@SilleeMee  I think what's sad is when a brand could have evolved with it's original namesake/owner so it could evolve with fashion styles,  But now it's stuck trying to be the same brand of decades ago.    

 

 

Denim & Co. can grow by introducing D&C Naturals, and D&C Beach, while still keeping it's steady/old items it's had for decades.  

 

 

I would not be surprised at all if Quacker Factory and Joan Rivers don't survive another 5 years.  They are trying to keep up with fashion styles little by little though.  QF has more "Quiet Quacker" designs, and they introduced a couple of shorter length (non-tunic) tops.  Joan Rivers is doing more contemporary jewelry (I love their newer hoop earrings), and less of the Starlight necklaces and the bee pins.  Even the JR boyfriend shirts are making way for more tailored denim and and a couple of newer styles.  But too little too late???

 

 

If they move too far too fast, shoppers scream that "Joan would never design that!!" or "Angel has run QF into the ground, poor Jeanne!!"

A favorite qvc top of mine is a plain black rayon/span by Halston which is perfectly comfortable and an excellent backdrop for jewelry.  

I watched "Halston" and it was gripping and terribly sad.

@SilleeMee My purchase of Halston fashions in QVC has nothing to do with the brand name.  I don't think the QVC clothes look anything like the glamorous Halston fashions I remember from my childhood.  I don't buy brands.  If I did, I probably wouldn't shop here.  QVC is not a great name.  I bought Halston based on a presentation by Cameron on how the garment was constructed.  The materials and designs were nice enough for work and appealed to me.  I looked up the measurements and the garments looked like they would fit me well.  They did.  I don't think I was disappointed once.  I bought many items.  I thought the quality was good, and the materials held up their good appearance throughout long work days.

I only began ordering a few Halston items as the brand was on the way out the door and I bought everything on sale.

 

I bought either 3 or 4 knit t-shirt type tops and I love them all and wear them constantly.  I wish I could get more.
