Rachel shares her excitement with the new team and Rodger's Tom Ford pajamas.
This season I'm so excited to introduce everyone to my amazing new team members!
First, you will get to meet Mandana Dayani, the vice president of my company –- we kind of like to think of her as chief wrangler or execu-b---h! She is seriously incredible, I like to joke she is both my left and my right hand; besides acting as general counsel she also oversees all of our business deals, licenses, and the entire Rachel Zoe collection.
Then there is Jeremiah Brent. Aside from being totally dreamy. he has a great eye for fashion and has come on to help us with styling. He's like the total package. He is a brilliant interior decorator, so easy going, eager, and seriously hilarious -– love him.
This season you will also get to meet Eric Sartori, my handsome, chic, and insanely talented design director -- did I mention he is French? I mean doesn't get any better. He is genius, it is such an honor to work with him, he totally gets me -- we are always in sync.
Then there is my beautiful personal assistant Kendall -- a total angel. She keeps me in check. She's like my lifeline!
And of course this season will include both hilarious and touching moments with those that have been with me from the very beginning, like my husband Rodger Berman, the love of my life and president of my company; Marisa Runyon, the hardworking and fiercely loyal, now, Brand Director of my QVC line Luxe Rachel Zoe; and finally, my handsome and hilarious best friend Joey Maalouf -- the wildly talented hair and makeup artist.
OK, enough about them! In the first episode you will get a glimpse at behind the scenes of my first family photo shoot – for Elle magazine – so mah-jor. I loved every minute, I was feeling super pregnant wearing Givenchy couture and Rodger rocked some insane Tom Ford pajamas.
Also, this season you will get an inside look at the launch of my first collection! It's the most exciting and important thing I have done at this point in my career. You will get to see behind the scenes from the very beginning -- the design process, inspiration, and finally my first fashion show! The clothes are seriously amazing. I am so honored and humbled to be able to share this with everyone, and I hope you all love it as much as I do! Be sure to check out next week's episode for even more in depth behind the scenes from my fashion show -- way fun!
