As if to remind us that this seemingly endless summer will have to come to a close sometime, I am listening to the driving rain delivered by the fury of ex-hurricane Bertha battering our conservatory roof as I write this.
A timely reminder, perhaps, as we have come to the moment when we look ahead to the coming season on QVC and launch our autumn fashion collections!
It means that my Morning Style show makes a return – my first show after the summer break will be on your screen at 10am this Wednesday, 13th August. We also have our two hour Autumn Catwalk show on Thursday at 10pm, with Julia Roberts and Lesley Ebbetts, which kicks off our a 50 Hours of Fashion event lined up for all day Friday and Saturday.
On Wednesday the theme of our show will be a popular one – how to create a capsule wardrobe. What this really means is how to choose clothes that are versatile enough to work hard for you, and can be put together with other garments to create a number of different outfits and looks
Our stylist Charlotte always excels herself with this and I usually end up ordering half the show myself! It might be that you spot just one piece that will fit into your existing wardrobe, or perhaps just get a few ideas about how to style something you already own. It doesn’t matter whether you’re buying or not, hopefully you will feel inspired by what you see. As I often say, Morning Style is all about helping you to find your way around the fashion we have at QVC and make it work for you. I do hope you can join us.
If you do enjoy fashion you might like to come to one of the most exciting events in the QVC calendar – our Fashion & Jewellery Show. It’s being held at Vinopolis, which is near Borough Market, London Bridge and the Shard skyscraper in central London on 11th and 12th September, and we have ten pairs of tickets to give away for the 11:30am catwalk show on the Friday 12th.
If you want to enter, all you have to do is email firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line ‘Kathy Tayler Fashion & Jewellery Show’, and be sure to include your name, postal address and contact telephone number. But hurry! Competition entry closes at midnight on Thursday night.
[Updated 19/08/2014 – Please note that entry to this competition has now closed.]
We will pick ten names out of a hat who will be invited to come along with a friend to watch some of our stunning models in a brilliant live catwalk show that will highlight some of the best fashion we will be bringing you over the coming months. I was there last year and felt as though I was watching something from London Fashion Week!
It’s all set to music, the models are in their element and are SO good in the choreographed routines they perform for us. Sadly we can’t help with transport costs, but there will be refreshments provided – if you would like to have a chance to watch the show and meet some of the QVC models and behind the scenes people, let me know!
Will went along last year and filmed a little piece for the 2013 Autumn/Winter collections, so watch the video below to get a taste of what to expect at this year’s event.
