Owner & Publicity Director of Magnet Creative Management | Co-Founder of Stylist Box | Mentor at Toronto Fashion Incubator
I've worked for over 18 years in the fashion industry as a manager for fashion designers, talent, models, artists, and performers. Feel free to visit my companies to learn more of what I do: www.magnetcreative.ca and www.stylistbox.com. My full personal bio can be found at www.gailmcinnes.com.
As one of the leading online influencers in Toronto (Madonna follows me on Twitter!), I can help you focus your social media direction for either your business or your own personal brand. How to gain followers, track conversations, ensure consistency across all platforms, build engagement, and more.
During my years working with Gail at B&M Models, I found that Gail always brought a fresh and insightful energy to the Agency.
She helped create the new look of the B&M Website (www.bnmmodels.com); especially with the addition of the "In The Loop" section - helping keep models and clients alike, up to date on current happenings in the industry as a whole. Gail also brought the Agency 'up to speed' with their inter-office connectivity and communication applications.
It was always a pleasure dealing with Gail.
Gail is a beautiful dynamic and electric person.
She has an innate sense connecting with people and liaising them to the right others.
Her vivacious energy ignites the needed spark to start a project as she matches the perfect talent with the client at hand, understanding both sides. With professionalism she makes sure to follow up with the team till the end.
Gail is immersed in the current trends without being lost in it.
She knows who is who without entanglement.
Her ability to observe and discern without judgment as well as her joie de vivre make her very suited to a path she has chosen.
I personally have enjoyed the collaboration and look for more!

Over the years I've worked with many PR professionals on different projects/events, but I've never met any as genuine, dedicated, and hard-working as Gail. Not only is she a PR master and a great entrepreneur, but she also gives back by mentoring new talents at Toronto Fashion Incubator's Passion for Fashion program, and by leading her team in fundraising for Kisses4CANFAR.
Gail's in-depth knowledge of the fashion industry combined with her passion for her business truly set her apart from the rest - the respect she commands in the Canadian fashion industry speaks for itself. She goes above and beyond for her clients - there's no project too big to tackle, and no problem that can't be solved. Plus. she is a social media pro, something so important in today's world.
I would recommend hiring Gail whether its to help you create the perfect event, to put together a media day to launch your products, or for general PR. Whatever your needs may be, she always brings original ideas to the table to make help you shine!
Gail is astounding.
Professional, inspirational and with a wonderfully deep knowledge on what it takes to move business forward.
From small business to multinational clients I've seen first hand her ability to drive growth and implement real world results in public relations, event management and business strategy.
It goes without saying I'd recommend her to any client seeking sustainable results in any category of consumer goods.
Gail is one of Canada's leading communicators and entrepreneurs. Not only has she become a great success for herself in the difficult to break into and even harder to succeed world of fashion PR; she has shared that success and experience with others. Gail is a force to be reckoned with in the best possible way. Her tidal wave effect on the industry is not only a testament to her exceptional skill, but to her generous and philanthropic nature. Many people are aficionados of their own career and business--Gail is passionate about the entire industry and taking the Canadian fashion scene with her to the next level.
Gail mentors many students and young professionals in her field; often connecting them with potential internships and employers. She connected me with a valuable and highly sought after intern position at Chatelaine Magazine- Canada's #1 women's publication. Taking the time out of her hectic schedule to help make this happen might not seem like the biggest deal to some-- but it meant the world to me. Having attended university outside of Canada, I had a particularly hard time getting anyone in the industry to give me the time of day. I was about ready to chew my own arm off (designer bag and all) for a position like this when Gail unexpectedly became my saving grace. Thanks to her, my career began on solid footing and continues to look bright. I know she's done the same for many others and has built a well-deserved reputation as the go-to maven for growing careers.
I give Gail the highest recommendation because she inspires not only through great skill, but what she chooses to do with it. Character matters; and Gail has lots of it.
"If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader." - John Quincy Adams
Gail is an incredible force of drive that is to be reckoned with!!! Her to ability to communicate creative ideas and their benefits seems to be immeasurable. She has successfully developed and filled a void in Canadian Fashion, by introducing designers to industry and high profile personalities. This has pushed local Canadian designers further and farther than before, resulting in increased awareness among the public and the understanding of the importance of local recognition with a worldly flare!
I wonder what limits Gail will push next! No doubt, something extraordinary!
Gail is by far one of the easiest individuals in the Toronto fashion industry to get along with due to the fact that she is a smart, funny and fearless female who is on top of her game.
I'm lucky to have met her, not long ago, and am already in awe of what she has been able to accomplish for both her clients and, in turn, her own name. I'm looking forward to seeing what happens next!
Gail is truly one of a kind! With a passion for fashion she has been on the leading edge of what is happening in Toronto. She has also been very creative to find ways to incorporate fashion brands in with our Degrassi brand.
Thank you Gail! is that simple!
Thank you for your energy, drive and determination, you have been an outstanding supporter!
