Introducing Giles Deacon to the world of QVC!


Jill Franks with Giles DeaconGiles Deacon…where do I begin?

Humble, kind, honest, humorous, these are just a few words to describe the incredibly talented guest of Sunday 10th March at 3pm.

Being a designer girl it was an absolute honour to have been asked to launch his jewellery range,
Libertine. I had no idea what to expect. I had enjoyed wearing his pieces for a few weeks prior to the show and was so looking forward to spending some time with him prior to the show.

He has dressed Kelly Brook (including the dress our model Gerry was wearing during the show), Victoria Beckham and many other beautiful famous faces around the world. He was in the same class at St Martin's London College of Fashion as Stella McCartney and Alexander McQueen. He launched his own fashion range in 2004 and won best British designer in 2007.

I had seen his promo on air in the build up to the show so it was like I already knew him when we met. We hit it off immediately as he has a great sense of humour with an incredible humility and honesty that shines through. Plus a quirkiness that got me from the word hello! You know me, the quirkier the better!

He is a true gentle giant. He was very excited yet nervous about what to expect as let's face it, it's not the most normal job in the world (if you have never experienced QVC that is)! He had no idea what to expect so I assured him he was in good hands and he would love every minute of it. The show flew buy with seven sell outs and before we knew it we were congratulating him and asking him to come back as soon as.

My favourite piece was the lobster bangle and the rather camp Village People collection.

I thought you might like to see this great shot taken before the show (above left) plus check out the great article that appeared in the Daily Telegraph on Wednesday.

Who's your favourite designer and what did you buy from Giles' show?

Big QVC hugs,

Jill X
