Stacy London To Produce New Fashion Series on TLC

Stacy London of What Not to Wear is executive producing, along with BBC Worldwide Productions, an eight-part series that will follow husband and wife business owners Lisa and Jim Dolan, and their Brooklyn-based, plus-sized clothing store, Lee Lee’s Valise.

The show will cover the duo’s work with clients to transform wardrobes and attitudes, as well as the “inevitable” drama of running a business. The series, which will air on TLC, is set to premiere in May.

Check out London discussing the success of What Not to Wear:

Stacy London Reveals How to Get a Job in Fashion

“Beg, plead, cry, blood, sweat, tears.”

That’s what Stacy London, co-host of TLC’s What Not to Wear, says is necessary to break into the fashion business. So, if Anna Wintour asks you to hop on your Schwinn to fetch her some takeout, you better start pedaling.

“The more unpaid internships you’re willing to do, the more lugging clothes around for stylists that you’re willing to do as a young person, that really does lead to some sort of connection that you’re going to have with the people in charge when you’re ready to apply for a job,” London explained in our Media Beat interview. “Reach out to freelance stylists if you’re really interested in fashion. Say you’ll work for free. Say you’ll do their books. Say you’ll do anything to help them.”

London also gave tips for coping with unemployment and explained how getting fired led to the biggest moment in her career.

What Not to Wear‘s Stacy London Takes Your Fashion Questions

With over a decade of fashion and styling experience as an editor at Vogue, correspondent for Today, and co-host of TLC’s What Not to Wear, has Stacy London ever given out bad advice? Like saying those white pantyhose were a don’t, only to see someone like Gwen Stefani make it a why-didn’t-I-think-of-that do?

“No, I’m never wrong,” London said jokingly in our Media Beat interview. “No, not about other people’s style. But my style? Oh, boy, have I made mistakes.”

“Everybody makes fashion mistakes… and they’re not even really mistakes. There is no failure [in fashion],” she continued. “The fact is fashion and style really is about confidence. You can’t make a mistake if you’re confident enough in yourself to pull things off.”

London also answered some questions from our @mediabistroTV followers on jeans for real women, the white watch trend, and how to dress for “day to night fabulousness.”

Stacy London: ‘It’s not just about the clothes. It’s about the psychology behind them’

After nine seasons of jaw-dropping makeovers on TLC’s What Not to Wear, co-host  Stacy London attributes much of the show’s longevity to its “contributors,” or those bedazzled and medieval loving guests who agree to purge their wardrobes on national television.

“One of the things we say about the show is you get as much out of it as you put into it, and those women did,” London says of her favorites in our Media Beat interview. “They sort of let go of their old ideas about themselves, let go of their self-consciousness or their insecurities, and allowed the process to work. And that’s why the show, I think, succeeds, because it’s not just about the clothes. It’s about the psychology behind them.”

The former fashion editor also said she had no idea TV hosting would become her main gig. “I thought it would be 11 episodes and I would go back to styling, and that I’d be able to charge my clients more… And that was nine years ago — I haven’t had a client since.”
