Furrier Dennis Basso, Set To Marry His Partner, Joins The Home Collection Bandwagon For QVC

Must every fashion designer expand their “brand,” one our our most hated words, to create home collections?

Apparently, the ones one home shopping networks do.

We peeked at QVC afte midnight to check out the Today’s Special Value, and saw it was a $50 faux fur throw from Dennis Basso (a New Jersey boy). Basso has a new home line for QVC, which includes faux fur rugs, bedding, pillows and candles.

Isaac Mizrahi, of course, is doing not only apparel and accessories for QVC but also a home line.

And jewelry wizard Robert Lee Morris did a home line for QVC, mostly dishes, that didn’t seem to get much traction.

Basso has a lot going on. The New York Post’s Page Six reported on Halloween that Basso was going to be marrying his partner of 20 years, Michale Cominotto, at the swank Pierre in Manhattan next month.

There was a bridal wedding shower for the couple recently at Le Cirque.

According to the Post, Basso’s nuptials will be the first same-sex marriage in the 81-year history of the Pierre.

Congrats Dennis.

    I don’t care one way or the other whether Basso marries his partner or not. I’m tired of hearing about same sex marriage a billion times a year from the media & Hollywood constantly. Gays don’t deserve any special rights because of their sexual preference as well as Muslims for their religion. Christians have as much rights as any other group in this country to be political & be for or against what they want to without being scorned by intellectually lazy liberals.

    My favorite was the 20 dollar fur covered wine gift bag set. Really think about that for a minute and you’ll begin to see the many layers of how ridiculous that really is.

    Wayne, I don’t think gay people who wish to be married are asking for “special rights”. All they’re asking for the same exact basic rights as heterosexuals – nothing more, nothing less.

      I saw the faux fur wine bottle gift bags. Bizarre. And then Dennis said we could re-use them as shoe bags. Uh, okay.

      As one commenter said: “Gays are the only ones who want to get married these days.”

    Hi Dennis,

    Congrat on your wedding. I just love your great personality and your coats. Can you make size 4 X’s. I want a fur vest so bad, a black or sable mink vest and I want one to about 33 inches long. I looked on QVC and nothing. I am able to wear your coats and jackets with a bust measurement of around 61. I want a fur vest so bad and I want to buy them from you.
