Audrey Graver ~ does anyone know the background on this?

Started 1380402835.99 in Fashion Talk | Last reply 1384861636.767 by lellen

Susan Graver always gives credit to her MIL as a co-designer. Does anyone know how this business relationship began? Was Audrey Graver a designer in her own right before Susan came along?

I'm just curious. I don't think Susan ever explained it.

Housecat, here's a link to a recent QVC blog from Susan. I haven't watched it yet but will be and maybe this will explain how Audrey got involved.

Thank you, Bird. I'm going to watch it now. I'm always interested in how people got their careers going.

I never looked at that blog page before. Very cute. Susan is really a strikingly pretty lady. I don't think that shows as much on t.v.

It looks like she started the company with her MIL. It could be that MIL had the money to help start up, I'm just assuming, but Susan certainly took it to where it is today.

Good for her! I love a success story.

The video goes on an on (lol).

I found another blog that states Audrey and Susan got together to create the line. It seems to me like they got into it when QVC came on the scene. Then again, what do I know.

What do you think of the fleece jacket. I like the houndstooth or blue

I believe Audrey's line for spring is called "Pop A Collar."

It's pretty. I have a b/w houndstooth jacket and I love it. It's JR.

I was wearing it at school last week. I always greet my students at the door and one boy... a twelve year old boy, walked past me and said, "You're rockin' that houndstooth, Mrs. R!" {#emotions_dlg.wub}

Yes, I made my first SG fashion purchase in the ivory houndstooth. I'm a natural redhead and hope the pattern won't clash with my carrot top.

I believe her line for all seasons is "Hideous Polyester Prints" and "Fleece Jackets That Look Like a Bathrobe".

He's got to be a Project Runway fan.

I'll bet that Susan brought her on board to be a good DIL- Audrey needs to lay off the plastic surgery-My gracious!

what a nasty comment for luvmycats to say. After all Audrey is not a young lady anymore! I say more power to her and Susan!!!

Audrey helped to create a monster....that's all the background I need to know.

I really like much of what SG and her MIL design, Susan is a lucky woman to have a MIL who thinks so much of her and her talent. I believe it took Susan a tremendous amount of time and work to get where she is today.

{#emotions_dlg.lol} Now that's funny to me. I guess because the very few times I've watched SG she was saying "pop a collar".

What you put into the lives of others comes back into your own.

My fleece coat looks nothing like a bathrobe.

I really like what I have ordered from Susan Graver. I shop in a lot of places and polyester/rayon/nylon is everywhere! High end designer fashions as well.

A monster? Hyper at times and quite the talker...but a monster? Really?
