7 Virtues’ Barb Stegemann on CBC’s The National

Our vendor,  CEO and author Barb Stegemann has been named an honorary colonel by the Canadian military. She’s been recognized for cultivating a sweet-smelling route out of poverty with her fragrance, 7 Virtues, sold at The Shopping Channel. The oils are sourced from Afghanistan to provide alternatives to the illegal poppy crops by growing orange blossoms that are distilled into exquisite oils. The fragrance is then made in Canada.

CBC The National showcased Stegemann and showcased her story, some of which caught in our very own studio. She is the first civillian to be granted this honor, and we thank her for her commitment for helping out in Afghanistan.

16 Years and Counting - Kim & Co.

The TODAY’S SHOWSTOPPER for The Shopping Channel on October 13th / 14th - Deluxe Jersey Bolero Jacket & Empire Cut Dress Set.

The Shopping Channel March 1999 – Charlotte (left), Anne (middle) & me (right)

Hi Everyone, Kim here. This month I’m celebrating 16 years at The Shopping Channel here in Canada. Wow, time flies when you’re having fun. I remember my very first show, being as shy as I am, I was so nervous that I really tried to find someone to take my place. My first show host was Susan Yull whom I met just 30 minutes before the show, I’ll never forget how she effortlessly (while eating a chocolate bar) absorbed the essence of everything we spoke of and then quoted back every word I said On Air without a note in front of her, I was completely impressed!




In celebrating this anniversary, we decided to bring a seasonless, but certainly for this holiday season, 2 piece set as a TODAY’S SHOWSTOPPER (item # 577603). You will be receiving our most popular Bolero Jacket which coordinates with other items in the Deluxe Jersey fabric as well as Stretch Velvet, Slinky, and 4 brand new prints. The other piece of this set is an Empire Cut Dress. The features that I love most about this dress is the shirring at both shoulder which softens them as well as the shirring at the crossover empire cut (which is angled). From the hip to the hem is the best of a full and straight Skirt, this is due to the technical triangle insert making it more forgiving. This set is available in 6 colors being Purple, Black, Cognac, Plum, Red and Eggplant from size extra small to XXXL. To shop now (other than the showstopper) go to




After almost 24 years in business and 16 of them with The Shopping Channel, my team and I would like to this opportunity to thank everyone at The Shopping Channel and all of you for making me feel at home in your homes.

I would like to hear about your very first Kim & Co. item. You can leave your comments here on the blog, on my Facebook (Search Kim Mendelson or go to and click on the Facebook link) or send an e-mail to Can’t wait to hear from you.

Love, Kim

Kim & Co. - My Inspiration

Hello, Kim here to tell you about one of my favorite Canada Day memories and about the Kim & Co. Today’s Showstopper for Canada Day 2011. Unfortunately, I won’t be able to be there but having known Sandie Savelli for years I know she will be as fabulous as always and will represent us well.

Canada Day 1967 - I remember it like it was yesterday. My parents took my sister Leslie, brother John and I to Expo 67! My mom was 6 months pregnant with my twin brothers Wally and Michael, so I guess in a way they were there too. I remember wearing my favorite yellow printed sleeveless square neck dress. Even back then I loved my dresses. My mom had to fight with me to take them off at night because if it was up to me I would have slept in them.

Today I sit in my kitchen with my mom reminiscing about those days. She is quick to remind me how much she loved to dress me as a little girl. Who would have imagined back then that years later I would be the one dressing her! She adores the Today’s Showstopper Maxi Dress. She raves about how comfortable it is and has even asked me for another one in a different color / print. Sorry mom, there’s none left!

How did the Kim & Co. Maxi Dress come to be? Well, while on vacation in Nice, the South of France, back in 2009 I picked up a sleeveless v-neck Maxi Dress! I wore it from the beach in the afternoon with flip flops, right into the casino in Monaco that evening. Being a designer I was inspired. I got home and brought the dress right to the office saying “we have to make a Maxi Dress!” So started a new era for Kim & Co. as the Maxi Dresses took off!

Father’s Day 2011 - So there I was with the 7 different colorways of the dress trying to decide which one to wear to brunch. Once again my mother was trying to dress me. She got so excited that she insisted on taking pictures of me in each dress. Trying them all on again, each one had a different mood and attitude yet all had the same carefree, comfortable feeling.

Being an international label, it is an honor and privilege to bring you a Canadian designed and produced Today’s Showstopper. I hope you love it as much as we do here at Kim & Co. wishing you all a wonderful time celebrating Canada’s birthday. I can’t wait to be back with you on August 17th. Till then, keep letting the beauty of you shine through.

Love, Kim
