Day 8 of the sheerluxurylingerie interview with Diane Houston, talented Scottish founder of Gilda & Pearl and Diane talks about her the wonderful achievements of Gilda & Pearl
Tara:You must be very proud of your awards.  What is your proudest achievement to date and do you have any other you particularly want to gain? Diane:It’s so hard to pick one as I adore my job and there have been so many fantastic highs. It was wonderful to be selected as ‘Talent D’Intima’ for my first Salon de la Lingerie show in Paris- knowing that my babydoll was on the Paris catwalk was a great feeling- though I couldn’t even see it as I was so busy at my booth! Also to be chosen for support by the Prince’s Trust was fantastic. The ongoing contact and support from them is incredible. I have been asked to give a talk for them a few times, which is always a pleasure. Receiving positive feedback from our customers is also something I also consider to be a really proud achievement every time. It means the world to me. As for other achievements I want to gain, how long have you got?! I want to keep growing Gilda & Pearl steadily whilst remaining true to the label’s values. I want to keep working and growing with our fabulous stockists, and I also have several plans in the pipeline for international expansion within the next three years. As well as working with our amazing production team in England. I really hope to increase our production in my native Scotland too. Offering apprenticeships to young people in the city I grew up in is something I would love to do.
We love the beautiful luxury lingerie created in Great Britian by Gilda & Pearl.  We are very proud to stock the Loren babydoll, a beautiful silk nightwear garment in 100% gold silk, which has been designed and made exclusively for by Gilda & Pearl.  It can be found on the following link:
