DMC has managed Smythe’s PR efforts in the Canadian marketplace since the atelier’s earliest days in 2004. As a true member of the team, DMC has played an integral role in Smythe’s accession to becoming an internationally recognized, iconic Canadian brand. Smythe’s One Button Blazer was worn by the Duchess twice during her Royal Visit to Canada in 2011 – a PR coup strategized and secured by DMC and has since been worn at Wimbledon, the London 2012 Olympics and the Commonwealth Games. DMC helped launch Smythe’s video campaign in Fall 2012 and played an integral role in the “Warbler Blazer” campaign (named after the singing group on Glee), a jacket which dedicated a portion of sales to anti-bullying programs and shared a social message through point of sale.
