Is Iman coming back? I see everything but two of her items are on clearance. I really hope they are only clearing out the inventory to make room for new items with a new distributor. I would hate to see her line go. She’s the only one that really designs to true curvy girls (thin waist and larger thighs/hips). The others are so large in the waist my pants fall down without a tight belt or they are all over sized moo-moo tops that don’t hug a woman’s curves. I want to celebrate and show them, not hide them.
I to love Iman’s Fashion Line and hope she doesn’t leave HSN. However, I recently ordered her Lamb Motto Jacket in blush and it took almost 3 weeks to receive and when I received it it was wrinkled, no Iman tag and the hardware was not protected with tissue paper and the box was mangled. I called customer service and they said they would send another one out without recharging me, well they did, and that jacket was wrinkled, without an Iman tag and hardware not protected. I was furious and called customer service again. They would not send me another jacket until I allowed them to charge my account again as a new purchase. I wonder if Iman knows how her clothes are being handled and sent out. When I buy an item from HSN, I am buying a brand new, unused item and not something that has been returned before or recycled. Has any one experienced this? HSN Customer Service obviously doesn’t want to take responsibility for items being shipped and their quality assurance. Fashion designers should be concerned about how their products are being handled and the customer satisfaction because HSN ultimately represents them. I hope that this product process dysfunction is not a sign that Iman is gone and HSN is trying to get rid of her merchandise no matter the condition of the product.
I stocked up eith the Iman line. So easy to pick an outfit- great for travel and stylish. I am hoping for a spring/summer line-up. Cheers!!
I hope she is not leaving.
HSN has really lost a lot of it’s appeal to me since it’s owned by the same company as QVC.
There used to be pages to chose from in The Rewards Store, now barely anything good on the one page it has. (Not that I ever won! LOL)
The free shipping is less (the reason I hardly ever buy from QVC) and the clearance prices aren’t as good as they used to be (another reason I rarely buy from QVC)
I would save a lot of money though, if HSN keeps morphing into QVC.
Most of my wardrobe is from Iman. I stopped shopping HSN for so many reasons, however I would shop again if Iman were back . She has such extraordinary style and beauty. Everything else looks cheap in comparison, and yet over priced. I have shopped HSN since its beginning and it has changed dramatically and unfortunately not for the better. I’m sure I am not the only one who feels this way. Hope Iman will come back but wouldn’t blame her if she didn’t.
I agree with both of you. She’s more than just another designer. Iman has a true appreciation for her customers and takes the time to listen to those who love her work. I’m a bit ashamed to say that now my entire closet contains the “Iman” label, but on the flipside, people have said I dress and appear more polished. She’s been so much of an inspiration that I’ve dropped two sizes. I was already for the spring line to update with a smaller size. Guess in the mean time I’ll have to have them tailored rather than donated.
Why should you be “ashamed” that most everything in your closet is Iman? You should be proud that you don’t dress like everyone else and apparently others have taken notice of your style too! And as if that is not enough, you say she has inspired you to lose 2 sizes! Wow! Kudos to you! Way to go girl! 😀
Try to find your faves on clearance and just keep hoping she comes back! I am going to try to stock up on my faves but I pray she is coming back. After every visit, I go into Iman withdrawals. Lol. I sure hope she is coming back!
@kittengirl, thanks for the kuddos! I’m sure she’ll be back after a long break and the decoupling from her current distribution center is over. I see Ming Tsai has returned after almost all of his offerings were on clearance. He’s back now sometime in March with a TS. I’m sure she’ll be back after her tour around the world. Poor thing was probably worn out, IT seemed like she was on once a month. Good for us but it had to take a toll on her.
I used have a cup of coffee around 7pm to wake me up the night she was on so I could sit up and shop with a glass of wine. LOL! My boyfriend thought I was crazy until I started modeling the clothes for him when they came in. 🙂
The kudos are well deserved! 😀 That’s hard to do! I am trying to lose some and it is hard, those lbs. are stubborn! I am going to remain hopeful and optimistic that iman will be back after a much needed break and after she gets things set up with a new distributor. I am going to have to be patient but it’s hard to be patient when you are waiting for Iman! Lol! I just can’t believe she would leave without saying something to her girls because she is so appreciative and gracious to everyone she speaks to that calls in during her shows.
Thanks for the heads up on Chef Ming! I have two of his woks and use them all the time! I have given them as gifts too and they have been most appreciated!
Your boyfriend sounds like a wise man! Lol! I watch every show she has, even record some of them. I get teased by hubby and daughter but they always compliment me when I’m wearing my Iman! 😀 We can’t give up hope! She will be back!
I feel as you do, I love Iman’s line. I don’t know if she is leaving permanently but the other night Helen said Iman’s clothes were on clearance because she “didn’t know when or if” Iman would be coming back. (Helen is the one that also gave the heads up early about Vince Camuto line when he left.) If Iman leaves I will be so sad. I love Iman and I have so many of her things. I have been buying her line since she first came to HSN and I love everything I have from her! Hopefully, if we don’t see her for awhile it’s just because she is on a world trip right now and maybe she is lining up a new distributor since her old one is now gone. It takes time for these things to be put into place. She has got to come back! She is their most popular vendor so it would be foolish for the people at the top to get rid of her. If she is just tired and wants a change, then I will sadly have to accept her decision and wish her nothing but the best. I am hoping she is just taking a break. I don’t just love Iman for her line, but for the person she is and I always enjoy her visits.
I agree though I fear that with everyone jumping HSN’s ship, I have a feeling that Iman is too. Maybe she’ll just go to another network, or even a department store (which wouldn’t be bad; at least I’d be able to try on her clothes before buying and not have to pay shipping). She has fantastic clothes; I’ve completely updated my wardrobe and boosted my confidence thanks to her.
I will be so disappointed and probably done with HSN if she leaves 🙁
