I thought the twinset on offer was quite pretty, and I've seen some trousers and tops on IW that I've liked and might well have bought, had they not been in polyester. But I plump for natural fabrics every time as I don't get on with polyester things very well next to the skin, and don't feel comfortable in them.

They're just largely very cheap, mass produced, generic, predominantly Polyester clothing that you could see on sale in any discount store or market stall and there's nothing wrong with that, nothing whatsoever.
It's the preposterous way that this clothing is sold that's the problem, to say the sales pitches are disingenuous is being kind.
However, for balance, the wretched QVC sell a line of clothing called 'Yong Kim'. From what I've read in the Q forum it's not immediately clear who or what 'Yong Kim' is although it appears it could be a brand that is at least sold by other retailers so I'm guessing it might be kind of a 'proper' brand.
However, for some inexplicable reason, it's fronted by Tacky Tarrant's ex wife, which is perhaps akin to Peter Vacuum Vol Au Vent shilling 'Art'.
But goodness me, the prices are genuinely eye watering. They are often manufactured from a material called 'Modal' which is semi synthetic but they also regularly sell 95% Polyester dresses for well over £150, and sometimes nearer £200.
Now, don't get me wrong, the designs (to my eye at least) are like night and day from Ideal World's production line 'lines' but £200?

"Yong Kim" is supposed to be a real designer, a very shy woman (who Baglady Tarrant has supposedly dined with) and not-at-all a Q brand name. As pointed out by Turandot, similar clothing (well, exactly the same) is sold elsewhere, but under different labels.
I detect a whiff of Rosa Benini and Tommy & Kate about the secretive Yong Kim; what real designer DOESN'T like speaking publicly about their creativity, artistic vision etc. to make sure the cash keeps rolling in and to tell everyone about how big a genius they are?

So De Knees is shilling a Styled By Top which in fairness is as cheap as chips. She says : -
'When you find something amazing, an at an incredible price, it would be wrong to just order once, or twice. I want to encourage you to go for non safe colours and to double up on the colours you love best'
Nothing wrong with this, after all she's a sales person. But then she dropped this into the equation : -
'This is called I T Y Fabric. Now that means it's an interlocking yarn so what you get is a super smooth fabric'
That must just be sales spiel as, according to the website, it's actually 95% PolyesterPost Thanks / Like - 0 Thanks, 1 LikesPrice Plunge liked this post
