…life as a stylist always lurking in the shadows!
Happy September out there! In celebration of this month’s birthstone sapphire, I teamed up with QVC’s very own Jewellery Insider a.k.a. Presenter Kathryn Goldsmith along with our fantastic jewellery buying team to create some beautiful imagery featuring some truly stunning pieces from our Diamonique range.
Some of you may have already been following Kathryn’s jewellery posts over the past few months but in case you haven’t, she’s been made the new official jewellery expert among the presenters. With a background in and passion for gemstones, she knows a thing or two about bling!
Each month Kathryn will do a series of posts, IGTVs and Facebook Lives sharing a wealth of jewellery knowledge as well as showing you her favourite new pieces coming to QVC. On the fourth Friday each month, we team up with our InsiderStyle post on Instagram which emphasises more on fashion and how jewellery instantly adds personality to an outfit as well as bringing it life.
This month was extra special as we got to do a proper photo shoot – we usually run around the QVC studios trying to find a free set, so this was a real treat! I of course jumped at the opportunity and started working on a mood board to come up with a concept and plan out a colour scheme that would work with the sapphire theme. This process gets me in a creative flow and helps me envision the final outcome of the imagery as well as give direction to our lovely photographer Laura who also pitched in with her ideas and how we could bring it all to life using the props and sets available to us.
We of course needed an outfit for Kathryn to go with the fabulous blue and pink tones of the jewellery pieces so I scanned the QVC website and found the perfect pale blue Finery dress and royal blue Helene Berman coat. Luckily Kathryn loved the whole look and concept!
We’re thrilled to bits with how the images came out and hope this edit leaves you feeling inspired to wear some of the fabulous jewellery pieces QVC has to offer.
