West Chester's fashion giant QVC is getting geared up for their New York Fashion Week Show that will air Friday and Saturday at 10 p.m.

And while this name might not mean much to non-New York Fashion week attenders, Fern Mallis, president of IMG Fashion, the conglomerate behind New York Fashion Week, is debuting a line of costume jewelry. (I always knew that sitting in the front row of every show wasn't enough for Fern - Congrats, Ms. Mallis)

Mallis' debut on QVC is big as it's proof the Fashion week elite are finally admitting they must connect with every day fashionistas as well as the importance of Fashion week being about now more than the future.  With QVC as her platform, Mallis is likely to become a household name like makeup maven Mally Roncal. That kind of publicity is priceless for Mallis and Fashion Week.

In addition to Mallis' jewelry collection, Friday night's QVC show will include buy now spring 2012 fashions from Ehrlich, Mizrahi, Mallis and friend to the curvy fashionista, Marc Bouwer. LA Based designer Cynthia Vincent will also debut a line of contemporary fashions.

On Saturday accessories from Brazilian handbag model Camila Alves will be featured  along with looks from contemporary designers Dennis Basso and Mark Zunino.

QVC has managed to turn itself into the go-to retail outlet for designers who want a turn over a quick million and becdome a household name. Items sell out on QVC in a matter of seconds and viewers get to enjoy the runway from the comfort of their armchairs.

About this blog

I’m a Libra so I’m all about pretty things. We of the scales sign know what we like, and our standards are high.

So I can’t help but love fashion – one day I will get that Diane von Furstenberg wrap and those Christian Louboutin shoes.

And fragrances? My favorite right now is Chanel Mademoiselle. As for makeup, can we say MAC?

So let’s thank the Greek goddess of beauty, Aphrodite, that a true fashionista can find everything she needs right here in Philly.

I’ve covered fashion here for six years, and I have traveled to New York, Los Angeles and Paris to write about local and national designers. Let me tell you, there is no place where people wear midnight Eagles green or Phillies red with such wild abandon as they do on the west side of the Ben Franklin Bridge.

Sound familiar? This blog is for you.
