Why do the "fashion" shows have models?

 

Why do the "hosts" have to change clothes during a show as if they were the model?

Customers want to SEE what they are buying...

@Jo1313 I agree. Hosts are there to inform, not model. A host should be wearing clothing presented during their program. No changing. It distracts them from giving us important information.

To me the hosts serving as "models" is unnecessary they should be giving details on the clothing AND LET THE MODELS DO THE MODELING!!!! To me it looks like a cover up for not doing their homework and are

unprepared to provide garment details....

It looks to me that this is a cost savings for QVC.  I remember the days when there were up to 4 models; thinking of Louis Dell'Olio, for example.  When a host doubles her work as a model as well, less for QVC to pay for.

Gee, how distracting!! 

Some people can never be satisfied. If you're that picky go shop in a store.

I appreciate the hosts modeling the clothes. Many times the models are much taller than I am so I appreciate the more petite hosts wearing the offerings. Also, skin tones may make the clothing look different & the hosts might style the item in a different way.

I order on line when I see something I like & I look at the descriptions. So I don’t need the host giving me further information.

I’m not distracted by changing of the clothing. The hosts are told to do this, most likely, and customers are not their managers.

Many times, especially with certain hosts, the models are completely ignored.  I often wonder if the models resent that.  Maybe not, as long as they get paid for the appearance.  Then there are people in the background who decide on the pairing of clothing items for the models to wear on-air.  They take care with their work, have the models dress in the choices made, the model appears on-air, then is ignored by the host.  The host is way too busy being cute and entertaining to acknowledge the model.

IMO they should focus more on the models and less on the hosts blabbing about their private lives! I would like to know details about the fabric, sizing, and especially what size is the host and models are wearing. I don't care who's taking a vacation, or who's daughters have 10 of the item!! QVC is focusing on the wrong aspect of sales.
