Summary

When writing the news release. The aim was to create awareness of the

upcoming fashion show and the grand re-opening of the University boutique. That

5

will ensure that people start planning to attend in advance. Additionally, the news

release was meant to create an interest of people to attend the grand re-opening of the

University boutique and the fashion show. That was done by mentioning that reknown

models in the region and representatives from some of the common fashion brands

will be in attendance. That will motivate more people to attend the two events thus

making them a success. During the fashion show, the clothes in the university

boutique will be show-cased. That indicates that when more people attend, the

university boutique is likely to get more customers of their apparel. Thus, the wide

reach of the news release will promote the university boutique effectively.

The fashion show invitation was created to invite people from various

departments in the university, models, as well as some people from the common

fashion lines. Their attendance will be key to the event. That is because they will pull

a crowd with them. Additionally, they will have some roles to play during the fashion

show. The color theme of the invitation letter is warm and welcoming. It will evoke

the interest of reading it once the invitation card is delivered to an office. Additionally,

it will be visible to others in the office. The print advertisement is meant to advertise

the grand reopening of the university boutique. It will create awareness to the

customers that were shopping at the boutique and also attract new customers. The

print advertisement will be shared all over the university and the surroundings. It will

also be shared through social media to have a wider reach. The color of the print

advertisement will be used to attract people to read the advertisement on the notice

boards. The print advertisement will be successful as it will have a wide reach.

Additionally, it is attractive. The logo and the slogan of the university boutique are

effective in passing a message about the university boutique. For instance, the slogan

attracts customers by assuring them that they will find high-quality clothes at

affordable prices.
