This has been a hectic last few weeks. I showed my Dennis Basso Fall/Winter 2015 collection during Mercedes-Benz Fashion week at Lincoln Center to close to 1,200 people. Editors of all the major fashion magazines were in attendance including Vogue, Harpers Bazaar, Elle and Town & ... Continue Reading

My career in broadcasting has provided so many opportunities to me. While working in news I was chosen to fly with the Blue Angels in an F/A-18 fighter jet (one of the highlights of my career, one day I’ll have to share the story with you!). I covered the finale night of American I... Continue Reading

Hi everyone! I just love this time of year when the leaves are turning and there's a little nip in the air. Growing up, next to Christmas, Halloween was my favorite holiday. I'm not sure if it was getting dressed up, creating my own costume or if it was all that candy! OMG! Our local school wo... Continue Reading

As we step into September, fall is upon us. I always hate to see the summer go, but, somehow, fall clothes and autumn take over beautifully. It's always exciting to begin building and refreshing your fall wardrobe. This season, more than ever, is the very strong return of genuine suede. Nothing is m... Continue Reading

For the past few fashion seasons, designer Dennis Basso has invited the hosts to attend his runway fashion shows in NYC. For one reason or another, I was never able to attend. But this year, my schedule was free and I decided I was going for it! The idea of being in NYC for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Wee... Continue Reading

This is probably one of the most beautiful lakes in all of Europe, the deepest at 1200 feet and the prettiest in Italy. The shores are lined with magnificent villas some dating back to the 17th century. We were fortunate enough to be guests in one of these spectacular villas and it’s really like stepping back into another era. We traveled around the lake in a beautiful vintage boat captained by Ricardo who was so knowledgeable.
Every meal has been perfection! (Not so good for my diet, but if you’re going to cheat there is no better place.)
Being in the north if Ital... Continue Reading

Hi everyone! I’m busy this week preparing for my Spring/Summer 2014 runway show. The biggest challenge in producing a collection for Fashion Week is getting it done on time!

Hi everyone! Well, I can't believe it is that time of year again - The Holidays are here! It has been a wonderful fall on QVC and I want to thank so many of you for shopping with me. It’s always great as a designer to know that your designs are well received. This season was particularly exciting as I launched my first signature fragrance Dennis Basso Eau de Parfum that I have waited to do for so many years at I wanted it to be just perfect. A true labor of love. Your response has been overwhelming and the reviews just wonderful! I cannot thank you all enough for trying my eau ... Continue Reading

Those were the humble words that came out of my mouth as I sat around a board room table with 11 other women who had also made it to the final round of auditions to be a host at QVC. Each one of them listed movies, commercials, and TV shows they had been a part of back in LA, or NY. Nothing I could say could compete with their credits. I had been in news for 8 years and hosted a few small projects but none of that really mattered to me when I finally became a mom the year before. So when the man who would decide our fate at that table got around to me and asked th... Continue Reading

Fashion week is over and it is always a relief as so much work and time goes into the preparation. It began with a fabulous party and runway show that QVC hosted in New York City that was just amazing! It was filled with celebrities such as the Olsen Twins and Maria Menounos along with all of the fashion press and many of the Q's designers - A real NY evening. I was so excited to have many of my designs in the show. Usually, with my Luxury shows, I'm backstage, so it was a real treat to sit in the audience and watch from the front row!

Weddings have always been a fascination of mine. Even as a young boy, you can see from the little sketch one of my first "designs" was a wedding dress with a huge price tag. :) The idea of designing a wedding gown for the beautiful Kate Middleton was an exciting challenge. I believe it had to have many different design aspects to make it the perfect royal wedding gown, but, then again, every bride wants her gown to be the most perfect for her special day. For the future princes, I thought a very form fitted bodice of hand pleated duchess satin would be very elegant and ... Continue Reading
