If you are a follower of fashion, I hope you were able to join us for at least part of the 48 hours we spent last week bringing you the first of our Autumn fashion. If you missed the event, there’s plenty still on our website (some available in Easy Pay instalments) and lots to read about with special fashion-focused blogs.
Our fantastic team of fashion buyers have given you some ideas on their favourite ways to cover up on those days when summer is turning into autumn and you need an extra layer but don’t want to say goodbye to summer looks too quickly. MarlaWynne, one of our (my!) favourite designers who was responsible for our sell-out Today’s Special Value on Fashion Day last week, answers questions about her life, love of fashion and other totally unrelated subjects on our community pages too. And don’t miss our Style List – every month the QVC fashion and accessories teams bring exciting new trends and edits to our Style List editorial pages – it’s your online inspiration destination.
Last week saw our special two day event but for the whole month of August we are celebrating our first ever fashion month. So we have saved some extra special moments until later in the month and there’s one coming up in Julia Roberts’ Fashion on Friday show this week at 5pm.
Julia will be launching a brand new range called Label Lab, a name you may have seen on the highstreet.
It’s a name I’ve invested in several times from my local department store so I’m really excited that I can now buy it at QVC. With a slightly edgy, urban look, Label Lab is a softer, more refined (and less expensive!) version of Allsaints, another range I love but which is a bit pricey for me and often not quite big enough!
Soft colours, unique prints and fabulous fabrics combine with a touch of rock’n’roll and vintage inspiration to create a versatile selection of clothes that can be combined for complete outfits or used as individual pieces to add to what you already have in your wardrobe. I love the way the understated glamour of the range doesn’t try too hard – the clothes are easy to wear. I’ve managed to get my hands on some of what will feature in Friday’s show to give you a sneaky preview – thanks to Jackie for taking the photos for me.
Outfit one: Label Lab Chiffon Jersey Mix Top
Outfit 2: Label Lab Tie Dye Woven T-Shirt
Outfit 3: Label Lab Cross Over Dip Hem Blouse
Outfit 4: Label Lab Feather Print Jersey Top
She was pleased to see the clothes before they come to air and is planning to order the drapey berry top and probably the longline black top too. You can check it out and order your favourites on our website right now by clicking on the links above, but please don’t buy it all before Friday – Julia won’t be happy with me if there’s nothing left for her show!
And keep watching – there will be plenty more fashion treats before the end of the month!
Best wishes, and take care
