Monique Huey-Jones began her career on the red carpet.. literally.
At the start of her career at PMK, one of the largest celebrity PR firms in the world, Monique was pushed onto the red carpet with one job: to walk the first celebrity who arrived. One look at Drew Barrymore as she arrived for an escort and Monique had officially fallen in love with the entertainment industry.
Throughout her 8-year career at PMK, she worked in company's Los Angeles office and relocated to Chicago to open PMK, Chicago. After years of successfully representing celebrities as s personal publicist, she quickly discovered a close relationship between stars and the labels they wore. Trusting her instincts, Monique put in a cold call to luxury brand, Louis Vuitton, and created a luxury fashion brand division solidifying partnerships between fashion houses and celebrities.
Monique has spearheaded campaigns for celebrity talent, corporate luxury brands, and start-ups working with top brands such as: Louis Vuitton, Tod’s, Piaget, Coach, Pomellato, Trunk Club, Fendi and H.Stern. Within one account, she is able to attain press for the designer, secure celebrity placement to wear the brand, build an exclusive even list, and fill a red carpet with media to cover it all.
In 2007, she started her own PR firm, Monique Jones PR, with offices in Los Angeles and Chicago.
