How Albany Irvin Built Her Own Empire After Leaving QVC

Who is Albany Irvin?

Albany Irvin is a commercial television host and speaker who has worked for various advertisers and television retail channels including the popular QVC (Qurate Retail Group), ShopHQ, and Wayfair. A popular selling host, Albany describes herself in her Instagram bio as a “globetrotter, fashion finder, fitness junkie and underdog cheerleader” to her 17,000 followers and regularly features lifestyle shots on her social media account, to publicize her work for various brands alongside her luxurious, jet-setting adventures.

A career chameleon, Albany has dipped her talented toes into multiple companies since 1995, where she began her extensive career assisting various companies across America and Europe in how to market effectively using B2B and B2C. With an academic background in sciences and vocational experience in consumer electronics, Albany developed a great flair for turning complex, technical information into something marketable and attractive for consumers. As a fitness instructor teaching Zumba since 1992 and lover of fashion herself, Albany Irvin found herself with the perfect combination of experience to work as both a technical and beauty sales representative for numerous outlets.


Her parents, who she affectionately refers to as Scarlet O’Hara and the Colonel often moved her around as a child and as a result of this, she found her experiences as the “new girl” gave her a lot of confidence to get to know all kinds of new people, from various cultures and walks of life. This proved to be the perfect preparation for a shopping host, in front of the cameras all day!

Why did Albany Irvin leave QVC?

Albany has worked for multiple companies over the years, constantly looking for new and exciting ways to demonstrate and use her vast wealth of experience. With her vibrant personality, good looks and desire for luxury, it’s obvious that she loves to be kept on her toes in all that she does. Working for the high-profiled and well established QVC platform who broadcast to an incredible 350 million homes in multiple countries, it was here that Albany cemented herself as a household name.

Despite predictable and pervasive reports of Albany’s departure being more dramatic than it was, allegedly from those behind the shopping channel itself, and rumors circulating all over the web of the host being fired, the truth is a lot less scandalous; Albany simply wanted to move on and if anything, it was spending more time with her family, in particular her children which led to her decision to leave the channel in the year 2016. But, being quite the busy bee, it wasn’t long at all before she was setting her sights towards her next venture. Less than a year later, she was already working on her new project – an Italian jewelry line – and establishing her own company.
