Ghostly goings on at QVC…

10

Hello,

Coming up in a moment – anyone scared of ghosts? I think you might like this one…!  But first, a massive thank you from me to my friends and colleagues at QVC. Every year, QVC supports not just our corporate charity Breast Cancer Care but also three smaller charities. Staff members nominate charities that are close to their hearts, everyone votes and the three with the most votes become that year’s chosen charities.

As many of you will know, I have for some time supported Headway, the brain injury charity, in memory of my sister Deborah who died in 2010 from a brain injury when she was just 39. To my great joy, Headway was voted as one of 2017’s charities, and through the year my fabulous colleagues have been spending money on sales and raffles and silly guessing games, and eating cake at cake sales (LOTS of cake!) to help raise money. Last week we were finally able to tot up the total and present a cheque for over £15,000 to Headway. Here’s the photo – from left to right, that’s our CEO Rob Muller, Anna Kerr and Peter McCabe from Headway, and me! I am so hugely grateful to work for a company which makes things like this possible… thank you, thank you, thank you!

Now… things that go bump in the night. Sort of. Well, not really. Iconic British range Ghost London is launching at QVC! We’ve had their beautiful wedding collection for a while, where you can get your dresses dyed to order in a number of beautiful colours. But the main collection launches at 6pm on Thursday 22nd March. I’m going to be presenting it, and you will probably recognise my TWO co-hosts – the lovely Evey Amery Kurlander, who brings us Join and other fashion ranges, and Touker Suleyman (probably best known for his role on Dragon’s Den) who owns Ghost.

The range started in 1984, and by the 90s was showing at New York fashion week, modelled by Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell. It’s known for its feminine, timeless pieces, vintage-influenced designs and use of beautiful flowing fabrics. Its trademark though is its use of colour, using a special garment dye process which gives each piece a textured, unique finish. A little bit urban, a little bit boho, this is such an exciting range to have at QVC. I thought I’d just show you a couple of pieces ahead of the show – I love this longline navy jacket, loosely structured and so comfortable and elegant.

And, although I’m really not a pink person, I fell for this little blush pink jacket with its lovely floaty style. Perfect for a wedding, maybe? So do join us on Thursday at 6pm, it’s going to be fun!

Love Jackie x

    Jackie, caught your shows on Thursday evening, you wore a lovely black top with Biba design, it’s not on the QVC site, will it be available or can you advise where I might purchase one please?
    many thanks

      Hi Debbie,
      It is a Biba one and I got it here at QVC when we did sell Biba. Sadly we don’t anymore, and not sure if that top is still available elsewhere, sorry!

    Hi Jackie,
    You are right to feel lucky to work for qvc and to be part of a massive organisation that can make a difference. That is a huge amount for headway. Wonderful. It’s very sad how so many people are under so much stress daily with workplaces but have to pay bills. You look lovely in the two jackets by the way. I don’t know that range at all!x
