The King of Bling launches his fashion range right here!
I was honoured to be asked to launch the JM by Julian Macdonald jewellery range at QVC and it sold out even before we finished the hour! It was an honour to get the second phone call asking me to launch the JM by Julian Macdonald fashion range.
Julian and I had so much fun together catching up, of course about fashion but also life in general. Julian is a genuine kind-hearted, down-to-earth gentleman who happens to be a super-fabulous designer. He knows what he wants and what he likes and is a perfectionist. Watching him work with the set designers and models before the show was a real treat.
We created a two-hour catwalk show featuring a fashion range that he has created just for QVC. These are a few pics of my favourite pieces including the dress I was wearing.
He’s a Welsh boy whose mum taught him to knit, and when he told his father what his dream was his father replied, “Things like that don’t happen to people like us.”. His determination drove him to become a top fashion designer showing his collections all over the world and dressing some of the most famous and beautiful women globally.
He was appointed chief designer at Givenchy in 2000, as successor to Alexander McQueen and that’s quite something. He was also named British Fashion Designer of the Year in 2001 and received an OBE in 2006.
