His styles seemed to be caught some where between the 1930's and 1960.  Ruffles and fussy don't work for me any more.  Bye George (stuck on himself)


His styles are very similar to SG, and the fabrication is similar as well.   Both brands are for the older market, like coldwater creek.

Re: Where is GEORGE SIMONTON?

Always love his pieces with the Old Hollywood glamour look.  I remember him indicating he would have a jewelry line on QVC in the near future.  Hope so as the pieces shown on his models were to die for.

How many of you sent your letters to QVC? We need to let them know we want George and his designs back on QVC. If you have not sent them yet please send them to, Mr. Mike George, QVC President, QVC Inc. Corporate, 1200 Wilson Drive-Studio Park, West Chester, PA 19380 I can't afford to buy my clothes from Macy's. They do get the letters and they do have to sign for them if you send registered mail. If you can't afford to send a registered letter send regular mail. taking a count on who has already sent mail and if you heard from them yet.

George Simonton used to have the most beautiful jackets at QVC and Barrie Pace.  Something happened to George's jackets at QVC, about the same time something happened to the beautiful and luxurious fabrics brought to us by LDO.  Was that something that happened about the time the wonder boy appeared at QVC?  Ahhhh....Shawnie's Sue buddy.

Re: Where is GEORGE SIMONTON?

why such nasty posts about George?  He is a class act and he is a gentleman and "true designer" unlike a few others.  And why reference his age?  There are other designers on the Q in the same ago category, i.e., Bob Mackie and Louis del'Ollio .  I for one will put in my complaint if George is done with the Q.

Why do YOU make nasty comments about other designers but expect the ones YOU like to be treated with respect?

Re: Where is GEORGE SIMONTON?

If all of the ladies who say they loved George and his fashions and want him back actually BOUGHT the items he sold.....he'd still be here at QVC.  His items were not much different than Linea or SG.  The difference being that those designers sell and it's obvious that Mr. Simonton did not.  Or didn't sell well enough.  QVC isn't a club, it's a retailer.  We support our favorite designers and brands by our purchases.
