Buyers advice?! I would say that's putting it gently from what I hear from some of the vendors. The buyers seem to be an essential part of the design team really! I would love to see a designer come in with carte blanche on what they can design.

 

Lisa Rinna recently shared  that it was seven years before she was permitted  to bring in a leopard print?! 


really. 

wonder if the buyers ever get out in the real world

 


I find that hard to believe being that every other line has leopard print items.  Not to mention, I also don't believe a word that comes out of LR's mouth.

Seems a silly thing to lie about don't you think?? And when the host asked why she thought that was or what was their reasoning she said she assumed it was because others were already doing it.

LR is not the only one who's commented on restrictions and suggestions; she's just a recent one that comes to mind..

A lot of stuff LR does don't make much sense.  

 

Sorry.  Don't like the woman and wouldn't put it past her to lie about anything. LOL

 

I do know they have a lot of restrictions and not just at QVC.  I know someone who used to design for one of HSN's in-house brands.  She was pretty much told what to design.

Re: Looks Like Dennis Basso Has Teamed Up With Quacker Factory!

I do think that buyers have a huge influence on what the vendors put out because so many designers have similar garments on the Q.  Here is a recent example that comes to mind which I posted in the LOGO forum, but it's one of many, many examples:

 

D&C new jacket:

LOGO sleeveless blouse (called a tank) from last season:

Many of the Q's fashion lines look similar. Quacker Factory now has Denim & Co.'s new antique rose in their color lineup.

@Squirrel Lover  Good point  And other lines now have names of colors the same as unusual LOGO colors too.  If a line does well, the styles definitely spread to other QVC lines.  It's all about making a profit.

Re: Looks Like Dennis Basso Has Teamed Up With Quacker Factory!

The anorak seems to have the design attached as appliques, rather than embroidered.  If so, they could probably be removed.  

 

Without those insects, it's kind of cute.

Except, for whatever reason, they just call it "antique rose" in QF (as opposed to "new antique rose" in D&Co). I guess they want people to be able to mix and match the various lines.
