Bank Holiday Style & New Collections!

Fashion, Gen's Blog

It htunicas been a very exciting build up to one of our busiest FRIDAY Fashion shows of the
year. Hurray!! It’s our bank holiday show and as always it’s an amazing line up. I have been presenting fashion on Ideal world for five years, and I have to say this August bank holiday is one of the best. As a Fashion journalist and stylist the one question I get asked a lot is what to buy for the transitional season. I always advise buying outfits that you can layer and fabrics that are soft, flattering and comfortable. That is exactly what our team have put together for this week’s Friday Fashion. There is something for everyone, every style and every shape. Continue reading

Presenters’ Holiday Memories

Gen's Blog, News, Presenter Blogs, Shaun's One To Watch

What is it about being away on holiday that brings out our most embarrassing, vulnerable and silly selves? Perhaps we unknowingly leave all of our dignity at the airport, or forget to pack our common sense. It’s as if the moment we slap on some sunscreen (Shaun we are looking at you…) or step foot on foreign land all logic flies out the door (Joanne and company you know who you are). Whatever the reason, a holiday is the perfect opportunity to leave your inhibitions at home and get involved (unwittingly or not) in some good old mishaps, misdemeanours and fashion faux pas (cough, cough Genevieve). Our beloved presenters share with us their good, embarrassing, and downright hilarious holiday moments. Enjoy, and try not to cringe too hard…

Are You A Friday Fashionista?

Fashion, Gen's Blog, Presenter Blogs

Hello Friday Fashionistas,


I have just been reminded that the clocks go back this week. It’s time to wrap up and keep cosy.

We have been busy here at Ideal World, both on air and behind the scenes, it’s a real buzz of activity everywhere you go. Everyone is very excited about the up-coming events.

Myself and Peter Simon will be celebrating all things Spy on Sunday night and Mike and I are going fancy dress for Halloween.

Also very exciting is our show for this week’s Friday fashion. We have been preparing since Wednesday and there is an almost continual hub of ladies admiring our line up backstage.

I have great news!!! The Zip detail jacket is back in stock for the third time after two big sellouts. We have the plum back as well the elegant black.

Also, on Friday fashion this week we have brand new wraps, they have stunning designs and with the added tailoring they stay put and have a lovely drape. The necklines tie at the front with a faux fur trim to add some evening glamour. My favourite is the navy with the royal blue collar.

Friday Fashion eveningWe have a wonderful selection from the Nicole range; starting with the Chiffon Batwing top, which will look great with the Nygard slims and a statement necklace. Plus, we will be featuring the long Ponte jacket – a perfect look with trousers or even with your favourite jeggings.

I have to tell you that the Friday Fashion special is one of our best yet. I won’t spoil the surprise but I bet it sells out in the first hour.

And, last but not least, we will be having a new section on Friday Fashion coming soon.

I would love you to join me this Friday at 3pm.


Lots of love and hugs
