Wrangler Denim South Africa, Brand Ambassadors PR (by Denzil Jacobs)

Brand Ambassadors is proud to announce that the public relations and marketing firm now represents Wrangler, one of the three biggest denim brands in the world. Encapsulating the spirit of freedom of being yourself, Wrangler boast over a hundred years of denim heritage and is a firm favourite of international celebrities including Rihanna, Lana Del Rey, Poppy Delevigne and Harrison Ford. “We are thrilled to be asked to represent such an iconic denim brand,” said Brand Ambassadors’ Thulane Hadebe. “This cements our reputation for representing leading local and international fashion and lifestyle brands.” The awarding of the account follows Brand Ambassadors’ successful re-launch of Wrangler in South Africa through a much-talked about event at Newtown’s Turbine Hall in July 2012. Founded in the USA in 1904, Wrangler was originally named Blue Bell and has its roots in workwear. It was renamed Wrangler, meaning “working cowboy” in 1947 and focused on delivering denim innovation and authentic craftsmanship devoted to its denim heritage. The iconic “W” stitch is the signature of Wrangler. Wrangler is available in selected Stuttafords stores.

Brand Ambassadors will be handling a bouquet of responsibilities for Wrangler including media liaison and creating new and innovative ways of providing brand exposure. Under the directorship of Thulane Hadebe, Brand Ambassadors is synonymous with representing the freshest and most relevant faces and brands from SA’s sexiest woman Lee-Ann Liebenberg to chic New York based model Nicola Breytenbach, from chic British footwear brand Butterfly Twists to South Africa’s leading eco luxe label, Fundudzi by Craig Jacobs including South Africa’s fashion and news weekly magazine, Grazia.

Brand Ambassadors represents and builds brands through traditional and non-traditional methods by developing brand-specific marketing strategies.

talking secrets with jen su

Jen Su (Jennifer Su) 01

I recently visited Jen Su at her luxurious Penthouse apartment at the 15 On Orange Hotel in Cape Town. With an impressive television news anchor resume in Hong Kong, China and Asia, Jen is currently a TV News Anchor for Summit TV and Sky News “The African Business Report” as well as entertainment news presenter on SABC3’s The Expresso Show and Flash. She’s also the Hollywood Reporter on 5FM’s Gareth Cliff Mornings radio show. What many people may not know is that is that Jen Su is also a Corporate MC and Singer. “Busy and happy!  I’m MC’ing a lot of corporate events which keeps me very busy on the days that I’m not on TV or radio” says Su.

Jen Su considers herself as a strong networker and well organized person and feels fortunate to have been in a position to help others over the years, “I’m forever grateful for the many people who have believed in me” says Su. Jen has certainty been fortunate to work with some of South Africa’s biggest celebrities, walking red carpets at numerous prestigious events all over the world, including the Cannes Film Festival and New York Fashion Week, and meeting singer Mariah Carey at the One&Only Cape Town gala with Sol Kerzner. Another highlight she mentioned was teaching the Diski Dance to the Diepsloot schoolchildren during the 2010 FIFA World Cup. She recently took part in Danny K‘s latest music video and is looking forward to being one of the presenters and singers for the upcoming South African Music Awards.

A woman with impeccable style, it came as no surprise to me when she mentioned Lipsy for Stuttafords, Bvlgari for Sunglass Hut, La Mer, Louis Vuitton, & BlackBerry as her favorite brands as well as Savour Restaurant at the 15 on Orange and The Bungalow (the stunning revamp of the old La Med in Camps Bay). Su also lists Cape Town, Bangkok and Hong Kong as her favourite destinations in the world.

Just a little secret about Jen… “I love singing opera in the shower at the top of my lungs!”.

Come along as Jen Su gives us the grand tour of her gorgeous 15 On Orange Penthouse apartment.
