Sandie Savelli
The Shopping Channel's resident fashion specialist, Sandie Savelli, is the epitome of what style and fashion can and should be. Whether she is on air, or enroute to visit with her children and grandchildren, Sandie always wears clothing that makes her look and feel great. When shopping for clothes, Sandie follows the advice she learned at a very early age from her mother, "Wear items that are flattering to you and not just what is trendy at the moment. Good advice for anyone, and for any age.
Born and raised in Hamilton, Ontario, Sandie got her start in the fashion business at the young age of 12 when a neighbour's mother taught her the fine art of sewing. With a natural flair for design and an innate understanding of fabric and how to use it, Sandie put her talents to work designing and sewing many of her own clothes which she continues to do even today. "This is one of my favourite things to do," says Sandie, "It relaxes me and is a perfect creative outlet that lets me wear clothing that is unique and specifically works with my body shape and personal style."
Her career has led Sandie down many paths but each of them has revolved around her love of fashion and passion for shopping. "I've been so fortunate to be able to spend my life doing something I feel passionate about," says Sandie. "Throughout my career I've been a model, a seamstress, TV host, spokesperson and M.C. at fashion shows and charity events. Her love of performing and shopping inspired her to combine the two for "Shop with Me" - an exciting half-hour program on CHtv in Hamilton that showcased local merchants. Loyal views of The Shopping Channel will also remember that Sandie was a host here for over 2 years where her endless knowledge of fashion and fit made her an on-air favourite.
Sandie loves to experiment with fashion and home decor using fabrics in unique and inventive ways. "I enjoy the unexpected," explains Sandie. "I love to create interesting pieces like an evening dress made out of denim or a drapery valance made from flowing organza."
Sandie credits her success as a host and guest at The Shopping Channel to her honesty, "I think viewers have seen enough of me to realize that I'm not going to lead them astray. I'll mention on-air if I don't think a garment is right for everyone. But if I can see a top that can be worn by an 18-year-old or 80-year-old, I'll mention that too."
If Sandie could offer only one piece of advice to viewers what would it be? "I'd tell people to find their signature look," Sandie explains.
