It was with the greatest of pleasure that I looked after some super lovely and very glam ladies last week at QVC.
Kim Mendelson, our ever popular and much adored Canadian fashion designer, was celebrating her 12th Anniversary with us and to add a special something to the shows we invited some of Kim's loyal ladies who shop with us to come along and be a part of the live shows – the first with Debbie Flint and the second with Jilly Halliday in the afternoon.
Glen Campbell and I met up with them before the show and spent time chatting with them about, well all sorts but, obviously about their little 'addiction' to Kim's clothes. In fact, I was told on more than one occasion that nothing BUT Kim & Co grace their bodies these days! We found out what sort of things they'd want to ask Kim, anda nice cup of tea and biscuits helped ease everyone's jitters at the mere thought of being on TV! (though a gin & tonic would've worked better if you ask me…)
Next up was a tour of QVC, including our live studios. I think Simon Biagi was thrilled to have a bevy of glam ladies tip toe into watch his show! We showed everyone where it all happens.
Out live gallery is where all the information is instantly processed and delivered into our ears so we can let you know what's happening with colours, sizes and stock levels – what goes on in the gallery totally impressed everyone and comments like, "I don't know how you do it." It certainly boosted my ego, though I let the cat out of the bag by admitting it's just like eavesdropping whilst having your own chat! Sssshhhh, do not tell my friends that's what I do!
Back in Studio One, Dan, our floor manager soothed any last minute nerves and, before they could say Today's Special Value they were live and looking relaxed and gorgeous on QVC!
Everyone LOVED the shows and as we all chatted afterwards with Kim, Glen and the always fabulous models, Joy, Tania, Goody and Cordelia, the genuine appreciation for Kim, her designs and indeed QVC was obvious to see.
I LOVED meeting all the girls and those handsome male companions (you know who you are!) So, thank you to you all!
Lots of love,
