When this fashion aficionado isn’t soaking in the sounds of the symphony or the sun on Malibu Beach, Alle Fister is hard at work marketing for some of the top-tier names in retail, specifically e-commerce giant shopbop.com, Nanette Lepore, Ruthie Davis, Smythe, and French Connection to name a few.
She heads Bollare (which in Italian translates to “to brand”) Communications, a full service public relations and communications firm in West Hollywood and New York City where she busts her stilettos to bring luxury brands like these to your credit cards and closets through the use of multiple mediums such as print and online promotions.
