Raleigh chef and restauranteur Ashley Christensen is well known for her culinary prowess. But she recently lent her talent to another arena – fashion. Christensen teamed up with Alabama designer Natalie Chanin and her Alabama Chanin line to create a collection for women. The line is now available on alabamachanin.com.
This week, the Triangle gets a peek at new styles from one of fashion’s most celebrated designers, Carolina Herrera, during a trunk show July 19-20 at Vermillion in North Hills. Vermillion adds the designer starting with the 2018 resort line. Up-and-coming fashion designer Wes Gordon recently came onto the Carolina Herrera brand as one of the label’s head designers. His influence has infused the collection with bold, poppy color and fun, youthful designs.
For the fifth year, Belk invited up-and-coming Southern designers to submit their lines for the department store’s Southern Designer Showcase. And once again, the Triangle was well-represented among the finalists and winners. Raleigh native Marissa Heyl, founder of Symbology Clothing, was among the competition’s five winners. Symbology specializes in fair-trade clothing for women created in partnership with female artisans from India and the West Bank.
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".
