Fresh from New York Fashion Week , with a pit stop at home in Cambridgeshire for a night in-between, I boarded the train heading South to see my home city shine for London Fashion Week. We are known to be brave, to be bold, and also to be resilient. This English way was never more present than at the shows this season. Perplexed by Brexit, and our weak political situation, designers were determined to brush this aside and confidently display their bold, fearless British collections.
Apart from the minor drama of my 2-year-old daughter getting a Lego stuck up her nose just before my flight, leaving England was as smooth as ever (thank goodness for tweezers!). Gatwick to JFK went in the blink of an eye and before I could believe it, I was at Cooper Hewitt watching the ever-delightful Tory Burch show . It felt good to be back in New York for Fashion Week , surrounded by tall buildings, yellow taxis, and even taller models. There were trips uptown, downtown, and to Brooklyn.
Oh, Italy, let me count the ways I love thee! This summer, my family and I decided to take a trip around Tuscany. Starting in Forte dei Marmi, we then explored lovely Lucca, fiery Florence, and spectacular Cetinale and Siena. It was quite the Italian adventure and wonderful to be able to explore Tuscany’s diverse landscapes and culture, from the sea blues and society of the coast to the rural roughness of the Sienese hills, and then on to the grand Renaissance cities of Lucca and Florence.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
