HOLLY LISS - Social Media Manager
For Helmut Lang, Theory + Theyskens’ Theory
Meet our INSIDER CLICKS feature, who is both talented and digitally diverse.
“I have been with the company for over 3 years. I started as the assistant to the Vice President of Sales at Helmut Lang, and worked extremely hard to prove my loyalty and passion for the brand. There were and still are many 9AM-9PM days. After about a year, my former boss/mentor and I had built a strong relationship, and I expressed my interest in building our social media presence. At the time, brands were just starting to dabble with social media and I saw it as a great opportunity to be one of the innovators in this new space. Within in a year, we were active and growing rapidly on all the major platforms Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Foursquare and now Instagram, Pinterest, Pose and Soundcloud. Our social media channels are my pride and joy.
Furthermore, I was always a digital nerd. As an undergrad at UCLA, one of my favorite courses was about emerging technologies, and one of our projects was to build a website from scratch. I was also reading fashion blogs in 2004. It was only natural that I would fall in love with what I do.” – Holly Liss
FACT: I have a crazy cultural background…growing up in the 818, with two sisters, one brother and being raised Jewish with a Chinese mother and Polish/ Russian father. Things were never dull.
FACT: I am addicted to food porn.
FACT: I have recently moved to Williamsburg, and my cute, stinky French bulldog Chester thinks he is the king of Brooklyn…well he kind of is.
FACT: Goal by 2015: Become Bi-coastal. NY is rad, but come March I really start to miss the beach and that West Coast weather.
