Renowned designer Bob Mackie is celebrating his 3rd Anniversary at QVC and is joining us in the UK for the very first time on Wednesday 9th November. He'll be here with his new collection plus a fabulous Today's Special Value offer - his sketch is pictured left. We caught up with him to find out more…
Are you excited about your first visit to QVC UK?
London is one of my favorite places in the world and to meet my new friends at QVC UK will be an extra bonus!
Tell us about your upcoming Today's Special Value offer
This amazingly comfortable fleece jacket is so easy to wear and care for! There is a touch of metallic glamour at the cuffs. The matching scarf gives it just the right festive, fashion moment. This jacket will liven up all your basic trousers, blouses and sweaters and would be terrific over a simple little dress.
What's the inspiration behind your new collection
Every season we are busy creating new items that you can add to your own, basic wardrobe. I’ve always believed in adding to one’s existing wardrobe by updating and replacing your old items. Starting over from scratch every season has never made sense to me.
We have many new tops in sumptuous fabrics and an array of delicious colours. Velvets, knits and prints with just the right amount of embellishment. Our casual jackets are perfect for every day wear with just enough glamour to take you to that special occasion. Of course we will bring back your favorite styles in new colours!
What is your design process?
Modern fashion today is all about comfort and easy care. Being well-dressed no longer means being uncomfortable. But, unfortunately, some women take this trend as an excuse to look sloppy and unkempt. I try to make modern clothes that are fashionable and modern at the same time. Colour and embellishment are important for us in giving these classic, easy-to-wear shapes a sense of polish and well put-together fashion.
Which celebs would you love to design for and why?
It’s always great fun to design for the hot, new star on the horizon. Over the years I’ve dressed so many celebrities at different times in their lives and careers, and the point that I learned early on was, that these women are human and just like everyone else.
Sometimes these 'Glamour Divas' fight the ravages of time trying to fool their public that they are immortal. I’ve always said a well-dressed woman is properly groomed and dressed appropriately for her life style and the occasion.
Join Bob Mackie on Wednesday 9th November at 12am, 12pm, 3pm, 5pm and 8pm.
