Our Today's Special Value this Wednesday 23rd January comes from Nina Leonard – it's a chic knitted tunic and trouser set. The flattering tunic features contrasting cuffs and hemline with co-ordinating slim-leg trousers – a versatile set which can be worn in any number of ways with your existing wardrobe.
We caught up with the inimitable Lenny Feinberg – the powerhouse behind Nina Leonard – to find out a little more…
What do you love about being on QVC?
Having spent the better part of 30+ years in the fashion industry, I can honestly say that I am more excited, and more passionate about what I do today than I have ever been.
Being a native New Yorker, living and working here my whole life, it has been particularly exciting over the past several years to meet women via QVC TV all around the globe. In Italy, Germany and most fondly here in the UK where television all began for me.
London is most definitely my home away from home and where I feel a very personal and special bond with 'My Ladies' on the other side of the TV screen.
Tell us about the Today's Special Value set
The Today's Special Value outfit is a combination of fashion and function… a perfect example of "Real Clothes for Real Women." This time of year, when the weather is at its coldest, ladies love to feel 'toasty' and 'tasteful' all at the same time!
Comfortable knits and especially relaxed pants with a co-ordinating post-holiday, figure-flattering tunic seems like the perfect solution to spark up the mid-winter wardrobe blues.
Who are the Nina Leonard ladies?
We at Nina Leonard have always focused on creating affordable, quality clothes for real women living real lives. We want to address the needs and desires of the lady who always wants to look and feel like a lady. We want her to put on a Nina Leonard outfit and feel like a million dollars.
In fact I've been told by our viewers time and time again, that when they are wearing Nina Leonard they get more compliments that day… of course, that's music to my ears!

What inspires you?
For me, the design process is a part of my everyday life. I don't experience life in 'categories' that distinguish my personal persona from my professional one… it's all one and the same for me. Inspiration comes from every aspect of my life without limitations, and often when least expected, that's when it's most exciting for me.
We have always wanted our ladies to look and feel like they have spent a fortune – without having to and I believe when she's wearing Nina Leonard, we've accomplished that.
Keep them guessing!
