Alle Fister was one of the earliest employees at Shopbop, the shopping destination called “the online powerhouse of contemporary fashion” by no less than The New York Times. She headed their PR and corporate communications for several years before using the timing of Amazon’s 2006 purchase of Shopbop to make her own transition – she started her own PR firm, taking on Shopbop as her first client. Bollare is Italian for “to brand”, and the firm represents beauty, fashion and lifestyle clients with all the flair that the name suggests. Smythe, ghd, Timberland, Vans, Kevyn Aucoin and BeachMint Portfolio are just a few of the top-tier brands that entrust their publicity campaigns to the savvy professionals at Bollare.
