Couture.

PR Couture started a new venture of fashion PR forum due to the lack of information available online. Her style was a brand new approach for fashion PR, utilizing social media to gain pull. Crosby has since received accolades including being invited to New York fashion week to blog for Microsoft. She has also been presented with a Blogger of the Year award.
