The first thing visitors to plus-size fashion conference The CurvyCon , which took place this past weekend in New York, were greeted with were body-positive affirmations— everywhere : walls emblazoned with signs reading “The thick life chose me,” the phrase “I love her” written with an arrow pointing directly at the person standing beneath it, a mirror for selfies with encouraging words splashed across it.
For designer Michelle Smith of Milly, a brand known for its ultra-feminine cocktail dresses, President Donald Trump's inauguration in January coincided with the planning process for her Fall 2017 collection—set to debut the following month during New York Fashion Week—in what felt like a bang. "I felt overwhelmed with all that was happening in the world while I was designing this collection," she said.
Hillary Clinton’s very name is synonymous with the pantsuit . Her love of the two-piece has, in fact, been so documented over the years that it’s inspired everything from think pieces and fashion editorials to memes to Twitter handles. And while she’s worn styles made by Ann Taylor Loft to Giorgio Armani, her latest favorite is the creation of two 31-year-olds, Sali Christeson and Eleanor Turner, who are at the helm of a label you’ve probably never heard of: Argent .
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".
