Julien Macdonald OBE is gracing our screens tonight with a rather glamorous TSV. A humble Welsh fashion designer born in Merthyr Tydfil, Julien was taught to knit by his mother which sparked his interest in design. He then went on to study textiles at the Faculty of Arts and Architecture, Brighton before becoming a student at the Royal college of Art, where he gained a Master’s degree. Not long after graduating, Julien was recruited by Karl Lagerfield to work for Chanel and in 2001 he was named British fashion designer of the year.
In 2006, Julien was awarded an OBE by the Queen for his services to the fashion industry and many of you may remember him for his flamboyant appearance On Strictly Come Dancing in 2013 or for his judging role on Britain’s Next Top Model.
Julien is not only super talented but such a lovely, warm and funny guy – we hit it off immediately when we met for his QVC launch fashion runway show! Julien has brought a signature homeware range to QVC which has been a huge success, and on Wednesday we are bringing you a glamorous set of two mirrored candle holders in a choice of silver, black or rose gold (you can catch it early here!). Julien wanted to interpret the candelabra as a tealight/candle holder, and it can be used with three tealights or three candles.
See you at midnight tonight with Julien!
Love and Sparkle,
