Manish Bhatt, Founder Director, Scarecrow Communications, said, “What makes this triple acquisition really exciting is the fact that while all three brands are iconic, each has a unique tone of voice. They all have done some really brave, clutter-breaking work, globally. It’s indeed a privilege to work on brands with such great legacy.”

Kavita Khiara, Marketing Head, Steve Madden and Kenneth Cole, added “Increasingly fashion consumers expect from the brands that they adorn the same tonality that is the signature to its clothing and accessories ; bringing in a freshness and yet carrying forward the soul of the brand is a communication challenge that we see the team at Scarecrow well adept at handling."

Kenneth Cole, the American Fashion House founded in 1982, has not only stirred the world with its collections, but also with its thought-provoking, hard-hitting campaigns, often revolving around social issues.

Quiksilver, founded in 1969, is a California-based company and the world’s largest manufacturer of surfwear and other boardsport-related equipment.

Steve Madden too needs no introduction. Unrivalled and iconic, this New York based footwear and accessories brand boasts a staggering presence in over 55 countries.
