Network. Network. Network. ABBY BAINE DUNN takes this mantra to heart every day in her one-woman firm, Abby Dunn PR & Consulting. “I got to where I am today by making the most of an expansive network spanning from our incredible North Shore community to time in New York City—the original hub of media, fashion, and PR,” she says. But networking alone doesn’t guarantee success. An energetic person by nature, she adds, “As a one-woman show, I am all about working hard and fast, staying in the game, and adapting to new ways of doing business, while keeping in touch with all of my contacts throughout!” Dunn embraces her deep North Shore roots—she graduated from New Trier High School and embraces her current-day life in Wilmette with her husband, Danny, and three children. In fact, she names her husband as her greatest inspiration and role model. “He is incredibly driven and hardworking and has been so supportive of my career. I am very grateful for him.” With more than 20 years’ experience handling media and public relations for notable clients such as Chanel, Burberry, Tiffany & Co, and Emporio Armani, as well as North Shore clients including Bunny & Babe, athene and The 60’s Beauty Lash, Dunn is adept at promoting luxury brands. Her optimism and joie de vivre shine through in every aspect of her life, including her personal fashion choices. “Style should be fun, expressive, and an extension of your personality,” she says. “And, it’s so important in life to take the high road and keep moving forward in a positive way no matter what the circumstances or energies around us.”
