Designer Louis Dell’Olio Steps Down As On-Air Rep For His QVC Line

October 6, 2019

Fashion designer Louis Dell’Olio, whose classic apparel has been a staple on QVC, will no longer doing the on-air presentations on his clothing line on the home shopping network.

Dell’Olio posted the news on Facebook last week, essentially saying it was getting more and more difficult for him to come to West Chester because of the loss of his wife, Jac, who often modeled his clothes on QVC.

The reaction from his fans was very understanding and positive, and Dell’Olio posted a second message on FB thanking everyone.

We wrote a post about Dell’Olio’s wife passing in late December 2017. It had a lot of meaning to us because our younger brother Jimmy had died around the same time that year, roughly a week after Jac passed away. The headline was something about heartbreak coming around the holidays.

In his FB posts Dell’Olio said it was quite a strain to make the six-plus hour round trip to QVC’s studio in all kinds of weather for nearly 20 years. He lamented having to stay at a local hotel alone, as it reminded him of his wife.

We found this line touching and amusing at the same time: “I will no longer have to eat at the Outback by myself, the only restaurant within miles of the hotel.”

We know Dell’Olio misses his wife and it must be sad to dine solo. And to be stuck eating at Outback? Oy!!!!!!

Dell’Olio wrote that Jennifer will be serving on the on-air spokesperson for his line now on QVC.

We wish him well and continued healing from his loss.

QVC Designer Louis Dell’Olio’s Wife Dies

December 27, 2017

Why do the holidays so often come with such heartbreak?

We lost our younger brother Jimmy on Dec. 20. His wake and funeral service are this week. And yesterday we learned that fashion designer Louis Dell’Olio, a QVC vendor, lost his beloved wife Jac earlier this month to cancer.

Jac had a career as a model, and she often accompanied Dell’Olio to QVC to model his fashions. This elegant lady was well known to the home shopping network’s customers.

Dell’Olio wrote a stirring blog about Jac’s death on his blog, which offers the sad details about her death and the joy of their life together. He can best tell that story.

He said they made a decision not to announce that she had passed until after Christmas.

There were hundreds of condolences from QVC hosts and customers on various Facebook pages regarding her death.

Dell’Olio posted this message on Jac’s FB page.

“To all of Jac’s dear friends, and I know she did consider you all her friends, it is with a broken heart that I must give you this very sad news. My Love, my Jac has passed away, and is now in the arms of her loving Mommy. I can only hope and pray that the time will come that she will be in my arms again. Thank you all for being so kind and caring to the love of my life … My Jac, with love, Louis Dell’Olio.”

Many condolences.
