Live TV presenting has to be one of my favourite activities, and QVC has to be the most high octane of them all! Going on air is always exciting, as nothing can compare to the electricity in the studio as the cameras roll.
I watched the film Joy recently, which I adored, and really identified with the moment that the studio lights turn on, when Jennifer Lawrence finds herself temporarily mesmerised by the brightness before regaining her composure and launching into her pitch to sell her floor mop! I was rooting for her, even though I knew it wasn’t real! If you haven’t seen the film you must. It’s brilliant.
But whilst live TV is in itself exciting, presenting a new range adds an even greater dimension, and this month I launched the first Spring 2016 products of my At Home with Alison range for QVC.
The stars of the show were two beautiful mirrors, the Elysee (pictured below) and the Versailles (pictured above). With their stunning and ornately detailed frames, hand-finished with a champagne silver paint, these two new mirrors set the bar for what I know is going to be an amazing season of At Home furniture and accessories.
We’ve all worked really hard to bring these mirrors to reality, and the team at QVC backed me all the way – better yet, they also managed to bring them to our viewers at an amazing price, delivered to the door no less (which means a lot when you don’t have to schlepp it home yourself!).
These mirrors are quite large items and it’s important to have a little think about where a piece will sit best in an interior scheme before purchasing, so it was absolutely great to get all the viewer feedback and questions on my Instagram account (alisoncork_home) and Twitter account (@AlisonCork). I love talking to our customers and hearing what they have to say.
So At Home with Alison is off the starting block for 2016! I hope you enjoy the shows and please feel free to talk to me as often as you like!
