It’s hard to keep track of all the designer collaborations happening these days (hello, Jason Wu for Target and Marni for H&M) but when I heard about a handful of new QVC partnerships, I had to do a little investigating. It turns out that four of my favorite designers — Cynthia Vincent, Geren Ford, Karen Zambos, and Rachel Pally – are debuting collections that kick off live on QVC on February 10-11 at 10 PM EST. Celebrities like AnnaLynne McCord, Melissa Rycroft, and Kelly Bensimon have already been seen out and about in a few of my favorite pieces under $100. Check out the photos below of McCord modeling CV by Cynthia Vincent's Ruffle Front Maxi Dress in Multi ($99.50) and KZ by Karen Zambos' Printed Kimono Top in red ($62.50). So get ready to tune in if you want to be among the first to grab a piece of the action.
I visited Cynthia Vincent’s uber-chic studio near Bryant Park in NYC to chat with she-of-all-things-bohemian-luxe on what to expect from her new line and why she decided to team up with the retail powerhouse.
The Fashion Spot: Why did you decide to collaborate with QVC?
Cynthia Vincent: QVC is a great company and has an amazing customer base. It will allow me to bring my designs at a more affordable price to the QVC customer.
tFS: How does your collection for QVC differ from your designer one?
CV: My collection for QVC focuses on new interpretations of my top selling and all-time favorite pieces.
tFS: Do you have a favorite piece from the collection?
CV: One of my favorite pieces is the little black dress with embellishment and draping in the back. It is a timeless classic and a style that is both comfortable and sexy. The best thing about it is that it flatters all figures!
tFS: Who is the Cynthia Vincent girl? I know I consider myself to be one … let’s see if I match up.
CV: She’s stylish, possesses an easy elegance, and is modern with a dash of eclectic.
tFS: Sounds about right!
