If you haven't heard already, celebrity stylist, Rachel Zoe (known as a less-flattering nickname to Perez Hilton readers) will be launching her own fashion line on the Q soon.
I thought I was going to do a regular old post announcing the news, when I came across a blog written by Lilliana Vazquez, the vendor rep for Maxx New York handbags on QVC. Apparently she's a total fangirl of Rachel's ... unfortunately, in the process of promoting her fashion idol, she manages to completely dismiss every other fashion accessory designer currently on the Q and make fun of QVC's entire customer base. Classy.
Here's a snippet (emphasis mine):
So as many of you might (or might not) know, my “day job” is going on QVC to represent Maxx New York handbags…and although I really enjoy what I do, I hate the fact that besides our collection, there’s nothing at QVC that I would actually wear…UNTIL NOW…according to FabSugar, Rachel Zoe will be bringing all her gaudy, gold goodness in the form of an accessories line to the Q in October!!!
I hope to that the buyers let her do her “thang” and don’t make her tone it down for their audience. Based on past experiences, QVC has a lot of say in the design of each item so I hope they let Zoe’s genius take the reins on this one. I’m sure they’re goal is to attract a younger, more fashion-forward audience with her and they won’t be successful if they tailor the line to appeal to retiree’s in the mid-west.
Wow! Talk about biting the hand that feeds you. Does she even know about all the designers at QVC? I realize that you have to push through racks of bedazzled ducks to get to the trendy section, but it's there.
Just in her handbag category alone, there's B. Makowsky, Dooney & Bourke, Kathy Van Zeeland, Tignanello, Vera Bradley ... the list goes on and on (as one host is apt to say) ... are they all beneath her? If I like them does that make me an old, fashion-backward, mid-western retiree?
