Kim Mendelson has been showcasing fashion on QVC UK for a fantastic 15 years and in this time has built up a very loyal following.
Her range includes everything from dresses to skirts, tops, capris and more. In gorgeous fabrics and featuring beautiful colours and prints, her designs are cut beautifully to flatter your shape and complement any occasion.
We asked Kim how she feels after 15 years at QVC…
'As little girl I felt drawn to the UK, especially with the Queen being one of my idols. Her regal yet real persona helped inspire how I wanted to be as a designer and business woman.
Being a part of the QVC family for the last 15 years has given me the opportunity to see a country that I love, spend time with people I admire and expand my Kim & Co. family to include YOU!
I am inspired by what has passed and excited for what is yet to come! Thank you for making the last 15 years memorable ones!'

Dennis' top tips for staying stylish this winter?
'The most important thing for staying stylish is having a couple of great Dennis Basso winter coats! Then you can mix and match various scarves, gloves and hats. By changing accessories, it helps to bring in some bright colour and gives you a fresh new look every time you go out the door.'

'I try to make modern clothes that are fashionable and modern at the same time. Colour and embellishment are important for us in giving these classic, easy-to-wear shapes a sense of polish and well put-together fashion.
Modern fashion today is all about comfort and easy care. Being well-dressed no longer means being uncomfortable … nowadays it's all about comfort.'
