The 14th annual Breast Cancer Care London Fashion Show took place on Wednesday 6th October, so we caught up with two of the models from the show, who have both been affected by the illness.


Liz Thorne

BCC model Liz What was it like being a model at the BCC show?

It was really rather indescribable! I have never felt so humbled, privileged happy, emotional and busy and special and gorgeous and excited and proud before and all at the same time!

What was your best moment from the big night?  

Liz on catwalk with a model I can't name just one! Here are a few: standing in the wings waiting to go on, hearing the crowd go mad, dancing to Florence and the Machine backstage, seeing the girls come off with the biggest smiles, stepping out onto the catwalk for the first time, seeing my table of friends and family standing up for me, the standing ovation I shared with everyone on stage after the big finale, seeing a man I have never met standing on his chair cheering for me, coming off stage after the show and seeing the wonderful stylist Rachel with tears in her eyes, having a quiet moment in the empty make-up room after the show and realising just what we had all achieved.

What are your favourite QVC products? 

I love the OPI nail care range, particularly the Nail Envy. It really helps repair brittle nails caused by some of the medication I am on and the colour ranges are fantastic! I am also a big fan of the Lock and Lock storage sets, we use them all the time in my house. They are so handy for taking packed lunches to work and storing several different foods in the same block. They are a real space saver!

What was it like being a model at the BCC show?

Being a model was one of the proudest days of my life, as the Breast Cancer Care team transformed me into a star for the day.  It was fantastic, magical and inspirational to be in the spotlight and help raise money and awareness for this organisation, who gives support to any person who may be diagnosed with breast cancer.

What was your best moment from the big night? 

Brian & other models on catwalk

The best moment was walking onto the catwalk with the other 24 models who all looked absolutely stunning and receiving a standing ovation; knowing that there were celebrities in the huge audience.  It was so emotional and very difficult to hold back the tears. The excitement is still with me and the memory of this day will last forever.


What are your favourite QVC products? 

It's hard to choose a favourite product on QVC as they are all great value for money, and there is a really good choice.

    I think this is such an important event, I was diagnosed last May, Everyone from Nurses Doctors were so kind, at such a time when you feel so vunerable. When you need that support it is there from them, yes I was lucky enough that I have a good support system – my wonderful husband, my lovely daughter who rings me every day because she lives in the south and I am in the north, and my friends, but I know people who are not so lucky, and the Breast cancer care have cared. Good Luck Everyone
    I will be watching.
